City Council Makes Late Night Vote -- And Bloombergville Was There

The advantage of having people on the street at all times means that they can show up at a moment's notice when politicians decide to make late night deals.

"Last night at 9pm, Bloombergville learned City Council was meeting to make last moment deals on the budget at their offices at 250 Broadway, half a block from the encampment. Postponing the General Assembly, about 2 dozen members of Bloombergville gathered banners and posters and drums and set off immediately to protest."

Thank you for covering Bloombergville and helping to spread the word! That was an intense night, with Bloombergville residents pushing past the police to storm the steps of Tweed. Bloomberg and the City Council will continue to make backroom deals, and we will continue to make sure they hear us on the streets!
