After originating at Zuccotti Park, the Occupy Wall Street protests have spread throughout the nation, hitting cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, Oakland, et al. Additional movements popped up in New York City, and Occupy Brooklyn has hit Atlantic Yards in protest.
Famed protester Daniel Goldstein, known best for heading Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn until reaching a settlement with Bruce Ratner worth roughly $3 million, was on hand to protest, stating that “There is no greater monument to crony capitalism in all of Brooklyn than the Atlantic Yards Project.”
According to the terms of Goldstein’s $3 million settlement, he “cannot actively oppose the project.” Oops. While I’m not sure if this qualifies as “actively opposing” under the specific language in the settlement, it’s safe to say this isn’t exactly “actively promoting.”
