URGENT bypass alert - vigil 5pm today

The Old Bodega on the corner of Able Smith and Willis St is being demolished TODAY - in whole or in part. There will be a peaceful vigil from 5pm on Willis St and Able Smith St TODAY Thursday 10 February. Please come and bring your friends - bring ribbons, candles, stories, poems and whatever else you feel is appropriate. Large numbers of buildings have already been demolished on Willis St and Arthur St, including at least one building that was supposed to be "saved", ie relocated. Many people feel powerless, angry and frustrated by the "bypass" - come and show those doing this work that people care and have not forgotten. ************************** ADVANCE NOTICE A "Tangi for Te Aro" is being planned for Sunday 20th February at 12 noon. More details next week. **************************

Oh no the bodega is gone, thats sad.

If it were me I would have taken tables and chairs done there an reopned the outdoor area on the doorstep.

Then when the demolition people arrive they see you drinking in the sun and feel like finishing too :)
