Their crisis, our challenge

In a far reaching interview with Red Pepper David Harvey argues that the current financial crisis could lead to a streamlined private banking system – helped by government bail-outs – carrying out business as usual, unless there is sustained revolt and pressure for a dramatic redistribution and socialisation of wealth. He sees struggles for democratic control over the life of our cities – housing, health, education, transport and the environment – as central to such a change and urges new alliances beyond the workplace to achieve it.
