March for Bowery Tenants

  • City Hall Park Broadway and Murray Street New York, NY (map)

As their hunger strike continues, please join a march around city hall to support the tenants of #85Bowery, and help them 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.

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. For more background on the tenants’ struggle, please see:
