plaza project

We were looking up our plaza the other day, and we found it on YouTube! I thought it was rather interesting that our plaza made it on YouTube....even though pretty much everything is up on YouTube. It's about the protests and the problems that the people living there had with the government, because the city wanted to come in and put down a hardscape while the people living there wanted greenery and gardens. And even after the inhabitants start planting trees and stuff to make it the way they wanted to (I think they had finally gotten an agreement with the city that let them), the city came in bulldozed the trees and stuff. It's pretty crazy. At least that's what we think happened from the bad translation that we found of some articles...by the way, the video's not in English either :-P
