Thursday, March 22th, 2012. New York City – Good morning world from Occupy Wall Street at Union Square Park in NYC. The City that Never Sleeps!
Occupiers said on their website that “after the Million Hoodie March for Trayvon Martin, many Occupiers returned to Union Square for the night. They were met with an even larger police presence. Occupiers were doing nothing except socializing, playing music, and resting when hundreds of police, with many high-ranking officials and riot squads present, set up barricades. As though trying to incite a riot, the NYPD forced them from their peaceful encampment once again, formed a human chain around protesters, and threatened to arrest anyone who sits in the park.”
They have several events for the coming days: Weekly Wall Street Marches, OWS Orientation, Disrupt Dirty Power, Studying May Day and the General Strike – w/ Ruth Milkman, Occupy Town Square IV, Bronx Foreclosure Auction Blockade, Cultural Occupation Of Liberty Square (COOLS) and May Day 2012.
