Several readers complained of being awakened or disturbed this morning by a noisy demonstration along Clark Street. We have learned that the protest was organized by Housing Works, the same folks who run the popular thrift shop on Montague near the corner of Henry Street.
It was aimed at Heights resident Robert Doar, Commissioner of the City’s Human Resources Administration/Department of Social Services (pictured above), to call attention to planned changes and cuts in services offered to people living with HIV/AIDS.
Demonstrators gathered outside Commissioner Doar’s house “on a wealthy block” here, followed him along Clark Street to the subway, and rode with him to his place of work in Manhattan. Commissioner Doar has stated his views on this issue in a post on HuffPo>.
