PEOPLE’S HEARING AND MASS DEMONSTRATION AT NYCHA’S DRAFT ANNUAL PLAN HEARING!
Public · By G.O.L.E.S.
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 4:30pm: Pace University 1 Pace Plaza, New York
JOIN US IN THE FIGHT TO SAVE PUBLIC HOUSING!
NYCHA has proposed to build luxury housing on the parks and playgrounds of Lower East Side and Harlem public housing projects. Join us as we testify against this plan and express our opposition to the privatization of public housing!
We will meet at 4:30 pm at Pace University (enter at 3 Spruce Street). By filling up the Schimmel Center and holding a people’s hearing and mass demonstration outside, we will make our voices heard!!!
We, the concerned residents of NYC, demand that you:
DO NOT approve this proposed taking over of our public spaces by private development companies. If you approve this takeover, you will not only lose public support for your holding of a public position on NYC housing. But you will be destroing your career and political future and may wind up in a court of law and eventually behind bars for your voting against the public good and the public will.
We, as residents of NYC, are bound by the common interest that an affordable home is a basic human right and the public should NOT be denied this by the city.
If you proceed to allow this public land grab by private developers to take place, THE PEOPLE OF NYC WILL DEMAND YOUR IMMEDIATE RESIGNATION. If you fail to do so, you will be forced to resign… by organized residents. We will shut you down BY PEACEFUL METHODS because we are ORGANIZED and we care about justice, increased homelessness, lack of affordable housing, human rights and the future of NYC.
This campaign is also addressed to the Mayor Mike Bloomberg, all City Council members, and any future candidate with hopes of running for public office in fall of 2013.
