[cg] [Fwd: Stop the Sale of NYC's Community Gardens!]
-- BEGIN included message
*** PLEASE SPREAD THIS NOTICE FAR AND WIDE ***
To the Email Army From firstname.lastname@example.org 3/31/99
It's official. The auction catalog is out: New York City plans to sell
114 community gardens to real-estate speculators at a two-day auction
May 13-14. Over the last 4 months there has been enormous public
outcry against this senseless and mean-spirited sale -- but the
administration of Rudy Giuliani wouldn't listen.
We are now asking every supporter of community gardens to MAKE A
PROTEST CALL to Deputy Mayor Joseph Lhota at 212-788-3137.
Leave a message expressing your shock and outrage -- demand that EVERY
GARDEN BE REMOVED FROM THE AUCTION. Be polite but firm (and help us
send flowers to the sure-to-be-harried receptionists by emailing your
pledge to email@example.com).
Also, start spreading the word about two garden protests/celebrations next
weekend, April 10-11:
Standing Our Ground
WHAT: a massive rally for Community Gardens.
WHEN: Sat., April 10, 11-3.
WHERE: Bryant Park, 42nd at 6th Ave, Manhattan.
Reclaim the Streets (The Garden Party)
WHAT: a street celebration in support of Community Gardens.
WHEN: Sun., April 11, 1:30 PM sharp!
WHERE: El Jardin del Paraiso, E. 5th Str. between Ave. C & D.
