Abstract/Description
Activist wearing a pink sweater and blue jeans stands on a street corner in Chinatown and hands out fliers on Parcel C. In the 1990s, the New England Medical Center negotiated with the City of Boston to build a parking garage on Parcel C in Chinatown, land which had previously been promised to Chinatown residents for a community center. The Chinese Progressive Association helped form the Coalition to Protect Parcel C, which was instrumental in halting the New England Medical Center's plan. On September 12-13, 1993, Chinatown residents voted on a referendum on whether to accept or reject the New England Medical Center's proposal to build a parking garage on Parcel C. In the right background of this image, a blue banner is partially visible. The banner says "Vote No Garage! 9/ 12-13 [Sept. 12-13, 1993]," written in both English and Chinese.
