At the Tribeca Tribune, Matt Dunning has the story of an East Village couple protesting in favor of the mosque plans near the World Trade Center site.
Per the article:
Julia Lundy, 28, and her boyfriend, Matt Sky, 26, were sitting in their East 5th Street apartment earlier this week, growing increasingly angry as they watched the exhaustive national debate over the proposed center—at 45-47 Park Place in Lower Manhattan—unfold before them. After talking it over, the couple decided to take to the street outside the former Burlington Coat Factory where the Cordoba Initiative hopes to carry out its plans for the project they call Park51.
On Tuesday and Wednesday they stood there, waving signs that read “America Supports All Faiths” and “Support Freedom of Religion.” The couple says they intend to be there for up to 10 hours a day for the next several days in an effort to rally support for the project.
