Video: MORE, Change the Stakes protest at Park Ave Cuomo Fundraiser, Follow up at Cipriani on Monday?



It was a cold, rainy Tuesday evening, but we had a blast. Reminds me of the old GEM days of street theater. The takeaway: teachers make too much money if they can afford to wear fancy mink.

CUOMO TO HEADLINE SUCCESS ACADEMY BENEFIT—Capital’s Eliza Shapiro: Governor Andrew Cuomo will be the keynote speaker at Success Academy's annual spring benefit this April, according to an invite sent to Success employees this weekend. Cuomo and Success C.E.O. Eva Moskowitz officially became allies last winter, when Cuomo stepped into a battle between Moskowitz and Mayor Bill de Blasio, declaring he would ‘save charter schools’ at a massive Albany rally partially organized by Success. The event will be held April 20 at Cipriani 42nd Street in Manhattan, and will be co-chaired by Success board members Campbell Brown, Daniel Loeb, Joel Greenblatt, and Regina and John Scully. http://bit.ly/1tT6Edx

NY Teacher has a suggestion:

Don't forget, Cuomo was scheduled to speak at the Success Academy Charter Schools Spring Benefit on April 20th; 6:30 pm at Cipriani (42nd St). If he does attend it would be a great place to demo/rally/press.

    1. Some of their connected astro-turf groups are organizing a protest Monday at 6PM. They are keeping their fingerprints off this - and I would bet that if they went full blast there is such hatred of Eva and Cuomo they would get a massive crowd instead of a token group. A crowd that could disrupt the entire procedings. But they are so scared of bad press.
