Ciudad de Connecticut vota por echar a la calle a dos personas

El gobierno de la ciudad de New London en Connecticut ha votado 5 a 2 por echar a la calle a dos personas que se oponen al plan estatal que construiría, en el lugar donde viven, hoteles y condominios con el propósito de recaudar más impuestos. Pobre gente.

City officials voted to evict two residents whose refusal to give up their riverfront houses helped lead to the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark ruling that governments may seize property for private development projects.

The City Council voted 5-2 in favor of eviction Monday. An attorney for the residents said they are considering continuing to fight.

The city has been trying for a decade to redevelop the once-vibrant neighborhood at the point where the Thames River joins the sea. Seven homeowners challenged the city's plans to seize the property and build a hotel, convention center and upscale condominiums, saying eminent domain can't be used to make way for private development.
