Letter to Editor
Southern Brooklyn Housing Struggle

From Russian Forward
May 24- 30, 2002

Beginning in mid-January, your paper (Russian Froward), published articles about the lottery of apartments in the subsidized housing units "Amalgamated Warbasse Houses." A month before that all the residents received letters from the management and directors about the privatization of Warbasse.

Later, we received more documents about this. In April we were invited to a gathering at Abraham Lincoln High school to ask questions about the privatization and the transition from the Mitchell Lama program.

Even those who know some English, could not understand anything. What is there to say about the older immigrants who do not speak any English. After all this is a serious question. But the management, as we say is behind seven locks, and it's impossible to talk to anyone. Please help us.
