Sleep Out, Speak Up and Fight Back against Budget Cuts!
They cut taxes for the rich—then slash public services because “there’s no money”!
Beginning Tuesday, June 14 at 7:00 pm
Centre Street between Chambers St. and Spruce St. (east side of City Hall) immediately after the DC 37 rally
Bloomberg’s budget is killing New York! To stop his teacher firings, firehouse closings, and cuts to libraries, daycare, CUNY and more, we’re going to be sleeping outside City Hall and protesting to make our voices heard for as long as it takes. Join us any time of the day or night. For updates on what we’re doing, follow us at:

Important note: Bloombergville will be a legal protest. Following a 2000 court case filed by Picture the Homeless, the city conceded that protesters have a First Amendment right to sleep on the street as part of a protest. Picture the Homeless will be leading our tactical team and making sure that the police respect our right to do so and that no arrests take place. They have done sleepouts many times before and no one has ever been arrested.
Make Big Banks and Millionaires Pay!
