  • Oppose Magazine
    Oppose MagazineOppose is a zine that offers a global take on gentrification form MA Arts and Lifestyle Journalism students and journalists at LCC. It looks at the problem of regeneration in London and beyond in serious and satirical ways - developers and hipsters, in particular, take the bashing. Is gentrification a process of social cleansing? As its name suggests, the zine adopts an oppositional stance to this idea and the way in which cities are being reshaped to disadvantage poorer communities.
