Rally for jobs and horses

Yesterday, I attended a rally at City Hall for the Carriage Horse Industry.  Hundred of drivers, workers and their families were joined by Teamsters, other union members, New Yorkers and animal lovers to protest the Mayor’s introduction of a bill in the City Council to ban the horses by 2016.  It was a day of rallies at City Hall, rallies for and against the Carriage Horses, a “die-in” calling for a further inquiry into the death of Eric Garner. It is an important moment for the Mayor and Council to get their priorities straight
