Bus Riders Union: 'Save the Ronstadt Center'

Posted By on Mon, Oct 22, 2012 at 9:00 AM

On Monday, Oct. 22, the Bus Riders Union will meet at 4 p.m. at the Ronstadt Transit Center (at Sixth Avenue and Congress Street) to discuss "the possible destruction or downsizing of the Ronstadt Center due to downtown developers' desire to squeeze profits out of this prized downtown piece of land."

From the press release:

The Bus Riders Union feels that poor people, in this case bus riders, should not be forced out of downtown. Like City Council Member Regina Romero said in her first campaign: “It should be a downtown for everyone.”

A PLAN TO BEGIN TO FIGHT THIS CLEANSING OF THE DOWNTOWN BY MONEYED INTERESTS WILL BE UNVEILED.
JOIN US !

City Council Member Karin Uhlich will join the Bus Riders Union for this event.


Coffee, Cookies, and DONUTS will be SERVED!
