Invitation to Mayor de Blasio: Meet with the Community and Answer Our Demands
Saturday, December 5th at 4pm to 6pm
Seward Park High School
350 Grand Street between Ludlow and Essex
Twice this fall over 1,000 people marched from Chinatown and the Lower East Side to City Hall demanding Mayor de Blasio take a stand against racism and displacement, and pass the Chinatown Working Group Rezoning Plan. The Mayor responded saying he would send a representative on his behalf, but he did not. He has time to travel to Puerto Rico, Italy and Israel, but he can’t take time to meet with people in his own city?!
Mayor de Blasio’s stark disregard for our community is appalling. We plan to hold a citywide demonstration in front of Gracie Mansion on December 16th to make sure Mayor de Blasio cannot ignore us.
We urge everyone to join us at a Town Hall Meeting to mobilize for a citywide rally. We are making a last effort to invite the Mayor to face our community and answer the community’s demands: why he refuses to pass the Chinatown Working Group Rezoning Plan, and why he continues to endorse the 421-a tax giveaway to developers like Extell, which are displacing low-income families and people of color.
Enough is enough. We Will Not Be Moved!
