STAND BY US (Video)Posted: June 17, 2011
Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed budgets cuts threaten schools, hospitals, fire stations and thousands of workers’ jobs.
After already deep cuts in previous years that left hospitals underfunded, closed schools, eliminated bus lines, cut subway service and reduced other public services, like sanitation and rat control, New York can’t take much more. New cuts will leave the city sicker, poorer, and less safe.
Since Tuesday residents of Bloombergville have camped out, marched and rallied in and around City Hall Park to protest the planned cuts and stop the budget.
“Stand By Us,” a video by Messiah Rhodes, shows some of the highlights and captures the spirit of Bloombergville’s first few days.

All New Yorkers who are willing and able, come join us we will be here day and night. Sleep Out, Speak Up and Fight Back Against Budget Cuts!
