Duffield on WBAI

Eric Williams did a 5 minute story on WBAI 6:00 news about the Duffield Abolitionist homes on Tuesday 10/16. The story played about 3 minutes into the program.

UPDATE: You can hear the program by clicking here (mp3). Other WBAI archived problems can be found here.

UPDATE 2: Here is a transcription of the verbal statement made by Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries opposing eminent domain both to build the Nets arena and to tear down the Duffield Street homes:
We now have a renewed opportunity given the hearing that is going to take place and the fact that the City has been forced as a result of the excellent advocacy by the councilwoman as well as the lawsuits that were filed by the able lawyers in this matter to go back to square one to renew our call at the highest level possible, to Spitzer and to ESDC, reiterating our position against the use of eminent domain, both to create a basketball arena as well as to tear down these homes connected to the Underground Railroad.
