Tents and everything were taken out of the park by the police. The protesters are trying to resume their occupation there, although they were told they cannot have tents etc. and live there 24 hours a day. There was a curfew of 10 pm instituted, and the protesters have National Lawyers Guild lawyers involved regarding an injunction that was issued preventing the police from not allowing back in the park.

FROM the official site:

Tuesday November 15, 2011

"Liberty Square (Zuccotti Park), home of Occupy Wall Street for the past two months and birthplace of the 99% movement that has spread across the country and around the world, is presently being evicted by a large police force.

EVERYONE should get to the park immediately for eviction defense! Subway stations and bridges are closed. Please either take a cab or use Canal St. subway station (which is currently open.)

More information to follow.

Updates
1:43 a.m. Helicopters overhead.
1:38 a.m. Unconfirmed reports of snipers on rooftops.
1:34 a.m. CBS News Helicopter Livestream
1:27 a.m. Unconfirmed reports that police are planning to sweep everyone.
1:20 a.m. Subway stops are closed.
1:20 a.m. Brooklyn bridge is closed.
1:20 a.m. Occupiers chanting "This is what a police state looks like."
1:20 a.m. Police are in riot gear.
1:20 a.m. Police are bringing in bulldozers.

http://occupywallst.org/

Remarks: My own belief is that they have the right to free assembly, and protest, but not the right to take over public property and live there. An occupation is not an assembly, it is an occupation. They a permanent base in the park, the law does not allow for that as far as I understand it.

Oh my.

The park is now open.

After a good cleaning.

Thanks for the hysteria.

What went on was the riot cops took all the stuff, tents, everything down, made the people leave via a variety of methods. They hauled all the stuff away in Dept of Sanitation trucks. The protesters went to Foley Square. Bloomberg had a press conference at 8 am. Only credentialed press were admitted. 9 am the Wall street protesters are meeting with union organizers (from unions) who will call out some of their members to help the protesters in their future protests (they want to return to Zuccotti park).

November 17th an action is planned by the protesters to shut down the subways and also have protesters go to other boroughs in NYC.

Part of the whole thing is to challenge the 1st amendment which says people have a right to free assembly, but assembly is usually believed to be different than assemblying and staying in a place, ie. living in a park. So there will be legal challenges to removing them from public spaces that they occupy.

Had live coverage of Bloomberg's press conference

Awesome plan. Inconvenience all the workers of NYC as they try to get to work and support their families. Makes sense to me.

They are getting the help with unions and their memberships to come out for protest support. There is a group at Zuccotti Park now as well as a group resting in Foley Square (near the Supreme Court Bldg in NYC) as well as the group at Canal Street and 6th Avenue now.

http://www.livestream.com/globalrevolution

This is Canal St and 6th Avenue where they hope to have union members join them.

At Zuccotti Park - 200 people were arrested this morning, a NYC Council Member was injured.

Many of the protesters were arrested for "failure to disperse", estimates are 200 people have been arrested, and most recently 4 reporters, including one from Associated Press and one from Daily News were just arrested at the Canal St and 6th Avenue gathering.

As the day unfolds and the anger sets in with the protesters (of having lost the things they had in their tents and the tents being confiscated), in addition to the lack of sleep (being woken up at 1:20 am when the raid began), it is not a good situation.

The protesting contingent that was at Canal St and 6th Avenue is en route to Zuccotti Park to tell the others that the judge ruled in their favor, so the cops cannot make them leave the park. It's going to be a looooong day in NYC.

I don't get the vitriol, though. Why? This is the first group of people to ever get pissed about something?

Reporters etc. There have been 300 people living in Zuccotti Park with others coming in from their homes in the city and other boroughs. Right now decision is pending from a second judge who is to rule on if they can return to the park.

Tonight at 12 AM Occupy Toronto gets evicted, watch them live.

http://occupystreams.org/

The Phoenix encampment was raided earlier this afternoon, and there was some chatter about Joe Biden and the Cleveland movement.

Let's see who's the first to claim that Andrew Breitbart paid that dirtbag to take a dump on the street...

I've seen it in person. There are a lot of normal (well semi normal anyway) who hang out there during the day but the ones living there are pretty hard core and they were not only fouling up the park but basically running the neighborhood which is not made up of Wall Street fat cats but small business owners. It seems that people were not so keen to eat at the deli across the street when vagabonds are holding meetings in there. They have a right to protest. They do not have a right to occupy and take the park away from everyone else, certainly not for two months.

Other than the rape, suicides, deaths, tubercluosis, arson, public masturbation, anti-semitism, vandalism, piles of human sh*t and outbreaks of body and head lice, I think it has been a successful hang.
