    It's an interesting concept, but I don't think they make it past the idea that there is no general consensus on whether gentrification is actually bad. I think if this group could gather more statistics/data on how large this level of displacement is when gentrification takes place then they might have a stronger case. While I understand the logic behind their belief they definitely need the data to back it up.

"If gentrification was a human rights violation, gentrification would be a human rights violation."
