1. Tell Bloomberg what’s what (via Occupy Sandy)
At Noon TODAY FRIDAY 11/16, in front of City Hall, nurses, doctors, EMTs, and other healthcare professionals will go to the mayor to demand more coordinated action to rebuild our city’s healthcare infrastructure and care for the thousands of people hurting after Hurricane Sandy.
Volunteers in the field urgently need supplies and greater help from the federal and city government. These life-saving volunteers have told us themselves that they can’t fill the place of a real community health network, and are asking us to help get clinics, pharmacies and hospitals re-opened. We’re taking a list of those medical needs to Mayor Bloomberg to ask for the City’s help.
Brought to you by the organizers of “the Concert for New York City” (ie, Harvey Weinstein and Clear Channel), Madison Square Garden will host a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert on December 12. No headliners yet, but I’m pretty sure BrooklynVegan will have info first. More details here.
