Let Them Eat (Stinky) Cheese!

On Thursday, September 24th, 2009, members of Times Up! orchestrated a bike ride and “Funky Protest Cheese Party” at Union Square to protest the privatization and transformation of the park’s Pavilion into a private upscale restaurant, a plan proposed by Danny Meyer and the Union Square Partnership. Through funky dance, protestors interrupted the annual private “dinner” for supporters of the privatization of the Pavilion, a place that is considered a birthplace of the Labor Movement and a historically important site for Free Speech: it’s an idea that stinks!
