 Ivan speaks about the battle to stop gentrification in the DTES and respect area residents
 Weekly Program
 Ivan Drury and Music by David Rovics

I speak to CCAP organizer Ivan Drury, CCAP works mostly on housing, income, and land use issues in the Downtown Eastside (DTES) of Vancouver so the DTES can remain a low income friendly community.
Ivan speaks about the struggle against gentrification in the DTES neighborhood, how the city and developers literally have a blueprint of how to fundamentally change the area. How CCAP did an extensive report meeting with hundreds of area residents asking them what kind of neighborhood they wanted yet this report is getting ignored and the developers and local media are engaging in the decades old debate about urban renewal, how long are we as a society going to tolerate and engage in these old discredited arguments.

The residents of the DTES want a say in what happens in their community, they want the same dignity afforded other communities, mainly to be listened to and collaborated with.
