Show #55 Ground Control

Anna Minton talks about her book ‘Ground Control’, and on the show we focus on the London 2012 Olympics. Britain’s streets have been transformed by the construction of new property – but it’s owned by private corporations, designed for profit and watched over by CCTV.  Have these gleaming business districts, mega malls, gated developments – even the Olympic Park – led to ‘regeneration’, or have they intensified social divisions and made us more fearful of each other? It reveals the untested – and unwanted – urban planning that is changing not only our cities, but the nature of public space, of citizenship and of trust.

Listen Now: 24th July 2012 Ground Control

About Loosey Parsuns

Yodet Gherez, me, presents a radio show on Resonance FM every week with different guests. Topics range from Libya to Anti EDL mobilizations to Global warming. I intend to explain things from an Anarchist's point view. If you're free thinking, smart and are not in it for a political agenda then you're welcomed on!
