Maya Bhullar On June 29 Ontarians will have a new premier who takes power with a Progressive Conservative majority government. However, Ontarians also elected some amazing progressive candidates, and at rabble.ca we intend to amplify what people are doing to stand for what Ontarians want and to continue to support progressive change. This is the first of a new Activist Toolkit series on Ontario's fightback against proposed cutbacks and attacks on the things you believe are important. Tell us about what you are doing by sending an email to maya[at]rabble.ca. To launch the series, we reached out to all the progressive MPPs who were elected and asked them three questions: why they ran, what they heard at doors, and what we can do to help them stand for Ontarians. After a hard-fought campaign, the slate of MPPs headed to Queens Park are busy and need time to recuperate. We are so grateful to (in no particular order) France Gélinas (Nickel Belt), Peter Tabuns (Toronto Danforth), Laura Mae Lindo  (Kitchener ...

(Image: Lauren Walker / Truthout; Adapted: Justin Brown , Damien Gadal ) As rents become increasingly unaffordable throughout the metropolitan US, activists are looking at housing solutions beyond mere rent control, such as community land trusts -- successfully implemented in Cleveland -- and government-owned mixed-income housing projects with 99-year leases, such as those found in Vienna, Austria and Singapore. This Truthout original was only possible because of our readers' ongoing support. Can you make a monthly donation to ensure we can publish more like it? Click here to give.

Cleaning Up Toxic Sites Shouldn't Clear Out the Neighbors 19.7.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Abandoned industrial buildings at San Francisco’s Pier 70, with a smokestack in the background. (Photo: Lindsey Dillon) San Francisco has embarked on a project to transform its industrial southeast waterfront into a bike-friendly destination called the  Blue Greenway . When completed, the Blue Greenway will be a 13-mile network of parks, bike lanes and trails along the southeastern edge of the city.  Among its many benefits, the project creates green space and waterfront access in the low-income  Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood . The Blue Greenway is part of a larger transformation of Bayview Hunters Point. This older, neglected neighborhood is still full of vacant lots and a large, abandoned naval base, but it is becoming a landscape of  hip townhomes and new coffee shops .
