Event Today At Noon! Save Coney Island "Call-in" Rally!

Pick up your fins and run to the park and phone to save Coney! WhetAdd Imageher in colorful Coney garb or not, you are invited to rush on down to Union Square Park in Manhattan this afternoon at 12 Noon for the Save Coney Island "Call-in" Rally.

Calling all Save Coney Islanders! Save Coney Island "Call-in" Rally!!

When: Tomorrow, Wednesday 15th at 12:00 pm.Where: South Side of Union Square, close to the big statue of George Washington on a horse


What: We're going to tell people about the City's Plan for Coney Island, and we're going to get them to make phone calls right then and there.

We'll have Save Coney sandwich boards for everyone who is not a mermaid or who does not have a Miss Cyclone sash. We will have materials explaining the City's Coney Island rezoning plan. We will have scripts to help the people making calls. And we'll have righteousness on our side.

Help us make this a rally to remember. Even if you can stop by for half an hour, please try to make it.
This is the last chance to make calls to fix the City's plan. Help us Save Coney Island!

Call for Volunteers
We still have plenty of brochures, fliers, and postcards describing the City's plan and asking people to make phone calls. We need volunteers to hand them out and drop them off. If you have time in the next few days, please contact:
volunteers@saveconeyisland.net.
