Mayor de Blasio, “gentrifier-in-chief,” has designated NYC a “sanctuary city” in an effort to protect immigrants from racist and xenophobic Trump Executive Orders. For many NYC immigrants, however, our communities are under siege as we live in the instability and crisis as a result of the Mayor’s own rezoning policy that is displacing us from the very places that we seek refuge.
On Thursday outside City Hall while Trump pushes people out of the border, de Blasio pushes people out of their homes and neighborhoods to benefit his political aspirations and ultra-rich developers. They are two sides of the same coin: both destroy immigrant families and communities of color. We say no more to racism and displacement!
Join us to demand Mayor de Blasio step down!
1) End racism in city planning. Pass community-based “People First” plans like the Chinatown Working Group rezoning plan.
2) End public funding for luxury development, such as 421-a. Instead; use public resources to preserve and build more permanent low-income housing.
3) Stop privatization of public land and assets.
4) Mayor de Blasio and those in City Council who also collude with developers, step down.
