Dozens of street vendors rallied in downtown New York today to protest their sudden eviction by the introduction of the City's bike docking stations.On Liberty Street, just one of the many sites, the docking station is half a block long which has meant vendors, with loyal customers, are being pushed onto side streets which is leading to turf battles with other vendors.Nobody likes it and vendors say they were excluded from discussions.WBAI's Rebecca Myles was there and files this story.
