If this is true, these people are about two days from being declared dangerous outlaws.

Seriously, this isn't good.

A comment on the page you linked:


The Marines are coming to Wall St...(to PROTECT the protestors) "I'm heading up there tonight in my dress blues. So far, 15 of my fellow marine buddies are meeting me there, also in Uniform. I want to... send the following message to Wall St and Congress: I didn't fight for Wall St. I fought fo...r America. Now it's Congress' turn. My true hope, though, is that we Veterans can act as first line of d...efense between the police and the protester. If they want to get to some protesters so they can mace them, they will have to get through the ####ing Marine Corps first. Let's see a cop mace a bunch of decorated war vets. I apologize now for typos and errors. Typing this on iPhone whilst heading to NYC. We can organize once we're there. That's what we do best. If you see someone in uniform, gather together. A formation will be held tonight at 10PM. We all took an oath to uphold, protect and defend the constitution of this country. That's what we will be doing. Hope to see you there!!"


Seems to be getting bigger. I hope heavy-handed crackdowns are not on the way, but I can't see them letting this get out of hand. May give the serfs the wrong idea.

Yet on the live feed they are all being arrested one by one, despite this being a peaceful protest so far.

This could turn nasty at any moment.

If this is true, they have just given license to NYPD to do whatever it takes to remove them from the streets. I think we need pictures (or a live feed) to verify exactly what it means when they say "taken over" the bridge...

ETA: simultaneous posting... thanks for the feed (above me)

Looks like there is a barrier on the side of the bridge where the police are standing, so maybe this was expected? or intended?

Maybe. It is also possible that if they do it could become the long awaited spark.

Spread link to livefeed, numbers are going through the roof. Cops just arrested girl about 13 years old. Love the guy behind camera heckling cops "Go to hardware store, get more ziplocks"
What a shame.

These cops are wasting valuable resources--->
by arresting the very people who are paying their salaries.

I think theyre arresting people because its illegal to be blocking traffic and in most places its illegal to protest without telling the city when and where and for how long. If you go out of the designated area they'll arrest you

I think JP Morgan should be placed on the people's to-do list if not presently in the works.
