Guerra de clases en Virginia Occidental

first_imgACTUALIZACIÓN, 6 DE MARZO: Después de nueve días consecutivos de huelga, las/os militantes maestros de Virginia Occidental (VO) y el personal de la escuela se enfrentaron al gobernador derechista y a la legislatura para ganar un aumento salarial del 5 por ciento, no solo para ellas/os mismos, sino pero para todas/os los trabajadores del estado. Habían jurado permanecer fuera hasta que ganaran. El proyecto de ley que autoriza el aumento pasó la Cámara y el Senado y fue firmado por el gobernador esta tarde. Las/os maestros y el personal probablemente vuelvan a trabajar el 7 de marzo, pero la posibilidad de una acción renovada permanece, especialmente en relación con la financiación del seguro de salud. Para seguir las luchas de las/os trabajadores en el estado, incluidas las de trabajadoras/es de Frontier representados por CWA, que aún están en huelga, vaya a FB: WWP West Virginia – Strike Support.5 de marzo: En Virginia Occidental, famosa por las batallas campales entre mineros sindicalizados y los señores del carbón, se está librando una guerra de clases. Esta vez son maestras/os y todas/os los empleados de la escuela por un lado y los políticos capitalistas de derecha en el otro. Para citar la vieja canción sindical, “¿De qué lado estás?” – “no existen neutros “.Las/os trabajadores de la educación seguían en los piquetes al final del día,continuando su histórica huelga estatal por mejores salarios, así comopor el cuidado de la salud y en contra de otros ataques que destruyen los sindicatos. Virginia Occidental ocupa el puesto 48 en los EUA en lo que respecta a los salarios de las/os docentes: ganan menos en sólo otros dos estados. El salario inicial es de alrededor de $32.000 por año, y las/os maestros con familias a menudo deben solicitar asistencia alimentaria.La huelga en los 55 condados, que comenzó el 22 de febrero, continuaráindefinidamente hasta que el Senado estatal apruebe un proyecto de ley que otorgue a las/os trabajadores de educación estatal un aumento del 5 por ciento.El 28 de febrero, la Cámara aprobó el aumento salarial del 5 por ciento, que multimillonario gobernador republicano Jim Justice aprobó en conversaciones con los tres sindicatos el día antes. Pero el 1 de marzo, el Senado de derecha propuso quitarle el aumento y desviarlo hacia supuestamente el “arreglo” del plan de seguro médico. La legislatura creyó que esto engañaría a las/os trabajadores. Pero la falsedad capitalista solo enfureció más a las/os trabajadores.Los miembros de la Cámara de Representantes y del Senado están fuertemente influenciados por los propietarios de compañías del carbón, gas y petróleo de VO.Por tres días, incluso un sábado cuando se convocó una sesión especial, el Senado no aprobó el aumento del 5 por ciento. Luego intentaron sustituir por un aumento del 4 por ciento bajo el cuento de dárselo a todas/os los trabajadores del estado.Una declaración conjunta de los sindicatos en huelga explicó por qué era inaceptable: “Uno no iguala el pago para diferentes grupos simplemente tomando de un grupo y pasándolo a otro. El propósito de esto es claro: dividirnos y enfrentarnos el uno contra el otro”.Los tres sindicatos son la Federación Estadounidense de Maestros-West Virginia, la Asociación de Educación de West Virginia y la Asociación de personal de Servicio Escolar de West Virginia.Un error administrativo del Senado de hecho aprobó el aumento del 5 por ciento brevemente antes de que los senadores pro negocios se apresuraran a borrar el aumento. Un comentario en los medios sociales de las/os huelguistas dijo que los legisladores parecían necesitar un maestro para ayudarlos a revisar sus figuras y su lenguaje.El impacto de las/os huelguistas se sintió temprano cuando el gobernador aprobó, y la Cámara, de mayoría republicana, pasó el aumento salarial. El gobernador tuvo que dejar de empujar los proyectos de ley que destruyen la antigüedad, promueven escuelas autónomas, evitan que los sindicatos deduzcan cuotas sindicales de los sueldos de sus miembros, y expanden “Teach for America”, un programa que contrata nuevas/os graduados universitarios sin grados de docencia a un menor pago. Este tipo de proyectos de ley forma parte de una campaña nacional antisindical financiada en parte por los hermanos multimillonarios y ultraderechistas Koch.La oferta del gobernador no creaba una solución permanente para la Agencia de Seguros de Empleados Públicos, solo proponía una “congelación” temporal de las primas de seguros de atención médica y un “equipo de trabajo” para encontrar más fuentes de financiación. Sin embargo, los peores cambios