This Saturday, our 6 month anniversary celebrations were disrupted by the brutal St. Patrick’s Day raid conducted on behalf of the 1% by Mayor Bloomberg?s ?private army?. The response from our community has been stunning, and this Saturday’s #LetFreedomSpring march starting 12pm at Liberty Square will illustrate once again how you can’t evict an idea whose time has come.
