Critical social theorist David Harvey, distinguished professor of geography at the department of anthropology at the Graduate Center of City University of New York, hosts a discussion at the event, called “The Neoliberal City.” He traces the history of neoliberalism — the view that individual freedom can best be protected through an institutional structure of free markets and free trade — focusing on the New York City fiscal crisis of the 1970s.

Harvey, a leading academic geographer, is author of numerous books, including “A Brief History of Neoliberalism,” which provides examples of divergent practices of neoliberalism since the mid 1970s, and “The Condition of Postmodernity,” which the London Independent newspaper described as one of the 50 most important works of non-fiction published since 1945. Other books include “The New Imperialism,” “Paris, Capital of Modernity,” “Social Justice and the City,” and “Spaces of Hope.”

Harvey, one of the most influential scholars of post-war culture in advanced capitalist societies, has written on globalization, social justice, urban sustainability, the importance of space and place, environmental transformation, and the new imperialism.

Harvey, who earned his Ph.D. from Cambridge University, formerly was professor of Geology at Johns Hopkins University, a Miliband Fellow at the London School of Economics, and Halford Mackinder professor of Geology at Oxford.

He has received the Outstanding Contributor Award of the Association of American Geographers; the Anders Retzius Gold Medal of the Swedish Society of Anthropology and Geography; and the 2002 Centenary Medal of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. He holds honorary doctorates from the universities of Buenos Aires, Roskilde in Denmark, Uppsala in Sweden, and Ohio State University”

“According to the United Movement Against Racism and the Fascist Threat (KEERFA), more than 2,000 immigrants held in detention centers in Greece have been on a hunger strike since April 6 to denounce the intolerable conditions.

KEERFA activists said at a press conference on April 8, ‘The culmination of the poor detention conditions, the mistreatment and tortures migrants have to deal with in reception centers was the three suicide attempts which happened in Amygdaleza center in northern Athens last weekend.’

Two migrants attempted to commit suicide at the Amygdaleza detention camp. One drunk a bottle of shampoo and the other one cut himself with broken glass.”.

“‘…toxic waste, nuclear waste doesn’t go to the residential zones of New York or Washington. It gets sent to Indian territory’ comments Subcomandante Marcos while talking with communities in the northern Mexican state, Sonora, close to the U.S. border. In the middle of the desert and in the ancestral territory of the indigenous Papago (O’odham) peoples, the federal government has already authorized the construction of a toxic waste dump. The Quitovac people, located at the heart of the conflict, is searching for a way to change its death sentence.”

This regime is sketched on the back side of the map. The map is available for download as a high resolution pdf here [back side here]. please click on the image below to view the map in your browser.
