10,000 Expected at Brooklyn Protest Sunday

Organizers believe 10,000 Brooklynites will gather at Grand Army Plaza on Sunday afternoon to protest Bruce Ratner's plan for a new Nets arena and surrounding Atlantic Yards development. The group, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, has secured the services of tot rocker Dan Zanes and a troupe of acrobats, activists, beat-boxers and actors to entertain at the event. It's all part of an increasingly organized protest movement that now includes politicans.
