ECTC Protest at City Council Meeting

The Emergency Committee on the Transportation Crisis (ECTC), centered in Brookland, standing up for the anti-freeway cause at a D.C. City Council meeting. The ECTC successfully fought the construction of the North-Central Freeway which would have required the demolition of innumerable homes and portions of entire neighborhoods. (1969)
