A message from Rebecca Scott: Marcus Garvey Park /
Attempting to Silence the Drums in Harlem

Here's an update on this situation: Boro Comm. Castro had
a second
meeting with the Marcus Garvey Park drummers on Friday,
July 13 at 5
pm at Marcus Garvey Park, along with the Marcus Garvey Park
Alliance.
At this meeting, Comm. Castro and Mr. Green, a contact
person for the
drummers, along with other drummers, announced that they
picked a site
within the park to be designated a drumming site. Comm.
Castro said
that benches would be installed in the site (near the
acropolis and
the amphitheater) today, Saturday July 14. This is now an
officially
sanctioned area for drumming, like the drumming circle in
Central
Park. Drummers have the right to drum there on their
regular day and
time and can't be removed. If there is a program at the
amphitheater,
the drummers can also move location. Park Enforcement
Patrol have
been instructed to monitor the area only to protect the
drummers, not
to remove them.

If you have more questions about this, from the drummers'
perspective, I can give you a few contacts for the
drummers. Feel
free to email me for that contact information.

Previously stated by Johnnie Stevens:

For immediate release
Marcus Garvey Park Drummers,
July 2 2007

Sat June 30 two white police officers approached drummers
at 5th Ave
Marcus Garvey park, at about 7:30pm, stating that they
received
complaints about the drumming being to loud.

Two spokespeople, a man and woman, from the drummers
organization
told the officers, "We have been drumming every week until
nine p.m.
for the last thirty years ", They asked the officers why
were they
coming now when it was only 7:30pm. The officers responded
that the
residents at 2005 5th Ave (across the street) had
complained that the
drumming was too loud. The drummers said "We will continue
until 9
pm".

The policemen then called for reinforcement, when a car
with a bar
officer came , the drummers spokesperson continued along
the lines of
their right to drum, "it's our culture from Africa and
the
Caribbean" One women drummer said about the white
residents. "They
have forced Black people out of Harlem to move here, they
knew that
we drum here every week, if they don't want to hear the
drumming they
should move"

Still another police car came, this time with lights, and
about nine
policemen. With the drummers, women, children and men
around eighty
people, the drummers resisted their position and continued
to drum,
while an assigned spokesperson talked to police offers.

Across the street at Fifth Ave condo (124) the four white
residents
watched while the struggle continued. The drummers, dancers
and crowd
took out their cellphones and video cameras recording.
After 25
minutes the police backed down and the drummers drummed
louder as a
protest and message to the white residents that they will
fight for
their African culture.

Please join us next Saturday July 7th to help support the
Marcus
Garvey Park drummers in their struggle against the ongoing
police
harassment.
