A rally is taking place in Corona Sunday calling for New York’s billionaires to pay more taxes to help the state recover from the COVID-19 economic downturn.
The “Barrios Not Billionaires” march is being organized by Make the Road New York and will kick off near Corona Plaza at 2:30 p.m. The demonstration is being supported by several Queens elected officials and other advocacy groups.
Make the Road New York (MTRNY), a New York City-based immigrant advocacy group with an office in Jackson Heights, wants the ultra-rich to cover the $14 billion state deficit projected for 2021 that was caused, in large part, by the coronavirus shutdown.
