Program 29 - Shorts Program: Last Call Lenny, Punk Rock Politics, Bullies, Stream of Doubts, and Skywriters

  • Empire State College 325 Hudson Street New York, NY, 10013 United States

Bullies - This fascinating and disturbing animation from the Corporate Campaign veterans, who fought hard to let the world know about the nasty anti-labor practices of Coca-Cola, tells the story of the Real Estate Board of NY and how they manipulate the high rents in the city, as well as siphon tax credits meant for affordable housing into other uses and not more affordable apartments. The film also claims that the REBNY has been instrumental in the explosion of non-union building and construction, much of which has led to unnecessary construction worker deaths due to negligence and lack of safety standards on a union job.
