MAJOR CITY COUNCIL RALLY — NEW DATE — NOW JUNE 28Posted: June 25, 2011
New Date… New Date… New Date… New Date
We found out last night that City Council will now be voting on the budget on Tuesday June 28. Meet at Bloombergville and go together to 49-51 Chambers Street to protest.
DEMONSTRATE AGAINST THE BUDGET CUTS
June 28, 12:00PM
Bring the message directly to City Council
Join us at 12pm on Tuesday at Bloombergville (Broadway and Park Place) then come with us to 49-51 Chambers Street (the Emigrant Bank Building) where City Council will be holding its vote. We have to let them know New Yorkers reject this budget — and they should too!
With a $3 billion surplus and hundreds of millions in uncollected revenue, the city has more than enough money avoid all cuts.
Since June 14, a coalition of students, city workers, activists, and concerned citizens has operated Bloombergville, a protest encampment occupied 24 hours a day across from City Hall in Lower Manhattan. Through leafletting, calls for protests, and creative street actions, the residents of Bloombergville and its supporters have worked to spread the word and rallied New Yorkers against the devastating impact of the proposed budget cuts. It’s not too late to have our voices heard.
COME TO BLOOMBERGVILLE ON TUESDAY — THEN COME WITH US TO PROTEST CITY COUNCIL AND THE BUDGET VOTE
