85 Bowery Hunger Strike Solidarity Rally

  • City Hall Corner of Broadway and Murray St. New York, NY (map)

The tenants of 85 Bowery have been kept from their homes for months by slumlord Joseph Betesh and the city agencies that carried out their wrongful eviction. In light of the de Blasio administration’s utter failure to act here and in similar cases across the city, the tenants are resuming the hunger strike they suspended in February and bringing it to the Mayor's doorstep.

On May 30, please join the tenants at City Hall as they demand a guaranteed date by which they can return home, an end to de Blasio’s pro-developer displacement agenda, and the immediate adoption of community-led rezoning plans to stop these endless cycles of displacement.
