Joe Clement talks with Hart Noecker and Nick Caleb about gentrification in Portland and a Pedalpalooza ride* they're organizing to raise awareness and stimulate action around it. Hart and Nick discuss how they came to Portland, how they've seen it change, why they and others refer to this change as "gentrification", and why this is such a pressing issue. The promised online portion starts right after a 10 second musical clip at the end. In it they dive into a more open conversation about density, green capitalism and how the market distorts and undermines the aims of development, organizing working and poor communities to take, and more.
