Do We Really Need such a Grandiose Erection?
Is this really any path of progress towards racial or economic justice? Or is it a payoff on the road towards an endless culture of spectacle tucked within a newly commercialized space that will overwhelm the entire area and define Miami's future? This may well be become another sad moment when people speaking out could make a difference.
Who spoke out before I-95 came roaring though and devastated Overtown?
And this deal was just announced in the press on Friday. It's an insult to any kind of a democratic or thoughtful process. But perhaps typical of Miami. No one is against enhanced economic activity but this is not the way towards a better future.
Call the City of Miami Commission and say no.
Commissioners will meet (Monday) at 5 pm at Camillus House. Be there! If you can't here is a link to voice your opinion.
Genius: Commissioner Keon Hardemon is your sister or any family member involved with lobbying for this structure or involved in any way? If so you must recuse yourself because it is the right thing to do. Make your community proud don't sell it out. Why is this district always a sell out? Do you want to displace all your friends with gentrification or improve their life? What's it going to be? Be a lawyer but be a good guy...
