Day 79 – The day began like the ones before it, chanting could be heard up and down the block. The usual chants like “Helen Sieger has to go”, “What do we want? Contract!” and my favorite “Where is Helen? Hiding in the Kitchen.” You would think after 79 days that I would be tired of hearing the chants, but it is just the opposite, if the street is quiet I am wondering what is going on. I guess you could say the chants are kind of addicting, I find myself singing them at the weirdest times.
The striking members had a Bridal Shower for one of the members that will be getting married in Jamaica. The party was on the strike line in the pen, but was still a wonderful time for all who attended.
We are still trying to find more information on the woman that died while working for the nursing home. It is strange that nobody can give us any information about her except that she has a room-mate that nobody can seem to reach. Why isn’t anyone else concerned about this? Could she have been an undocumented person that was living and working here in New York? We are still trying to get more information and when we do we will let you know.
We attended the community council meeting tonight at the 50th precinct just to see what else is going on in the neighborhood and also to confirm to Captain D’Adamo that we are happy with the way he has turned around the way the community has been treated by his command. While at the meeting an item of interest for our neighborhood was brought to our attention, please see our community residential burglary alert for more information.
Usually I have a bunch of photos to go along with my post, but for the last couple of days I have been very busy and was not able to devote the time needed to take all the usual photos. Never fear more photos will be coming soon.
Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
