Mark Leger says that according to a "leak"  we're evidently in Chicken
Little mode again in NYC - the Attorney General's Lawsuit may be settled and
garden destruction restraining order lifted. I don't doubt that some well
meaning paralegal or clerk in either the AG's office of HPD has passed on
this information. Nor do I doubt the earnestness of the attached

When City Council Parks Chair Addabo announced that Intro 206  bill was
"irrelevant", despite the fact that it had enough votes for passage was the
first shoe. Now, the other shoe has dropped. 

The sadness that  this call to arms gives many of us, especially when many
well meaning members of the NY community garden activist community were so
dismissive of  Intro 206 because it was either "elitist", or "didn't include
gardener input" or "only provided process and wouldn't save already ULURP'ed
gardens", or "didn't include the "Environmental Impact Study elements of the
AIG's lawsuit," is unbearable. 

We may, of course have NYC Council hearings after the bulldozings - whether
we have a process going forward that will permit communities to create or
legalize community gardens remains to be seen and grows more and more

See you on the bricks. All that remains, evidently, is street theater,
arrests, bulldozing and tears.
