Protesters Try to Spoil Espada's Fancy Luncheon


Protesters and tenants rights groups followed Bronx Senator Pedro Espada Jr. to a speaking engagement today at the plush Water Club Restaurant on the Hudson. They are calling on Espada to support legislation which passed in the Senate last month and would extend the Mitchell-Lama and Section 8 rent-stabilization protections as well as repeal "vacancy decontrol" which allows landlords to increase their rent at market prices.