legislativos a ASEP -principalmente varias excusas para aumentar las primas – están pausados ​​por el momento.La fuerza de lo que es esencialmente una huelga general de trabajadoras/es de la educación se demostró el 2 de marzo cuando 45 superintendentes escolares de los condados dijeron a los legisladores republicanos que las escuelas permanecerían cerradas hasta que se aprobara el aumento del 5 por ciento. Ahora 55 superintendentes han tomado esa posición.Huelga en todo el estadoLas/os huelguistas se han manifestado alrededor de la consigna #55Strong. Las/os huelguistas multinacionales, en su mayoría mujeres, insatisfechas por la propuesta del gobernador, consideraban que merecían una mayor participación en el contenido del acuerdo. Así que el miércoles 28 de febrero, las/os trabajadores siguieron protestando con gritos de “¡No permitiremos que nadie cruce esta línea!”. Algunos que votaron por Trump y los republicanos en las últimas elecciones ahora apuntan a la traición de los ricos, gritando “¡Haz que paguen en mayo!”, cuando se celebren las elecciones primarias. (USA Today, 1 de marzo).Según la ley estatal, las huelgas del sector público son ilegales, pero las/os trabajadores de West Virginia conocen la historia laboral. La Batalla de Blair Mountain en 1921 en el condado de Logan fue el levantamiento laboral más grande en la historia de EUA, con 10.000 mineros armados enfrentando a 3.000 policías y rompehuelgas. A lo largo del siglo XX, United Mine Workers fue una poderosa fuerza, con huelgas frecuentes, incluidas miles durante los años setenta. Algunas/os huelguistas llevan pañuelos rojos como los que los mineros usaron durante la revuelta de 1921.El jueves 1 de marzo, las/os trabajadores desafiantemente comenzaron su segunda semana en huelga. Un miembro del sindicato dijo a WW-MO que la mayoría de los huelguistas quieren que las grandes empresas, especialmente del petróleo, paguen impuestos a una tasa más alta para que el estado pueda pagar a las/os trabajadores de educación mejores salarios y beneficios.Los días 2, 3 y 5 de marzo, los mítines atrajeron a miles de personas a Charleston, la capital del estado. El 2 de marzo, cientos de estudiantes marcharon para apoyar a sus maestras/os, sosteniendo carteles y gritando: “Los maestros nos apoyan, apoyamos los maestros”. Se han unido a las/os maestros para ocupar el interior del edificio del Capitolio durante varios días.Mond Jones, organizador de la conferencia “Derrotar la Austeridad” de Workers World-Mundo Obrero en Detroit el 24 de marzo, describió su día en VO: “La mañana del 5 de marzo desayunamos justo en VO. Las/os profesores en las mesas cercanas tenían camisetas de huelga. Dijeron que ahora es más fácil organizar una huelga con las redes sociales. En el Capitolio había alrededor de 10.000 personas, 4.000 ocupando el interior y 6.000 afuera. En su mayoría eran mujeres, todas muy militantes. Nuestra literatura fue bien recibida. Todos los sindicatos tenían una fuerte presencia, junto con la Asociación de Maestros Jubilados”.Jerry Goldberg, de la Coalición ¡Moratoria AHORA! en Detroit, dijo a las/os huelguistas: “Estamos 100 por ciento con ustedes”.Esta lucha histórica no es sólo entre trabajadoras/es a favor de la unión y políticos antisindicales. Es trabajo vs. capital. Todas/os los trabajadores de VO se enfrentan a peligros para su salud y sus medios de subsistencia debido a las depredaciones del Banco y las industrias del Petróleo. El Informe del Presupuesto Ejecutivo del estado de 2018 establece: “El porcentaje del ingreso de cada ciudadano asignado al pago de la deuda estatal a los bancos e instituciones financieras es del 2,8 por ciento o $1.020 por ciudadano”.Luchando por el sindicatoLos sindicatos benefician a todas/os. Su estructura ofrece asistencia de combate, recursos y comunicación organizacional. Los sindicatos permiten a sus miembros conectarse y construir militancia desde abajo.Si bien la ira de las/os trabajadores se ha extendido a los principales líderes sindicales, que parecían dispuestos a poner fin a la huelga prematuramente, las/os huelguistas están reaccionando positivamente al anuncio oficial de los sindicatos de que la huelga continuará hasta que el aumento del 5 por ciento se convierta en ley. Lucharon por tener sindicatos y ahora luchan para hacerlos pelear.El profesor y activista sindical Phil, que se manifestó en el edificio del Capitolio el 1 de marzo, dijo a WW-MO: “Ha habido muchas conversaciones antisindicales entre ultraizquierdistas y conservadores. La gente necesita luchar dentro de sus sindicatos, para hacerlos más progresistas y conscientes de su clase. Necesitamos radicalizar y transformar a los sindicatos desde adentro a nivel local.