Atlantic Yards Protest; NYC Tech; 7/29; 1PM


WHEN: July 29, 2009
WHERE: outside Klitgord Auditorium of NYC Technical College
285 Jay Street, near Tillary

Participants will start gathering at 1PM.

DIRECTIONS: A/C to Jay Street/Borough Hall OR 2/3 to Borough Hall

The Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) is holding a public hearing on the Atlantic Yards project on July 29th.

Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn (DDDB), and Council Member Letitia James urge you to join this protest against Ratner’s destructive project outside the hearing, and to come out and testify at the hearing.

As far as we know, there will be no more public hearings on Atlantic Yards; therefore, this should be considered the community’s chance to tell ESDC and Ratner:

We Don’t Want Atlantic Yards.

We Want Development That Works for the Community, Not at the Expense of the Community

Atlantic Yards Must Be Scrapped!

Join DDDB, other community groups, residents, clergy, union members, and elected officials for the protest.

The actual hearing is scheduled from 2PM-5PM and 6PM-8PM. DDDB asks the public to sign in and testify against the project. If you are unable to come for the afternoon protest and hearing, DDDB urges you to come for the late afternoon/evening hearing.

Bring Protest Signs. Speak your mind about the project.
