Shame on Bloomberg (the richest man in NYC!). Quadruple Shame on Marty Markowitz (we expect this crap from Bloomberg, but Markowitz was once a housing advocate, who has thrown his borough under the bus) Paterson (well, he is just a deer in headlights).
Today's GroundTAKING in Brooklyn is nothing short of a disgrace. These politicians, rap stars, union workers and more - celebrating:
displacement, harassment, gag orders, the demise of a democratic process, deplorable dividing of neighborhoods, lies, greed, false promises, transparent, strategic partnering and buying out of so called community groups....where to end?
The pride of this project, any potential "good" it might have ever been perceived to have - is tarnished by years of corruption, insincerity, back room deals, childish mob mentality... where to end? The foundation of this project will be built on "root shock." Human decency, where is ye?
Brooklyn is pretending to be owned by Ratner (A wealthy developer who lives in the richest district of Manhattan), Barclays (A British Bank) and a Russian Oligarch (Wha?) - Brooklyn Pride??!
Miss Wit is ANGRY and SAD.
These fat cats can afford to come out in the middle of the day. We know not everyone else can...but if you can...join us at Freddy's at 12:30