“Algunos creen que los líderes de la asociación están negociando directamente con el gobernador. En realidad, los legisladores logran acuerdos y venden a los trabajadores. Estos políticos tienen los intereses de las compañías de energía y el capital privado.“La lucha de las/os trabajadores de la educación y las/os docentes es una lucha de clases por la justicia social, una lucha social contra el racismo y el capitalismo y contra la austeridad. Esperamos construir la idea de conciencia de clase a través de la participación de los sindicatos locales. Cuando las personas abandonan los sindicatos, no construimos conciencia de clase. Afortunadamente, después de esta lucha, la gente continuará participando y fortaleciendo y radicalizando sus sindicatos“.A pesar de las fallas en el liderazgo de alto nivel, la unión no es el enemigo. ¡El enemigo es la clase capitalista multimillonaria!Solidaridad se multiplicaUna tremenda solidaridad ha venido de otros sindicatos: Teamsters, Mine Workers, Communication Workers e incluso sindicatos en otros países.La Asamblea de Trabajadores del Sur emitió un mensaje de solidaridad: “En los días que esperamos la decisión de la Corte Suprema sobre el caso Janus, que afectaría a los trabajadores del sector público en todos los estados antisindicales del sur, se nos recuerda que incluso los trabajadores en estos estados concentrados en el sur de EUA, pueden construir sus sindicatos, luchar y ganar. El tipo de acción de masiva presentada por las/os educadores de VO es un ejemplo que todos podemos seguir”.Han llegado más mensajes de solidaridad, incluso del Sindicato de Conductores de Autobuses Escolares de Boston, United Steelworkers Local 8751; Harvard TPS Coalition, un grupo de cocineras/os sindicales, custodios y trabajadoras/es administrativos de la Universidad de Harvard que apoyan a las/os trabajadores inmigrantes que pierden el estatus de protección temporal; y Padres y Madres para un mejor transporte escolar con sede en Nueva York.El ejemplo de VO ya está siendo seguido. Alrededor de 1.400 miembros de Communication Workers en VO y Ashburn, Virginia, salieron del trabajo el 4 de marzo a la medianoche y están en huelga en Frontier Communications. Muchas/os de ellos estaban aprendiendo acerca de las huelgas mediante el piquete junto a las/os maestros. Están luchando por la seguridad laboral ya que Frontier ha eliminado 500 empleos desde que adquirió las líneas fijas de Verizon en 2010.El mundo está observando la guerra de clases en Virginia Occidental. ¡Poder para las/os miembros sindicales de base dirigiendo su ira ardiente contra la crueldad del sistema capitalista!Otis Grotewohl contribuyó a este artículo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Newspaper editor arrested while visiting former minister in prison

first_img CameroonAfrica Case against Amadou Vamoulké baseless, French lawyers tell Cameroon court Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns newspaper editor Raphaël Nkamtcheun’s detention for the past week for receiving allegedly confidential government documents from former finance minister Polycarpe Abah Abah when he visited Abah in Yaoundé prison on 17 February. Abah has been jailed since 2008 on an embezzlement charge.“This is an arbitrary act designed to silence the press,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Nkamtcheun has done nothing to justify being arrested. Receiving a document from a prisoner you are visiting is not a crime. It is understandable that the authorities might want to know how Abah came to be in possession of these documents but accusing a journalist is unacceptable.”The press freedom organisation added: “We urge the authorities to respect the methods of investigative journalism. It is normal for investigative reporters to be shown official documents. It is an essential part of their work. Nkamtcheun must be freed at once.” May 19, 2021 Find out more News Cameroonian journalist Paul Chouta sentenced and fined in defamation case Receive email alerts RSF_en Help by sharing this information CameroonAfrica Cameroonian reporter jailed since August, abandoned by justice system April 23, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Cameroon May 31, 2021 Find out more Organisation February 23, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor arrested while visiting former minister in prison News News Kondengui prisonNkamtcheun went to the prison at the request of Abah, who had already provided him with information for publication in his newspaper, La Boussole, on several occasions in the past.

