A note from Cooper Sq. Committee: Michael Moore at book signing tomorrow St. Marks -- see details down below....
From Suzannah B. Troy Artist
Dear Michael Moore: Would love to chat about Bloomberg SAIC CityTime ECTP Northrup Grumman and the BIGGEST White Collar Crimes ever NYC gov....and all under Bloomberg with the help of his mini-me Christine Quinn who wants to be mayor next and Wall St. is donating it’s bail-out money big time to her campaign....
Michael I want to talk to you but how Cooper Union, NYU jr. is destroying and displacing communities like Columbia U. abusing eminent domain to move an entire neighborhood called Manhattanville but I will be celebrating the Jewish New Year.
Maybe you can further shame NYU jr. aka Cooper Union from not evicting St. Marks Bookstore which can’t afford to be on St. Mark’s anymore or any where in the E. Village because of Cooper Union, NYU, NYU mega-dormed the E. Village to death, NY Law has a mega dorm next to the Hells Angels and SVA all confusing the community with dorm fodder and they use their not for profit status as a tax shelter and bust thru zoning using the term “community facility”but they exclude the facility. I demand community outreach centers in every University “community facility” so Michael Moore shame Cooper Union.
Cooper Union has this “neogtiating with terrorists” but for some reason Cooper Union did not included themselves as terrorists and NYU as well as Columbia U. in this EVENT.
Below the email from Cooper Square Committe and FYI here is one example how Fran and Joyce a true heres .....http://www.youtube.com/user/Suzannahartist#p/u/20/BrXEcjUzN8I Jason tells us how he is fighting cancer. Without Joyce and the work she does he and his Mom could have been homeless living in a shelter after the mass eviction at 47 East 3rd St.
Jason’s positive attitude is heroic and he has beaten the cancer and having a home may have helped as much as being a victim of mass eviction must have hurt.
We at the Cooper Square Committee want to thank you for signing the St Mark's Bookshop Petition.
We have an unexpected update: Michael Moore will be at the bookstore tomorrow, Thursday at 7 pm to sign his new exciting book "Here Comes Trouble."
Yesterday the Public Affairs Office at Cooper Union, the St. Mark's Bookshop's landlord, sent out a letter saying Cooper Union's Board was asking its Finance and Business Affairs Committee to examine the request to lower the bookstore's rent from its current $20,000 a month. The outcome will be announced at the end of October.
We believe that Cooper Union is stonewalling this issue, hoping our community will forget about the bookstore. We need you to send this petition out to all of your friends and family today. Help us reach 50,000 signatures by the middle of October.
Frances Goldin, a founder of the Cooper Square Committee, and
Joyce Ravitz, Chairperson
p.s. Michael -- it is Suzannah -- can we talk about the Haggerty Trial how Bloomberg is doing to the justice system what he did to democracy when he and his mini-me Christine Quinn denied us a referendum.
