Images From A Demonstration


While the city council met inside demonstrators rallied outside at the city hall entrance Thursday evening to voice their concerns of how the DRI (Downtown Revitalization Initiative) grant was going to be spent.  One major point: it was impractical to convert the Durkee Street parking lot to have residential housing while displacing parking spaces, trying to recreate those spaces elsewhere.  The demonstrators plan to rally every Thursday evening when the city council is in session.

Protest prep.

Plenty of media coverage: TV, radio and newspapers.
