NYC Liberty HQ spokesman Zach Huff says the “Million Big Gulp March” will be held in City Hall Park at 4:30 p.m. today.
It will be attended by business owners, local politicians and others against the proposed ban.
Mayor Bloomberg wants to bar restaurants, movie theaters, sports arenas, food carts and delis from selling sodas and other sugary drinks in servings larger than 16 ounces. He says it’s a way to fight obesity in a city that spends billions of dollars a year on weight-related health problems.
Opponents say the city is overstepping its authority and infringing on personal freedom.
The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic is on location in Central Park, New York City to find out people’s reactions to Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed Super Size Soda ban.
