Occupy the Staten Island Ferry to protest the closing of the Forever Young Senior Center AND THEN Occupy The Subway in support of the workers at Golden Farm
This Saturday, Occu-Evolve and aligned groups will be Occupying The Staten Island Ferry to protest the closing of the Forever Young Senior Center, which is (NOT coincidentally) located in the same area where a Ferris Wheel, retail outlet, and underground parking lot has been proposed by Mayor Bloomberg and Borough President Guy Molinari.
This is yet another case of the lack of respect for the people in general and seniors in particular and shows how the power structure and 1% values profits over people.Once we leave the ferry there will be a Speakout at 10:00am in front of Borough Hall which is across the street from the Ferry Terminal.
After the speakout we will Occupy the Ferry again and then Subway to join the picket line at Golden Farm in Kensington (Brooklyn) from 2-4.
