El Hambre Mundial: Hacia Una Solución


Melissa Mark Viverito and Others Vote to Gentrify Harlem

Movement for Justice in El Barrio | To Our Fellow Members of the East Harlem Community,

On Wednesday, as predicted, the Council Member who is supposed to represent our district, Melissa Mark Viverito, voted in favor of the 125th Street rezoning plan despite fierce community resistance from across Harlem. Although we are not directly affected by this proposal, as Movement for Justice in El Barrio, community members of East Harlem, we are against the plans that the Council Members and city government
have to displace communities throughout Harlem. Movement for Justice in El Barrio was present to witness Melissa Mark Viverito in action at the
Chambers of the City Council.
