For anyone who's familiar with Rebel Diaz, their community art space in the Bronx was raided by police and they have been evicted. There's a rally going on right now.

South Bronx community center Rebel Diaz Arts Collective (RDACBX) shut down by Federal marshals and NYPD. Rally to be held denouncing lockout and forced eviction.

March 1, 2013- After a violent daytime raid yesterday, Thursday, February 28, 2013, on the warehouse turned arts space at 478 Austin Place in the Bronx, members of Hip-Hop community center RDACBX are denouncing their forced eviction at a rally to be held at 6pm today in front of their locked out building.

The building landowner, local commercial developer Marc Pagostin of Austin Property Corp., had for months stalled negotiations on a new agreement with the RDACBX after the group's original lease expired this past November. Despite diverse support for RDACBX from local politicians, churches, and community organizations in the area, Austin Property Corp. eventually refused to renew the lease, citing concerns about the group's political murals, and prompting the surprise eviction yesterday.

"The violent actions taken yesterday are an attack on young people, artists, and Hip Hop culture," says RDACBX co-founder RodStarz. "In a time where budget cuts, stop and frisk, and gentrification are affecting our communities, it's a shame we are being treated like criminals. There is no justification for this eviction."

Karen Louviere, 19, a past participant in RDACBX youth programs, expressed her disappointment at the violent shutdown of the space. "They came in with armed officers into what is supposed to be a safe space for the community. A space that has served as an alternative for young people in the area, helping develop their talents in a positive way."

The internationally renowned RDACBX, host to weekly cultural performances and educational workshops, had recently announced plans for the creation of the Richie Perez Radical Library, as well as the continuation of their widely recognized Boogie Mics open mic series, and the SxSBX Hip-Hop Festival.

"Despite the violent removal of RDACBX from its space, RDACBX will continue to work on its development, as it strives to be a resource for the community. There is a need for this organization to exist in The South Bronx," says Claudia De La Cruz, a member of the collective.

Its amazing what people in power will do to stop people from being creative. Instead of thanking/congratulating them for bringing peace to the community they decide to eject them in a violent way. Is this the life we want children to grow up in?
  7:15pm Tall Paul:

Yo Bill, tuning in from the captial D the home country
  7:20pm Nate:

Erin go Bragh!
  7:21pm Lucy:

@Tall Paul, its the unscrupulous money hoarders, only property and power matters to them.
  7:21pm Nate:

Oakland fo evaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
  7:22pm Nate:

With you on Defari, Jam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm cklequ:

@Tall Paul: Amazing and depressing, creativity has no monetary value..
  7:24pm Tall Paul:

Agree with you all on this. The money will always rule unfortunately
  7:25pm Josey:

Big money rules at the expense of art and the good of the community - same old story - sadly
  7:26pm Tall Paul:

Yo Bill really feeling and enjoying the tunes.
Any chance of some Paris or P.E? A bit of X-Clan if you have some too
  7:27pm Tall Paul:

Any Poor Righteous Teachers?
  7:27pm kaboogie:

Baysht of a tune!
  7:28pm Lucy:

This type of thing has happened to so many places I know around the country. Not always violent, but always for money, at least in principle. Rebel Diaz are rad folks with a good fan base so I doubt they will not fight back.
  7:29pm Lucy:

And love to billy for another slammin show!
Avatar 7:31pm Billy Jam:
