Chinese Tenants Unite to Fight Corrupt Landlord

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 30, 2007

Xiao La Jiao blogs about the recent victory of Chinese and white tenants uniting in New York to take on a corrupt landlord in the blog of the same name:

Yesterday, residents of 55 and 61 Delancey Street met and celebrated their successes in holding their landlord accountable to their demands for safe housing, repairs, and an end to baseless evictions. With more than 500 HPD (Department of Housing Preservation and Development) violations, the tenants were living with some of the worst housing conditions in the city. Many had been served unwarranted eviction notices. Over the past few months, tenants have been participating in a rent strike and holding accountability meetings. They have also organized and participated in actions at the buildings with the support of the Chinatown Tenants Union.
