A brief but joyous victory over the Mayor last night?
Well, I went to Wall St..or rather Liberty Park yesterday at 5pm and stayed up til 9am to see what would transpire since Mayor B. and PC Kelly AND owner of the park said it has to be cleaned and people must be cleared out for 12 hours. They were to be let back in BUT with no sleeping bags, no tarps, no tents and no LAYING DOWN in the park after the cleaning. Gee, wonder if Bloomberg realizes that all these rules may end the camping down there? Har! Anyway, we all stood strong and the cleaning got postponed. Who knows what will happen..If those new rules or possibly old rules that were not enforced before but may now be actually take effect it will be a nightmare of clashes between the police and the protestors. Cops going around ticketing or bothering tired, hungry people that need to lay down and rest? Good luck with that..The energy down there was catching and it felt like a 1960's rally with a victory at the end..here are a load of photos and videos of my crazy, surreal night down there..Oh, and I named the red sculpture Ambrose!
