Critics of Barclays Center plan to "protest and disrupt" next Thursday's ground breaking and if nothing else works, some plan a campaign of civil disobedience to make things "as ugly and as difficult as possible" when the eviction notices arrive. The ESDC holds title to all the properties in the Atlantic Yards footprint but now must take possession, a process that could take weeks to months. Meanwhile, police are investigating a suspicious white powder sent to the Brooklyn judge who earlier in the week approved condemnation of the remaining properties in the Barclays Center footprint.
