Civic Involvement Reminder: Save Coney Island Protest Today

If you're of a mind to express your opinion about keeping Coney Island's amusement district intact for amusements and to question the current redevelopment proposals or, if you want to take in a colorful scene, don't forget today's Save Coney Island protest at City Hall. The full rundown is here, but we'll note the demonstration will be on the steps of City Hall from 12:00-1:00. It all starts with a parade from 11:30-12:00 around the block and onto the steps of City Hall, followed by the demonstration itself. The speakers will include Charlie Denson (author of Coney Island Lost and Found), Richard Eagon (Coney Island Hysterical Society), Louis Scarcella (Coney Island Polar Bears), Dianna Carlin (Lola Staar), Jo Weldon (cultural activist) and others. There will be a parade up Broadway at 1:00. More info at Save Coney's My Space page.
