NYCLU Threatens to Sue to Keep Central Park Open

NYCLU | The New York Civil Liberties Union today testified that the proposed Parks & Recreation regulation to restrict protest activity on the Great Lawn in Central Park, ostensibly to protect the grass, is misguided and unconstitutional and threatened to sue if the proposal is adopted. The NYCLU said in testimony before the Parks & Recreation Committee of the City Council that the proposed protest ban which restricts the number of non-City approved events to just two per year, neither of which can exceed 50,000 people, amounts to a violation of the rights of protesters. more...  2 Comments

NYC Subway Crippled; Shows Consequences of Capitalism Run Amok and Lack of Investment in Public Infastructure

You Can't Take the A Train | The consequences of deeps cuts to a variety of public programs came to a head yesterday, with major implications for New Yorkers. Looks like there will be no c train for a long time (5 years) and forget about riding the a train, two. This is what happens when you dont help homeless people find a place to sleep during blizzards and cut back on mass transit infastructure for decades. I hope every rider of the NYC subway thinks about "cutting taxes to spur growth" and "running government like a business" as they wait for delayed, crowded trains over the next 5 years. more...  25 Comments
