Description: 

 Jay-Z may be playing Barclays Center on September 28, but an arena alone nets nothing for Brooklyn.

BrooklynSpeaks, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, the Brown Community Development Corporation and "Occupy" groups invite you to join with us in organizing a demonstration at the Barclays Center opening to protest the failure of Atlantic Yards to live up to its promises of public benefits, and the refusal of State and City administrations to take effective action.

Brooklyn hasn’t forgotten how much has been sacrificed for a project that has become a symbol of crony capitalism. When the arena opens, we’re going to remind the press, the legislature, the Governor and the Mayor. Your help will make it a day to remember.

General public
