Re: “Vendor in the Grass

CJ Mullins, there have been a few Greensward activists online that have expressed interest in expanding the voice of the Greensward movement to embrace other issues, potentially even using the Greensward itself as a platform. (I think I saw there is going to be a food drive this weekend?) To the extent that this is possible, I firmly support those efforts.

Re: “Vendor in the Grass

One clarification: the "misplaced priorities" argument doesn't assume that the activists are not spending their time on other social issues in addition to the park, which of course they are. It criticizes the fact that the collective energy of so many is being spent on this issue rather than others. The statement "But those activities don't often lend themselves to television coverage," could apply to the park as well were it not for the numbers of people demanding attention to it. That attention, drawn from the collective action of many, could be spent on greater social problems in the city.
