This just in from the FROGGS:
Thursday August 8th at 7:15pm
Carroll Street bridge, Gowanus
There will be a rally on Thursday night at the Carroll Street bridge to protest the Lightstone 12 story, 700 unit project on the toxic Gowanus Canal and publicly air our grievances. Bill Thompson is scheduled to attend and will be speaking with concerned community members. The media has also been invited. This is not a rally to endorse Thompson's mayoral candidacy; instead, it is a chance to bring broader attention to our issue of irresponsible development (which endangers scale, zoning, schools, transit and health and safety) in the context of the mayoral race.
It is extremely urgent that as many of you attend as possible. Please invite your neighbors as well. We need to show all our elected representatives how important this issue is to our community. They've already heard from the developers and their lobbyists; now it's our turn to be heard. This is the protest that will hopefully help bring attention to our issue in the media and the mayoral race.
Please be there and bring the kids and a friend.
And please pass along this flyer!
