Haiya gentrification pp

  1. 1. Gentrification of the Mission District By: Hiya qare
  2. 2. What is gentrification? “The restoration of run-down urban areas by the middle class (resulting in the displacement of low-income residents)”  http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s= gentrification
  3. 3. Protest against the gentrification of the Mission District.
  4. 4. Location of the Mission District  Located in east central San Francisco  Also known as “inner mission” neighbor to Potrero Hill  Part of San Francisco’s supervisorial districts 6, 9, and 10.
  5. 5. History  Spanish missionaries during the late 18th century.  Spanish priest Father Francisco Palou founded Mission San Francisco de Asis on June 29, 1776.  Ranchos owned by Spanish Mexican families.  Lands around mission church became a primary area for attractions like bull and bear fighting, and horse races.
  6. 6. Ethnicity Trends  During 19th and 20th century Irish and German immigrant workers moved into the area.  During the 1940s-60s large number of Mexican immigrants moved into the area influencing a heavy Latino population in the district.  During the 1960s central and south American immigrants began to out number the Mexicans.  Gang affiliations emerged during the 1980s.
  7. 7. Current History  From the late 1990s to 2010, hipsters began to emerge which initially started gentrification.  House prices and rent immediately began to rise.  Number of Latino middle class families began moving to the outer mission or the east and south bay.  In the last decade, the Latino population dropped by 20%.
  8. 8. Reaction To Gentrification • The antgentrification was created. • This consists of an art exhibits by artists who experienced the negative effects of gentrification.
  9. 9. Recent Protests Against Gentrification  December 9, 2013  Google commuter bus blocked due to antigentrification protestors.  Organized by Heart of the City.
  10. 10. Recent Protests Against Gentrification  October 12, 2013  Took place on 24th and Mission St.  Put on by a cross section of residents, merchants, local organizations, and artists.
  11. 11. Gentrification=Racism  Middle class and minority families are displaced because of increase in rent.  Politicians justify these acts as a way to provide jobs and new investments for areas containing high unemployment, poverty, and neglect.  Developed out of the national wave “urban decay.”  People supporting gentrification are the real estate actors who want the rent paid by middle class white people.
  12. 12. Conclusion In my opinion, we as human beings need to end the separation amongst the human race through ways like gentrification and differences in social-classes. We must instead preserve and admire the differences in cultures that we are lucky to experience in this country.
