No Amazon Headquarters in Queens: Tell Gov. Cuomo “No Deal!”

Saturday, Jan 26, 2018

12:00pm - 2:00pm

outside 21 St - Queensbridge train station

Join us, fellow members of Hate Free Zone and our allies in Queens in standing against the construction of Amazon’s headquarters in Long Island City.

Governor Cuomo and Mayor De Blasio are trying to bypass community consent and offer 1 to 3 billion of our tax dollars to the trillion dollar company Amazon so they can construct their headquarters in Queens. Amazon is an anti-immigrant and anti-worker corporation and their presence will surely increase our rent and displace us from the community! Those billions of tax dollars should be spent on improving the services we need, like public transportation and housing. Let's show him we will not accept Amazon in Queens! 

Join us in holding our elected officials accountable and defending our community!
