NYPD Tries to Shush Donut Social Protest in East Village
Those self-described downtown “slacktivists” who previously called for yuppie scum to die at the Bowery Wine Company are focusing their contempt on the NYPD. They’re planning a punk concert and protest Friday night against “police brutality, real estate developers, and the blatant selectively targeted harassment/discrimination toward our scene during the 20th Anniversary of the Tompkins Square Park Police Riots concert/political rally.” The so-called “Donut Social” was originally planned for directly outside the 9th precinct on East 5th Street, but the NYPD wasn’t so into that, so the rabble have been relocated to the corner of First Ave and 5th. The other hitch is that police are insisting on a 70 decibel sound level at 100 feet with the permit. According to NMNL, that’s about the same level as the sound of a vacuum cleaner at 10 feet.
