Time for Action: 'Occupy the Inlet' in Bushwick this Sunday

This Sunday, August 9th between 12:30 and 2pm, Occupy the Inlet plans to clog Bushwick Inlet’s waters with as many boats and kayaks as possible.

"We invite all the NYC area board clubs to join us in kayaks, canoes, outriggers, SUPs and rowing gigs and raft together to fill the remarkably calm and tranquil embayment on the Brooklyn side of the East River.

On land, we will be encircling with caution tape, art bombing and flying protest kites over the 28 acres of land promised by the City as a park in 2005 and now threatened by imminent sale to developers. Let’s inundate our park with boats, people and art!"

"The goal is to put the screws on City Hall to fulfill its promised 28 acre waterfront park before it’s turned into more luxury residential developments," reports Greenpointers.

“The park is being held hostage from us,” Steve Chesler, a local activist, told Greenpointers. “We’re getting angrier. Our base has been growing. We’re not going to relent until the administration starts talking about it and engaging our reps in the community.”
