I was wondering how this would go and glad to hear how it has. 

Ken Johnson, on the other hand, is an art reviewer for the New York Times so that’s about as boring and condescending as it gets.

One area the administration has been willing to spend money is in building affordable housing in the city. The New Housing Marketplace Plan, a multi-billion dollar investment, is expected to produce up to 140,000 housing units (the initial goal was 165,000). Small snag: many will only be affordable for upper-income people. A new report prepared by the Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development found that two thirds of the new spaces cost too much for most neighborhood residents. In half of the districts surveyed, the majority of units are too expensive for residents that make the neighborhood’s median income (the administration disputes their conclusions). “The typical Bronx household would have to make 1.5 times its income in order to be able to afford the majority of the affordable housing built in the Bronx,” they write. As Eric Jaffe points out in Atlantic Cities, “In general terms, the affordable housing plan did create low-income housing, but it was upper-low-income housing.”

This is NOT an anarchist banner. This is a fascist banner, being hung by organizers from the Golden Dawn neo-fascist party. They are violent, antisocial racists.(1) It is being hung at the Stathakion Cultural Center.
In Greece, while Golden Dawn does better and better in the polls, their offices are being repeatedly smashed(2). Now they’re looking to expand into the US(3). Time has shown that bastards like these can be pushed back against successfully using a three-pronged approach. First, their ideological agenda must be countered ideologically. Wherever they speak, an opposition voice must speak also, speaking firmly and honestly. Second, their physical agenda must be met physically. You are left to your own devices to infer what this means. Third, their affiliations and ties to support must be severed, so they are left to recover from said aggressions on their own, and without the aid of others.
This post is being made because we know of Stathakion Cultural Center in Astoria, NY as one of their first US alliances. We don’t know whether the leadership of the Cultural Center supports them ideologically, is ignorant, or most likely, a mixture of both. We do know that Golden Dawn held a food and clothing drive to ‘be distributed to Hellenes, and only to Hellenes’ at Stathakion. You can read about it here: http://xanyc.org/?p=1
This post is being made for two reasons: first, to inform you comrades in the NE that you have some nasty neighbors moving in, and you should be aware of that and take whatever measures are necessary to stay safe with these violent xenophobes on the loose. The second relates to the third prong of the plan to dismantled fascist organizations. Call Stathakion Cultural Center and tell them what violent ultra-right fanatics they’ve been hosting. Tell them how important it is to you that they don’t host them again. Ask them what they’re doing to prevent this group from unleashing the same kind of violent terror they’ve been responsible for in Athens. Their number is (718) 204-6500. Please call them and then reblog this.

Note: This post is informational only and in no way advocates violence or property destruction against fascist organizers. Such acts would be illegal and thus, inherently wrong, regardless of how little harm it caused and how much good it caused. One must never be tempted to stand up against racist terror using anything other than kind words.

One night, 20 officers surrounded a man outside the Brownsville Houses after he would not let an officer smell the contents of his orange juice container.

"A Few Blocks, 4 Years, 52,000 Police Stops"

This article is 2 years old, but it hasn’t gotten any better in Bloomberg’s New York especially when King Mike is so delusional he’s invoking Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr to defend the program. 52,000 stops over 4 years averages out to over 140 stops per day… and that’s just in about 8 blocks of Brownsville. So when someone tells you “America isn’t a Police State” remind them that that’s only true in select neighborhoods for select races…

Would you spar with Sifu Alex?
See Part 1 of the Animal Day photos on the City Wing Tsun facebook page.

Would I? yes. Have I? yes. My Sifu has Jiu Jitsu, Tae Kwan Do and of course Wing Tsun chops. He’s been in enough fights to more than know what he’s doing. Plus he knows everything we might pull and how to counter it. It’s basically the most beneficially educational nightmare you could ever have.
