Weekend protests and weekend service changes

By · Published in 2008

It’s always fun when the weekends roll around. In one corner, we have a protest.

Concerned citizens are gathering this Sunday to protest the MTA Police’s recent harassment of woman taking pictures at the Atlantic Yards. (I wrote about that one earlier this week.)
