On Sunday, August 9, get ready to Occupy the Inlet! Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park have announced a plan to fill the inlet with kayaks while simultaneously flooding the land perimeter of the proposed park with people, protest art & kites, providing a powerful image of the full 28 acres promised, but not delivered, by the City of New York.
Kent Ave & North 14th St
If you want to kayak, contact Charlotte Andaloro from TGC. If there is interest in being part of the land protest, a group from TGC will leave immediately after church; email Sarah Elkin for details. The event organizers are also looking for video and photography for the event, so if you can help, email Sarah.
Additionally, there's an arts & crafts afternoon on Saturday, August 8, 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. If you would like to paint banners, and make flags and signs, meet at Bushwick Inlet Park community center, Kent Ave & North 9th Street.
