石溪不法出租正被逼出(七)

        (上接六)在这种强压猛赶下,难道被清理对象除了束手就擒以外,就没有房东站出来说“不”吗?有!
 
    在任何纷争里,只要有不同的声音就可以正视听,只要有相反的诉求就说明道理不一定完全在一方手里。在美国社会,声音不在大小,只要有,就会被关注,就会被披露。时下在美国的普通百姓都可以建立个人的信息平台,在发出自己的声音后,就会引起公众的思考和判断。相信正义最终战胜邪恶!
图为联盟网站首页横幅
        一个叫“石溪房东与租户联盟”的组织(见左图,以下简称“联盟”)应声产生了,他们的主旨之一在网上是这样写的(为使原文不被译有歧义发生,原文如下):

The Coalition was formed in response to the recent riots by a group of neighbors targeting off-campus students’ rentals and its property owners, especially minority owners.  The Coalition also finds it necessity to fight the trend toward increasingly invasive and restrictive legislation on the private investments and rentals by the Town of Brookhaven.
        起始于 2013 10 19 日,有 30 位盟员(见该网站1023日的消息;12 11 日,联盟发起人给《时代烽火》更新的人数为 100 人)。

   他们提出了(1)镇政府“一家庭” 定义违反州宪法,(2)镇政府立法不公正,(3)镇政府侵犯公民隐私权,(4)镇政府采集不利于房东的证据手段非法,和(5)房东应受“Grandfather Clause”保护等 5 项诉请。
        他们同样倡明宗旨,号召团结,鼓励盟员站出来,把自己的诉求说出去。
        他们用自己的网站表达他们的声音。最为激烈和严重的是对新闻12台报道的反应(20131024日,原文如下):
The other group led by Mr. Bruce Sander went on public media again last night to make another round of turbulence in this community. Here is the link of this report: 

Homeowners protest illegally subdivided, rented houses near Stony Brook University

Our response is simple and clear, this group purposely manipulated and misinterpreted the town codes to cover their racial discrimination indeed.  This group doesn’t like Asian residents or investors here to live and conduct business in this neighborhood. They claimed to preserve the quality of the community, however, they actually ignited the racial discrimination flare and broke the peace and harmony in this community. Their goal is to expel us out and put us out of business. They used the same tricks as the one to black people in 50s. They alarm all the neighbors whenever an Asian house buyer wants to see the house for sale in this community. They follow Asian landlords, take photos, count cars on driveways and report anything they dont like to the town. They have laid a great hardship on us and obviously crossed the line and committed a racial crime.  This is why we want to form our organization and fight for our constitutional right.
        笔者认为,用勇敢二字来形容该联盟的勇气,用赞扬二字来表达尊重言论自由的权利,同时不得不用遗憾二字面对目前联盟网页上的成绩单。

  5. The Ancient and Novel in Song of Songs was sex included within the work
    itself at the very least, bizarre. The news has received some limited
    coverage in the footsteps off his dad.
