Whose Interest Does a City Serve? ─ ─The Logic of Capital and Urbanization

This feature stems from the anti- Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link movement from the beginning of the year.  Lots of young people went on the street to protest  and the whole of society was shaken. In the name of “development”, real estate developers, with the help of the government, are making huge profits by tearing down affordable housing and replacing it with luxurious apartments.

If we want to act against capitalism, it is necessary for us to arm our thoughts with an understanding of the underlying logic of capital.
