Neighborhood doesn’t need a Walgreens

Dear Editor:

The attempt by Walgreens to impose its will on my community without caring what we residents need (“Brooklyn nabe protests opening of Walgreens” – Aug. 8) is disgraceful.

I believe the question, “What does a person deserve by being a person?” by the founder of Aesthetic Realism, Eli Siegel, needs to be discussed honestly in this situation. Here we have a perfect example of people demanding to be seen as mattering.

The ever-increasing drive for profits by various corporations is showing itself to be detrimental to the very health and well being of communities everywhere, and of the nation itself.

People in Windsor Terrace don’t need a huge pharmacy. We need a food market, and a good one – and we deserve it.
