Akile’ to speak at “Gentrification is Genocide!”

Gentrification is Genocide!

Hosted by the St Petersburg, FL branch of the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM)

From the Gasplant District and Methodist town to now Jordan Park and Child’s Park, the black community is being pushed out of St Pete but the city government and big developers. At this rate, there won’t be a black community in St Pete in two years time – unless there is a fight back in the form of a people’s movement!

There is a peoples movement for Eritha Akile’ Cainion for District 7 city council and Anne Hirsch for District 5 city council which is challenging the city government and the plans of the big developers to make St Pete a playground for the rich. This movement is fighting for a platform of “Make the Southside Black Again” and “Unity Through Reparations!”

Come out to this community meeting and bring forward the issues you care about and the solutions you want.

Food will be provided!
