Civil rights activist and Democratic presidential candidate Al Sharpton of New York is coming to St. Louis to join in a protest designed to disrupte the 10th anniversary celebration of MetroLink. The president of MoKan, the Minority Contractors Association, says black St. Louis residents are upset with the level of minority participation in the building of light-rail. President Eddie Hasan claims minority firms have been awarded only five percent of the work. He would like to see that at 25 percent. About the protest, Hasan proclaims, “We’re crashing the party”.
