Today – July 2nd! “Push Back Picnic” Union Square Park


PUSH BACK PICNIC ! Union Square Park, Northern end, 6 p.m.

Meet by Abe Lincoln Statue

Event to Push back the Business Improvement District which is exhibiting its influence further and further into the Park. The result? Increased privatization and reduction of our public space. All with the ‘approval’ of the New York City Parks Department.

From Union Square Not for Sale/Union Square Community Improvement District:

As the nation prepares to celebrate it’s 232nd Birthday, and the Union Square BID (Business Improvement District) prepares to privatize the LANDMARKED Pavilion, come join the Community Improvement District (CID), along with your favorite radical heroes of Union Square for a radical auction action and more. Make a bid on your favorite national chain store franchise * Dance circles around stodgy, stogie-smoking, sell-out politicians * Marvel as the park pushes back against the greedy takeover artists *

Let’s push back the privatizers and keep Union Square a place for public gatherings, public rallies, and public play.
