Panicky Billionaire Mayor Orders Eviction of Zuccotti Park (VIDEO)

News


Here is video from inside Zuccotti Park early Tuesday morning as the NYPD moved in to trash the encampment and arrest dozens of peacefully resisting protesters. THAT'S QUITE ENOUGH FREEDUMZ 4 U ALL according to nervous billionaire goon Michael Bloomberg, who ordered the "closed-to-the-press" midnight raid to placate twitchy corporate overlords to protect the "safety" of protesters. There was so much safety, in fact, that a New York City Councilman got his head smashed in and was arrested in the sweep. More photos after the jump!

Wonkette superhero operative KenLayIsAlive was on the scene and sends us this report:

Police had blocked off about 16 sq blocks or so, completely surrounding the park. People responding to the call were stopped by barricades on Broadway. I was prevented from getting any further. Eventually the group I was in, maybe 500-600 people marched straight up the middle of B'Way to Foley Sq., throwing barricades into the street as we did. Eventually this group too was surrounded by police. I snuck away at this point and returned back to B'Way.

Here are protesters linking arms to prevent a NYPD van from reaching Liberty Plaza:

Lawyers for the Occupy Movement have already won an early-morning temporary restraining order blocking Bloomberg and the owners of Zuccotti Park from evicting protesters and their tents or preventing their return. The NYT reports that lawyers say protesters will attempt to return this morning.

Here is part of Bloomberg's pissy Orwellian statement arguing that free speech doesn't count as much as "health and safety" as determined by the police state:

From the beginning, I have said that the City had two principal goals: guaranteeing public health and safety, and guaranteeing the protesters' First Amendment rights. But when those two goals clash, the health and safety of the public and our first responders must be the priority.

And to be extra monstrous, Twitter reports that the cops also dumped the 5,000 donated books in the People's Library into the trash. HOORAY FOR IGNORANCE. [Guardian/YouTube]

Poor People Are Mad As Hell, And They're Not Going to Take It Anymore.

The Poor People's Campaign marched on Washington, and we were there!

Culture Wars
by Dominic Gwinn

Yesterday the new Poor People's Campaign, led by Rev. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, concluded 40 days of protest and civil disobedience with a rally on the National Mall. Building off of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's original Poor People's Campaign 50 years ago, the new campaign is aimed at uniting labor leaders with activists to build a coalition of all marginalized people

The police have clearly failed to stop the scourge of black kids selling water to thirsty people, so your average law-abiding, permit-respecting white lady has no choice but to take matters into her own (did we mention they were white?) hands. You might call her a busybody gone power mad or a simple tool of racist micoaggression, but we just call her "Permit Patty."
