Re: “Zoo Wants Trams Through Old Forest

I'm a zoo member and I didn't get the note. I'm also a greensward supporter and would have dismissed it, but they didn't know that. How could they know that? Do they drive by our houses looking for yard signs? Do they look to see who is wearing a greensward t-shirt? You can bet I will be sporting my Save The Greensward t-shirt everywhere!! 😊

Re: “VIDEO: Greensward Protest Peaceful Along Zoo Wall

Brunetto,
Many of us LOVE to see and hear us referred to as "upper middle class". I wish I was! I would refer to myself as lower middle class, most of the protesters are middle class, and some are upper middle class. But please, keep on calling all of us upper middle class. It makes us feel good! 😀 At least you weren't foolish enough to refer to all of us as being white.

"Just an empty field" I will not go into. Educate yourself on the meaning of green space in an urban area and the effect this has on "warfare" taking place within a city.

Re: “Greensward Protest Caused 'Almost Irreparable Harm'

Why would anyone complain about walking "blocks and blocks" to get to the zoo when they came to the zoo to walk blocks and blocks around the zoo? None of the greensward protesters yelled at, harassed, or made the zoo visitors feel bad about parking on the greensward. The protesters understand that the majority of the visitors have no idea what is going on with the greensward parking situation, and they are only doing as they are directed. The protestors are, however, taking $5/vehicle out of the zoo's pocket by offering zoo visitors a free parking alternative. This seems to have struck a raw nerve.
