Anne Hirsch Speaks at Rent too damn high! Affordable housing not luxury apartments!
July 21 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement is calling an PLANNING meeting on Tuesday July 23, 7PM to be located at Akwaaba Hall, 1245 18th Ave S, to plan a PRESS CONFERENCE and POLITICAL ACTION in response to the recent announcement by the Kriseman administration that a luxury apartment will be constructed at the Skyway Marina District in the south side of St. Petersburg.
InPDUM invites all local progressive organizations to co-sponsor this action. This would mean mobilizing your forces to attend the march and having a spokesperson who would make a statement at the march.
Kriseman was quoted in the newspaper saying that “there is a need for luxury housing in the south side,” despite the fact that the average cost of rent for a black family in the Tampa Bay Area is over 54 percent of annual income!
InPDUM is asking you to come to this planning meeting on Tuesday night, where InPDUM will be planning a major demonstration in St. Petersburg for Saturday, 4pm August 3rd, Saturday. On August 3rd, demonstration will meet-up for a RALLY @ 2333 34th St S, in the Center for Health Equity parking lot. We will then march to the Skyway Marina District a the location of the old K-Mart, where they are planning to build their luxury condos.
