Dozens of Fort Greene residents, as well as a kindergarten of children, demonstrated yesterday, outside the office of Lurie Cumbo, City Council Member, to stop the destruction of 71 trees in Fort Greene Park.
Sandy Reiburn, a resident of Fort Greene and a major leader in the group, explained how the residents had to file a lawsuit to get information from the Parks Department.
It is a steadfast message that this station broadcasts daily, that communities MUST be in control of their neighborhoods. We must not surrender our rights to community control. Please support Fort Greene's efforts in saving their trees.
