In protest to the city's newly revised plan which shrinks the amusement core even further in order to place the kind of 'entertainment' that belongs to retail etablishments, this year's Mermaid Parade Queen Savitri D will go on a hunger strike. The will be begin her fast during the Mermaid Parade and go without eating until the scoping meeting on June 24th at 6pm.
There will aslo be a live webcam feed which will start Sunday, June 22nd where Savitri D can be montired during here strike.
And so it is our freaky-monarchical DUTY to use this power to SAVE Coney Island from the gentrifying apocalypse of RETAIL ENTERTAINMENT HELL!
