YOU are invited: Freddy's Bar Toast to George Will - And Barclays Bank
...From our Comrades at Freddy's Bar & Backroom
Freddy's is picking up the tab for a toast to George Will. Sunday, January 10
Toast to George Will
Bars and Pubs Boycott of Barclays Bank - our Response to the ESDC's threat
of Physical Force on behalf of Barclays and their business partners.
When: Sunday, January 10, 2pm.
Where: Freddy’s Bar & Backroom
485 Dean Street (corner of 6th Ave), Brooklyn, NY
George Will's scathing
column about government corruption in the Bruce Ratner’s Atlantic Yards Eminent
Domain Theft Case hit all the points: Using the the state to steal for politically
connected developers; Paying consultant AKRF to ﬁnd blight that only a paid consultant
could ﬁnd; And treating locals the way the British did in 1776. The staff and
patrons of Freddy's Bar would like to thank George Will for calling out the thieves
in over 450 publications, including the Washington Post. His article will be read
preceding the toast.
The Fightin' Freddy's will use this event to reply to a threat by the ESDC, published
in the Daily News last week, to use physical force against
patrons who elect to chain themselves to the bar on eviction day to prevent the
bar being taken for the Barclays Center stadium for the Nets basketball team.
On Monday morning we are going on the Fox News Network to request that the drinkers
of Great Britain consider joining our Boycott of Barclays Bank. Barclays Bank,
Bruce Ratner, and ACORN are using the ESDC to do their dirty work, and so we are
taking the fight to the source.
So come to the bar at 2pm on Sunday and we'll start our assault on Barclays Bank in style!
Freddys has launched a new
