Harlem Rally: Christine Quinn Must Go!

At a weekend rally to oppose the pending rezoning of 125th Street, demonstrators broke into a chant of "Christine Quinn Must Go":

"Charles' Barron, a City Councilman from Brooklyn, took the podium and led a chant of 'Harlem is not for Sale.'

"Mr. Barron cited the political tumult in Zimbabwe, and then talked about the influence that local Councilwoman Inez Dickens could have on the City Council's final vote on the rezoning, which is expected this week.

"'If the local councilmember says no,' Mr. Barron said, 'the City Council will say no. If the local council member says yes, the rest will say yes. But Mayor Bloomberg and Christine Quinn have a way of making sure things go through.'

"Mr. Barron then led a cheer calling for the resignation of Ms. Quinn, the Council speaker.

"'Christine Quinn must go. Christine Quinn must go.'"
