This fund has been made to help our neighbor Mr. Anik siddiq keep his business in our community.Mr. Kamara owns and operates “American Star Hardware Store” on St Johns pl and has served the neighborhood with care and dedication for more than 8 years.Recently the executor of the building has put the the property up for sale anik is in risk of being permanently evicted.
After a year of lenghty legal disputes to try to keep his place of business, Mr. Kamara was offered the rights to the selling contract if he manages to pay all taxation fines first.
If we gather $5,400 by the next court day on January 3 th 2019, Mr. anik could have first access to the selling contract and avoid eviction.The goal amount listed here covers the Gogetfunding processing fees.
You do not know him directly, his plight is that of every small business owner being displaced in a rapidly gentrified city.If we stand in solidarity in cases like this we can help decide the future of our neighborhoods and keep our communities together.When unjust displacement happens it affects the security of the whole neighborhood and breaks up longstanding relationships in a community that go beyond quick profit.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration, anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated and goes to a stronger, more united Brooklyn.All donations will be deposited directly to Mr. anik siddiq