The city saw 12 new COVID-19 cases and no new deaths on Monday.Total known infections in Pasadena stood at 2,023.Tuesday’s reported case count was the smallest seen in over a week, city data show. The last time fewer cases were reported was on July 27, when five infections were announced.Over the previous seven days, Pasadena saw an average of 14.3 new COVID-19 cases daily. The average was above 30 new cases as recently as July 24.State and county officials have both reported seeing a decline in new infections in recent days.But it was far from time to assert victory over the coronavirus and give up on social distancing, according to Derderian.“It’s too soon to declare a trend,” she said. “We all need to remain vigilant and proactive.”Forty patients were being treated at Huntington Hospital for COVID-19 as of Tuesday, according to hospital data. Fourteen tests were pending.At the county level, public health officials reported 1,901 new COVID-19 cases and 57 new deaths, but cautioned that information was incomplete due to delays in the state’s electronic lab reporting (ELR) system.“Public Health learned of new issues with the state ELR feed on an emergency call convened by the state last night,” according to an L.A. County Department of Public Health statement. “This issue has undercounted the county’s positive cases and affects the number of COVID-19 cases reported each day and our contact tracing efforts. However, there should not be delays in patients being notified of lab results, as laboratories continue to report tests results directly to providers and hospitals.”County health officials have begun “urgently” reviewing data from at least 81 labs, dating back to July 26, “to determine the accurate positive case count in Los Angeles County for the time period in question,” according to the statement. “Public Health is also implementing a system for all labs to report positive test results to the department immediately so that moving forward the department can have an accurate case count and be assured that contact tracing efforts are not delayed.”Once adjustments are made, tallies of infections and deaths are expected to be revised upward, county officials said.The county has recorded 195,614 infections since the start of the pandemic, as well as 4,758 deaths.Hospitalitions, which were not affected by the data error, were tallied at 1,757, with 31 percent of the patients being treated in intensive care units, officials said. “Daily hospitalizations were over 2,000 patients last week.”Disputing the problems with data reporting, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said there were still positive signs.“While the missing data is troubling and hinders efforts to monitor and reduce the spread of COVID-19, data sources that track other key indicators, including hospitalizations, are not affected by this reporting issue,” she said. “Hospitalization data for Los Angeles County still shows a decrease, and we continue to be cautiously optimistic that our efforts over the past few weeks may be starting to slow the spread.”The county’s positivity rate was at 10 percent, with more than 1.8 million tests administered, according to public health officials.The California Department of Public Health announced 4,536 new detected infections, the lowest number seen since June 21, along with 113 deaths.“The 7-day average number of new cases is 7,554 per day,” the agency said in a written statement. “The 7-day average from the week prior was 9,397.”California has recorded 519,427 COVID-19 infections in total as of Tuesday, as well as 9,501 deaths attributed to the illness, according to state data.Just over 6,300 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 in the state, with 1,892 of them being treated in intensive care units.Based on the provided data, Los Angeles County accounted for 38 percent of California’s known infections and 50 percent of the state’s deaths. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimeslast_img read more

Französische Streitkräfte setzen beim Ausbau ihrer sicheren Satellitenkommunikation auf die Expertise von Thales

