Ratner Free to Proceed With Demolition
The organizers at Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn are planning a protest for this upcoming Monday in reaction to a judge's ruling that allows Forest City Ratner to proceed with its demolition plans, refusing a group of 26 co-plaintiffs' request for a temporary restraining order. The protest will begin at 8 a.m. in front of 191 Flatbush Ave. between 5th Ave. and Dean St. The state lawsuit maintains that an environmental impact study of the project was flawed. An earlier lawsuit challenging the legality of the eminent domain procedure has thus far failed to stop the Atlantic Yards project.
