POCcupy Endorses “Occupy the Boiler Room”
Full consensus was made on 11/06/11 to endorse
Occupy Harlem and Community Mayor, Queen Mother Dr. Delois Blakely have called for a full-time occupation of the boiler room of 477 West 142nd Street (buzz Suite 2). Predatory lenders are trying to gentrify the building by freezing out long-time residents of the Sugar Hill neighborhood of Harlem. For months residents have not had heat/hot water and now as winter approaches, the situation is becoming dire. Michael Booth has already been arrested for standing in solidarity. Food, supplies and occupiers are needed NOW!
