Hundreds of low-income Detroit residents are being forced from their homes as part of a plan by Detroit officials to gentrify the downtown area.

The World Socialist Web Site interviewed residents at both the Griswold building downtown and the Henry Street Apartments in the Cass Corridor. Henry Street residents were told to vacate their homes within 60 days.

Most of the residents are retired and low-income, and many require special assistance for medical conditions.
