IMG_2787Despite the driving rain, the NYC street vendor community staged a show of force at City Hall yesterday, one week before election day. Council Member Barron spoke forcefully in support of the group, who then marched to police headquarters, where the chief of community affairs addressed the crowd, promising to bring our message back to his bosses. Cityroom covered the day's activities here. Will it keep Bloomberg from getting re-elected? Who knows. But unlike President Obama, we are making an effort. Thanks to our friends at Esperanza del Barrio and Vamos Unidos for the strong turn-out. Photos here.
