Jesuit At Leftist Rent-Rally Protest Thirteen Arrested

Thirteen people were arrested Monday afternoon at a sit-in outside 250 Broadway, an office building in lower Manhattan that houses some New York State Senate and Assembly offices. 
The sit-in was staged by protesters angered by the state Senate's failure to pass rent-reform legislation. Protesters blamed the failure on a key group of Democrats in the Democrat-controlled Senate, including senators Pedro Espada, Craig Johnson, and Carl Kruger..........
A pastor from the Jesuits of New York, Fr. Mark Hallinan, S.J. (here) was also present at the rally. “This is not just a political issue,” he said. “This is a moral issue.”
