Mike Bloomberg is a big patron of the arts so why the protest on this rainy day here in NYC?
Why are artists calling for king Mike to be dethroned?
Listen and watch my interview with artist Tony Chisholm.
Besides violating artists 1st Amendment Right....?
Because he wants to prevent artists from being vendors in Union Square and just in general he wants to sweep vendors off the street to make more room for developers, corporate advertising on city streets in creative ways but most of all king Mike and his greedy pals want to sweep New Yorkers out of NYC and he can't give them a one way ticket the way he gave homeless people so he has the NYPD ticket New Yorkers up to their eyeballs.
The vendors both artists, Veterans that served our Country and anyone who wants to make an honest living need now more than ever because despite what they report on Bloomberg News unemployment is rising and of those employed here in NYC how many are actually earning a living wage?
Check out this New York 1 interview with artists and Adrian Benepe.
