“The right to the city is far more than the individual liberty to access urban resources: it is a right to change ourselves by changing the city […] The freedom to make and remake our cities and ourselves is, I want to argue, one of the most precious yet most neglected of our human rights.”  - David Harvey

“A spectre takes on solid form and haunts the world, before conjuring itself out of existence.” - Tony Wood

What we’re reading :

This week we’re reading Fully Automated Luxury Communism, a manifesto by Aaron Bastani that outlines a radical vision in which automation and technological advances, by transforming the nature of work and production, will provide the basis for the founding of a new global society based on social justice. These transformations that he argues constitute the “Third Disruption” will not just ensure world’s survival, but the creation of a new world of social justice with “limitless public services and consumer commodities [...] free or affordable to all.” Further reading : Fully Automated Luxury Communism by Aaron Bastani – a manifesto for the future

A Weekly Correction : Regarding the EU

A Weekly Correction : Regarding the EU

In light of the European Parliamentary Elections that have taken place over the course of the past three days (results of which will be announced this evening), this edition of A Weekly Correction will focus exclusively on the European Union — its policies, legislative bodies, and the future challenges it will face. The articles we have round up offer widely divergent perspectives on the institution, namely among the Left, demonstrating the complexity and nuance of the subject. From visions that see the EU as necessary for a transnational working-class movement, to those that criticise it for its neoliberal policies and austerity, these articles help provide a basis for thoroughly understanding the implications of the election outcomes (as well as an understanding of the future of the EU more generally).

Social Housing: How to Take Back the City

We speak with Stephan Barton about rent control, why social housing is preferable to public housing, and how affordable cities are not Utopian dreams! Stephen Barton was the former director of the City of Berkeley Housing Department and former deputy director of the Berkeley Rent Stabilization Program.
