Atlantic Yards rally
Today's Atlantic Yards rallying cry was 'TIME OUT' on the Yards project, but the unions and contractors outwitted the protesters by showing up en masse to stage their own rally. Separated from each other by a phalanx of NYPD officers and a few strategically placed cars, the union members shouted slogans while whistling and pressing on air horns. Soon after, they walked counterclockwise around the footprint, going east on Pacific, north on Vanderbilt, west on Atlantic, south on 6th Avenue and then east on Pacific.
The cops were nearly caught unaware until they ran and cut them off at Carlton to prevent an ugly fracas.
Check out the pictures below - the anti-Atlantic-Yards protesters were definitely sparse in comparison to the union members.
