CAP’s First Action A Big Success!

February 7, 2011

On a cold, rainy afternoon this past Saturday, a group of 14 CAPers braved the weather to stand in solidarity with a tenant declaring rent strike. After months of trying to get his landlord to make repairs to his Bed-Stuy apartment, including fixing potentially life-threatening electrical problems, tenant Mark came across a CAP flyer, and decided to give us a call.  Mark had already decided to go on rent strike, and was asking for support.

So, after crafting a letter listing 8 major repairs that needed to be made within a month by a licensed contractor, Mark and the rest of the CAP crew marched over to the landlord’s house to hand-deliver it.  At first it was just Mark there:

Then, out of nowhere, the slumlord was surrounded!!

When asked if the repairs would be done within a month, or if Mark would have more problems, the slumlord merely replied ‘nope, no more problems.’

That’s right landlord, YOU JUST GOT CAP’D!!
