Fw: [CSH - News | 98] VIDEO: Immigrants Takeover Mark-Viverito's Office | Movement for Justice in El Barrio


  1. How many Residents of Central and West Harlem would have the "strength of heart" to "bring it" to our Political Representatives like the "Movement for Justice in El Barrio" brought it to NYC Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito?
  2. If we did an action like this?  Would the Political Representatives of Central and West Harlem have had the participants arrested?
What do you think? Look at the Video.

We would like to share with you a new video on our recent action 
against Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito.

In this short video, immigrant women and other low-income residents 
from El Barrio storm and occupy the offices of Council Member Melissa 
Mark-Viverito to protest her ongoing promotion of  displacement and 
negligent landlords in our community. In the face of police presence 
and hostility from office personnel, these luchadoras fearlessly speak 
truth to power and denounce Mark-Viverito for her profoundly anti-
democratic attacks against her East Harlem constituents, our homes and 

Please circulate widely.
