    Share this: DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN —  Dozens of tenant advocates and elected officials rallied outside of the Kings County Housing Court on Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn Friday to call out the Office of Court Administration for allegedly denying Brooklynites legal representation, despite it being guaranteed under the Right to Counsel law. Beverly Rivers, a leader in the Flatbush Tenant Coalition, called the rally necessary so she and other could defend their homes. Organizers said that the Right to Counsel law has helped them fight common problems such as living with rats, leaks and other dangerous conditions in their apartments. The city’s Right to Counsel Law went into effect in 2017 and provides anyone under 200 percent of the federal poverty line with a guaranteed attorney. However, many tenant advocates claim the law is not working the way it was intended to and indigent Brooklynites are often left representing themselves in court.

Alinejad was targeted in an alleged kidnapping plot last year by Iranian nationals after speaking out against the Iranian regime.

    In a new interview, Brooklyn's bling bishop, Lamor Miller Whitehead, claims he negotiated the surrender of alleged subway shooter Andrew Abdullah to 'his mentor' Mayor Eric Adams, but the plan fell apart when city marshals 'bum-rushed' the suspect outside his lawyer's office. Police arrested Abdullah, 26, on Tuesday when he arrived at the Downtown office of the Legal Aide Society. Abdullah is accused of the unprovoked subway shooting of Daniel Enriquez, 44, a Goldman Sachs researcher, as the train crossed the East River into Manhattan on Sunday.  The Fendi-wearing pastor, founder of the Leaders of the Tomorrow International Church in Canarsie, previously said that he was 'hurt' that police denied Abdullah his 'integrity' by not allowing him to turn himself in directly to Mayor Adams.

    Hundreds of New Yorkers took to the streets this weekend to protest against the possibility the Supreme Court may be ready to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and end the nationwide right to legal abortion. The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Democratic Club held an abortion-rights rally on Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn. Protesters consisting of mothers and daughters gathered outside the Joralemon Street municipal building named after the former Supreme Court Justice.  The Supreme Court draft decision has sparked waves since Politico first released it last Monday night, with Chief Justice John Roberts confirming its authenticity the following day. In the opinion, Alito writes: 'Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.  'It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people's elected representatives.' The wording may change in the final decision, the Post notes, as justices will have had time to offer critiques, dissents and revisions before it is formally announced in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case in July. In the case,...

    Dozens of demonstrators last night blocked roads outside New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's Brooklyn home after he unveiled plans to impose a vaccine mandate on employees at all private businesses.  Protesters chanted 'no vaccine mandates' and 'my body, my choice' as they blocked traffic, including a garbage truck, outside the New York City address.  De Blasio issued the new Covid-19 vaccine mandate on Monday and ordered that children aged 5-11 be included in the rule that forces restaurants, movie theaters and other public spaces to ask for proof of vaccination before entry. It remains unclear how de Blasio plans to enforce the draconian measures - the first in the nation - and whether his successor, Eric Adams, who takes over on January 1, will maintain the policy.  Protesters last night demanded: 'Save our children' and 'We say no, we say no!' while another held a sign reading 'Wake up New York.