first_img Pinterest Französische Streitkräfte setzen beim Ausbau ihrer sicheren Satellitenkommunikation auf die Expertise von Thales Twitter Facebook TAGS  Pinterest PARIS LA DÉFENSE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 19, 2021– Die französische Beschaffungsbehörde (DGA) hat Thales als Hauptauftragnehmer für einen zweiten Teil des Bodensegments des Satellitenkommunikationssystems Syracuse IV für die Streitkräfte ausgewählt. Der Konzern wurde 2015 mit der Lieferung der Satelliten und 2019 als Hauptauftragnehmer für die erste Kapazitätserhöhung des Bodensegments beauftragt. Diese zweite Kapazitätserhöhung wird die interoperablen Kommunikationsfähigkeiten von Heer, Marine und Luftwaffe in Frankreich in Bezug auf Datendurchsatz, Verfügbarkeit, Bedrohungsresistenz und End-to-End-Konnektivität verbessern. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210219005333/de/ SATCOM antenna © Getty Images Die militärische Satellitenkommunikation ist so einsatzkritisch wie nie zuvor und anfälliger für Angriffe. Sie ist der Mittelpunkt im Kampf um strategische Unabhängigkeit in jedem Bereich der militärischen Invention. Für die Fähigkeit der Streitkräfte, Informationen aller Art zwischen Kommandozentralen und Einheiten bei Einsätzen jeder Art auszutauschen, darunter auch Koalitionseinsätzen, ist die Aufrechterhaltung der Konnektivität äußerst wichtig. Dieser wichtige Programm-Meilenstein wird die Leistung des Bodensegments in allen Einsatzgebieten in den drei Teilbereichen des französischen Militärs verbessern. Die Lösung von Thales wird entscheidend dazu beitragen, die Kapazitätsanforderungen von Land-, Marine- und Luftwaffenprogrammen wie Scorpion, FREMM, FDI, Barracuda, Flugzeugträger bzw. Rafale zu erfüllen. Sie soll die sichere Kommunikation von sich bewegenden Kampffahrzeugen, Überwasserschiffen, U-Booten und nun auch Flugzeugen um das Zehnfache steigern. Die Technologie von Thales ermöglicht die Roaming-Kommunikation sowohl im X- als auch im Ka-Band und schöpft das Multispot-Potenzial der Technologie für Satelliten mit hohem Datendurchsatz (HTS) voll aus. Alle Bodenterminals des Systems werden die Konstellation Syracuse IV optimal nutzen können. Durch ihre vollständige Verbindung über neue Docking-Terminals wird der Datendurchsatz erheblich gesteigert, da in Einsatzgebieten und mit Kommandozentralen zusammengearbeitet werden kann. Überdies werden sie je nach Einsatzgebiet mit den Satellitenressourcen von Dritten kompatibel sein, ohne die Kommunikationssicherheit zu beeinträchtigen. Zur Erreichung dieses Ziels wird Thales seine hohe Sachkenntnis im Bereich der Systemintegration und insbesondere das hochsichere Übertragungssystem Modem 21 einsetzen, um ohne Beeinträchtigung der operativen Leistung die Verfügbarkeit und Vertraulichkeit der gesamten Kommunikation zu gewährleisten und Schutz vor dem gesamten Bedrohungsspektrum zu bieten. Dies ist zur Aufrechterhaltung der Informationshoheit in Einsätzen mit hoher Intensität sehr wichtig. Die dem NATO-Standard entsprechende Lösung Modem 21 von Thales hat sich seit über zehn Jahren im Kampfeinsatz bewährt. Thales Alenia Space wird im Rahmen dieses Vertrags für das Einsatzmanagement für die Syracuse-Konstellation und das Management der Verankerungskapazitäten des Betreibers, der übergreifenden Behörde für Infrastrukturnetzwerke und Informationssysteme des französischen Verteidigungsministeriums (DIRISI), zuständig sein. Thales Alenia Space ist überdies Hauptauftragnehmer des von der DGA Ende 2015 erteilten Auftrags zur Lieferung des Raumsegments bestehend aus den Satelliten Syracuse 4A und 4B und deren Bodensegment für Kontrolle und Einsatz. Mithilfe seiner Expertise als Koordinator und Integrator von Technologie für Satellitenkommunikationssysteme in Frankreich und auf internationaler Ebene hat Thales in Zusammenarbeit mit lokalen Industriepartnern weltweit über 1.000 sichere, geschützte Satellitenkommunikationsstationen errichtet. „Thales ist seit 2004 Hauptauftragnehmer für die Bodensegmente für Syracuse III und Syracuse IV und stolz darauf, die Partnerschaft mit dem für die Streitkräfte zuständigen französischen Ministerium zu stärken, um die Informationshoheit der Streitkräfte des Landes in hochgradig konfliktgeladenen Umgebungen zu erhalten. Die im Rahmen dieses