Eminent Domain Rally in Downtown Brooklyn

No Land Grab notes that there will be a rally today (8/26) from 3-6PM at 227 Duffield Street between Fulton and Willoughby at the Underground Railroad slave safehouse the city would destroy to create parking. The engineering firm involved in the project is the same one being used by Forest City Ratner and the New York Yankees.

"The rally is being hosted by one of our great community activists, Joy Chatel, and FUREE, a group that has been vocally defending the rights of public housing residents and other issues of economic racism," No Land Grab writes. Tours of the historic site are included and there will be food and dancing in addition to some speeches.
