It's been awhile since I've written here at Daily Kos. We are recuperating from a nearly four year struggle against gentrification in my hometown of Peekskill NY. The all Democratic Party mayor and council completely forget there was a constitution, appealed to race based fears and even turned violent as our support picked up.
Our movement toppled the abusive housing director, city manager and the "leader" of the pack, former mayor Mary Foster. The whole story, and more, will be recounted in my upcoming book "Ghost of Robeson." Go over to the website for more details. This story would not be believable if we didn't have such thorough documentation. Check out the website here.