Vertrages gelieferten hoheitlichen Satellitenkommunikationslösungen sind widerstandsfähig gegen alle Arten von Bedrohungen, im Kampf erprobt und vollständig interoperabel mit den Systemen, die von den Koalitionsstreitkräften der NATO eingesetzt werden“, so Marc Darmon, Executive Vice President, Secure Communications and Information Systems, Thales. Hinweis für Redakteure Syracuse ist ein Programm für die geschützte Telekommunikation mithilfe von Satelliten, um jederzeit die Kommunikation der französischen Streitkräfte zwischen Frankreich und weltweit eingesetzten Streitkräften sicherzustellen. Das Programm Syracuse bietet eine völlig unabhängige Lösung für Frankreichs weitreichende Anforderungen an sichere Kommunikationsmöglichkeiten über größere Entfernungen, die gegen Bedrohungen durch elektronische Kriegsführung geschützt sind. Zwischen 1984 und 2015 wurden drei Generationen von Syracuse-Satelliten eingeführt. Das Programm Syracuse IV wird die derzeit im Orbit befindlichen Satelliten Syracuse 3A und Syracuse 3B ersetzen und gleichzeitig modernisierte und ergänzte Bodenstationen bereitstellen.

Redefining Property Values

The retail giant’s move to LIC and Arlington has got people on both sides of the spectrum. Some are excited and others remain skeptical about Amazon’s impact on New York City’s residential market. According to a PropertyShark report, there is a noticeable spike in listing views traffic. Views on Long Island City listings page increased by 198 percent, almost triple the views since November 12 after the announcement. On account of easy access to “Amazon Island City” and a heightened increase in homes in surrounding areas, the rate at which property prices grow is expected to accelerate in LIC, the report indicated. Astoria and Sunnyside are among neighborhoods where home prices will take off, while areas along Metro Line 7 will boom as well. Long before Amazon’s descent on LIC, the neighborhood experienced a surge in interest as well as home prices, with a median home price saw an increase of 35 percent in the last five years. Over the years, LIC has attained the tag of the most expensive and refined neighborhoods in Queens from the industrial district that it used to be. “Prices along various subway lines are going to rise by 25-40 percent. Neighborhoods that have been stable for generations are going to get gentrified and existing residents pushed out,” said Matthew Haines, real estate investor and founder of PropertyShark.According to PropertyShark, in the last five years, median home sale prices increased 35 percent, reaching a peak of $435,000 in 2017 and year-to-date, the median sits at $350,000, a drop of about 20 percent. The median home price is more than likely to increase at a much faster pace and drive demand in the near future, the report noted. The report found that median home prices in Hunters Point and neighboring areas are expected to reach $1 million soon. Hunters Point, Sunnyside, and South Astoria will all see an increase in home prices, rents, and new developments. Median home prices in Hunters Point will reach $1 million in the near future from the current median of $875,000. Sunnyside and South Astoria boast medians of $390,000 and $650,000, respectively. Areas in Queens are geared up for growth along major thoroughfares, metro lines, and bus lines that provide direct access to LIC, the report indicated.  Neighborhoods further east in the borough are considered affordable compared to Queen’s pricey waterfront neighborhoods. Gentrification is likely to spread eventually to neighborhoods such as Jackson Heights, Elmhurst, Corona, and Downtown Flushing due to direct access to Long Island City from these areas. Brooklyn will also see an increase in prices with Greenpoint at a median home sale price that surpasses $1.1 million. The upward trend is likely to continue in Williamsburg at $940,000, Bedford-Stuyvesant at $770,000 and Clinton Hill at $800,000.While the discussions are ongoing about how positive the impact of Amazon in both the communities, there will certainly be an upsurge in rising rents, home prices and living costs leading to further gentrification and new developments, the report concluded.
