As protest approaches June 10, another protest will be planned for the arena opening

Atlantic Yards Report

DDDB reports on "a church organized demonstration near the arena site June 10th and a June 19th planning/brainstorming meeting to kick off organizing for a demonstration at the arena opening."

Both involve Brown Memorial Baptist Church in Clinton Hill, which is stepping up its role in the Atlantic Yards fight. The rally June 10 is at 3 pm, at the corner of Atlantic and South Portland. (Here's my preview.)

On June 19 at 7 pm, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, BrooklynSpeaks, the Brown (Memorial Baptist Church) Community Development Corporation and "Occupy" are holding a kickoff meeting to organize a protest for September 28, when the arena opens.

The meeting's being held at Brown Memorial Baptist Church, 484 Washington Avenue [map].
