Has the Extell construction affected your health or your apartment? Worried about being displaced?
Tired of Margaret Chin colluding with developers to destroy our neighborhood?

Instead of protecting Chinatown and the Lower East Side, Council Member Margaret Chin has colluded with developers, Sheldon Silver and Mayor de Blasio to destroy our homes and community. Because Chin is blocking the community-led Chinatown Working Group Rezoning Plan which would put height limits on new developments, luxury condos like Extell and the JDS tower will be built everywhere in our community.

Chin uses ploys like public hearings, task forces, a Chinatown-only rezoning plan to divide us and promote racism. She held two meetings about the EIS process on the waterfront–all a phony show right before the elections. She is pushing a rezoning plan for a tiny part of Chinatown that excludes Latinos and African-Americans and the waterfront from protection. Her plan pits Chinese, Blacks and Latinos against one another, and benefits luxury developers. Also, Chin and de Blasio are working to privatize and sell NYCHA off to developers and banks, encouraging private, luxury development on the property of La Guardia and Smith.

The community’s CWG Plan that Chin rejects would protect Chinatown & the Lower East Side from displacement, putting height caps on new developments and requiring that any housing built on NYCHA land be 100% low-income.

Let’s protest at Margaret Chin’s office and demand that she step down now!
