> Subject:	URGENT! Day of HOPE & ACTION for Esperanza
> **********please forward far & wide*************
> This MONDAY, February 21, meet at 11:30 AM
> East 7th Street and Avenue B
> Bring a potted plant if possible, or flowers and candles, but most of all:
> Bring yourself and everyone you know to this MASSIVE SHOWING,
> press conference, and participatory event, to support the reclamation
> of Esperanza Community Garden, bulldozed illegally last Tuesday
> by the City Administration and developer Donald Capoccia.
> At this gathering, we will joyously celebrate the 22 years of beauty
> and hope brought to our city by Alicia Torres and the gardeners at
> El Jardin de la Esperanza. We will expose the corruption behind its
> destruction, from illegal campaign contributions from Capoccia to
> Giuliani, to a subversion of the legal process during the day of
> bulldozing.
> We will expose the lies of Giuliani's "low-income" housing, showing
> the media both Capoccia-style luxury housing and our style of truly
> sustainable, permanent low-income housing. We will visit one of the
> truly vacant lots that proliferate in New York City to expose the lie that
> they "need" gardens for housing development. We will take the first steps
> in RECLAIMING the Esperanza community garden.
> Monday is a day of hope for the City of New York, for Esperanza,
> for all community gardens, and for us all.
> Come with hope and love.
> This MONDAY, February 21, meet at 11:30 AM
> East 7th street and Avenue B
