Opposers of Hotel launch counter protest

Opposers of the Elmwood Village Hotel have decided to pull a counter attack on the so-called "rally" in support of the hotel on Monday at 5pm on the proposed site at Elmwood and Forest.

Opposers say that the protest of the hotel will be peaceful and be isolated to opposite the side of of the street from the supporters of the hotel. They are asking anyone who is AGAINST the proposal to attend.

WNYmedia.net is calling the opposers "Banannas" and "Nimby's" (Not In My Backyard).

The opposers of the hotel have not once called names of those who support the project and to this day have respected those who support the project and their stance. They have never subjected to name calling and or any kind of rotton names etc... We fought for our cause without the severe defense mechanism that this support group is.

My question is, where were they when we opposed? Why is this the FIRST support rally they had? And most important, how many of them live in the city? I respect those opinions of those who live in Derby, Cheektowaga, Amherst, etc...But I do not support them telling the opposers what's best for their neighborhood/community.

Lets not forget that the only reason why this proposal came about was because of one person. Hans Mobius. If he was not such a "slumlord" and kept his proerties up to code and looking at least halfway decent, then there would be no proposal. He neglected them for many years and continues to do so. And all the crime and violations disappear in to thin air, and he gets a hefty 3 to 4 million dollars for his crimes.
