My Twitter feed is ablaze.
As I write this, NYPD are in the act of evicting the OWS protestors from Zuccotti Park. And the cops must feel justified in the rightness of their actions because they are doing it at 2 am under the cover of darkness, barring any reporters from getting near the scene, and telling nearby residents that they are unable to leave their homes until the repression is complete.
After seeing what happened in Oakland, I would reason that if you’re going after people armed with little more than pot and drum circles in full riot gear, you are probably part of the problem. Unfortunately I am off to start another shift so I can’t see how this latest development plays out, but stay safe everyone.
