Two dozen protesters from a gun club named after the founder of the Black Panther Party marched through the streets of South Dallas on Wednesday.
The open-carry rally was organized by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club to promote self-defense and community policing in response to recent police shootings.
Police monitored the black-clad demonstrators, some of whom had rifles slung over their shoulders. As they walked down MLK Boulevard, many chanted “black power” and “justice for Michael Brown,” the black teenager shot by police in suburban St. Louis.
At one point, the group stopped at Elaine’s Kitchen, and one of the organizers told those who were armed to display their weapons in a “safe, disciplined manner.”
An organizer who identified himself as Huey Freeman said they planned to patronize several South Dallas businesses to keep their money in the community and teach their neighbors about their “right to self-defense.”

Residents blame rink for raise in rent

Kingsbridge Heights residents are pushing to reverse a proposed rent hike they believe to be caused by the imminent construction of a large new ice sports center at the Kingsbridge Armory. 
On the evening of Aug. 14, about 25 tenants and activists gathered in the lobby of a rent-controlled high-rise at 2800 University Ave., a few blocks away from the Armory location, to discuss a potential increase of $11.69 per room for the building’s tenants. 
“People like us are getting kicked out of our homes because our rent is going up,” said Jay Espy, a member of People Power Movement (PPM). 
The group, which describes itself as a democratic people’s organization dedicated to social change, organized the meeting for the building’s tenants last Thursday night.
The landlord of 2800 University Ave., Jac Zadrima of the Bronx-based Genesis Realty Group, LLC, did not respond to multiple calls for comment. 
Mr. Espy joined PPM while he was advocating against raising tuition costs at SUNY and CUNY schools during college. 
But the group’s latest fight hits particularly close to home for the 23-year-old, who has lived with his family at 2800 University Ave. for the past 22 years. 
“It’s going to change the neighborhood for the worse for us,” he said of the Armory development, which he believes is the impetus behind rent hikes and evictions in the neighborhood. 
The historic site is set to house the largest indoor ice rink complex in the world, after the city inked a $300 million deal with KNIC Partners to develop the center last November. 
His organization’s focus on the 2800 University Ave., along with two other buildings on the same street, began after the former building’s landlord filed an application for a Major Capital Improvement (MCI) rent increase.
