Queens Under Attack

Sunday, August 26th, Queens Anti-Gentrification Project will be hosting an event titled Defend Queens – Now or Never.

The event will include a discussion and update on the multiple mega-developments threatening Western Queens and the rest of the borough. These developments include the LIC Core Rezoning (currently on hold), the LIC Tech Hub, LIC BID, Sunnyside Yard Development, and the BQX.

In a predictable development, a recent article quoted Queens Borough President, Melinda Katz, stating her support for the LIC Tech Hub.

Last month, we saw a sign of how bad things are getting when a top politician called for a freeze on new building permits in LIC and, in the same article, confirmed that the LIC Core Rezoning was on hold. These half-measures by politicians, though, are not enough – we need to build power through independent neighborhood-based organizations.

In the wake of the Inwood Rezoning, its clear that the city is never going to listen to the concerns of community members. That’s why we hope to see you this Sunday so we can continue to develop strategy for defeating  these developers and their sell-out politicians.

Join Us for Our Summer Party – Sunday August 12th

 

To all of our neighbors – We would like to invite you to join us for a summer Anti-Gentrification party! Let’s grab some drinks and/or food (non-drinkers are welcome!) and talk with neighbors about defending Queens and NYC from luxury real estate and corporate development!

QAGP is not a representative type of organization, or a funded nonprofit. Rather, we are a group of neighbors, fighting for ourselves and for each other, on our own time. We strongly encourage you to attend, chill, and consider joining us. If not, your general support is welcome!

We look forward to seeing y’all.
