Police brass have demanded that Occupy Wall Street protesters temporarily vacate their filthy encampment in Zuccotti Park today to allow it to be power-washed, and return without their camping gear -- setting the stage for a massive confrontation between cops and demonstrators vowing to defy the order.



The well-needed scrubbing is seen by some as a clever way to rid lower Manhattan of the demonstrators, scores of whom have been busted for civil disobedience since setting up shop Sept. 17. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the cleaning will be done in three shifts this morning beginning at 7 -- and when the protesters return, their grimy gear will be banned from the privately owned park.

Hordes of protesters dug in their heels last night and said they’re ready to get busted in confrontations with cops.
“I’m willing [to be arrested]. It’s not my first choice, but if it’s needed, I will,” said B.C. Craig, 48, a professor at Bard College. Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons arrived at 11 p.m. to talk with demonstrators and asked a cop, “Hey, if I’m here in the morning, will I get arrested?” The officer did not reply.

The protesters laid out a plan on their Facebook page last night. “We’ll awake and position ourselves with our brooms and mops in a human chain around the park, linked at the arms. If NYPD attempts to enter, we’ll peacefully/nonviolently stand our ground,” a posting read.

Well, only minutes to go before the Cleaning crews start moving in. And I'm talking about the Cops....

This is going to get real ugly, fast. IMO.

But hey, deep down... and behind the scens... It's what the organizers really want.

I can assure you those organizers won't be anywhere near the action front. Well, lets see what happens. Turn on the TV.

I just saw this article.... yes, the games are over...
Wall St. protesters Will NOT be allowed to bring sleeping bags, tents back into Park

I thought it was a private park. I also hear Russell Simmons has offered to pay to have it cleaned. I think they want it closed down before the weekend, when many more protests are set to take place.

What?
Your TV is the worst source if you want to see what really happens.

That means they're trespassing now.
On private property.

Are they squatters now?

After renovations in 2006, the park was renamed by its current owners, Brookfield Office Properties, after company chairman John Zuccotti.

Yes, indeed the wealthy tycoons and moguls own almost everything essentially.

I personally find it distressing.

Private property owned by a fictitious idea known as a corporation.

They claim it's a real person but I assure you, it's just an idea. It's all imagination.

But these imaginary ideas own almost everything now.

Also, since a corporation is it's own person, if something goes wrong the corporation (non-existent entity) is punished (not a real punishment) and the share-holders who propagate that corporation get off scott-free most of the time.

It is private and the owners have filed a complaint with the city. They say the filth is attracting rodents.

Nobody is trespassing anywhere. Even though it is privately owned it is accessible by the public and is required by agreement with the city to be open 24/7. In no way can they ban the protestors from this park but the owners can ban the camping equipment.

Just heard on the news that the owners of the park have rescinded their request for Police assistance, and have postponed the cleaning for now..

no source yet, it just broke, but it looks like the confrontation will have to wait for another day?

Obama definetly brought Change.... Change we could have done without.. IMO.

Greetings JacKatMtn:

We sit in wonderment at the specious argument that the protesters are mainly being painted by the MSM as "potheads," "vagabonds," even "ruffians" and "imported instigators."

Some of this may be true.

However, we seem to be able to hold Rainbow Gatherings at various places on beautiful Mother Earth and have been lauded as leaving the "occupied land" in a better state than before encampment.

Evidently, many of the occupier/protestors do not have the same modes operandi.

Too bad.

That may be the big stick that the man uses as the excuse to move them.

Come on, people protestors, pick up after yourselves!

Just our two cents.

In Peace, Love & Light

Well, after thinking about it from the NYPD's point of things. And then Wall Street tossed in.

Neither of them want a full fledge riot (Cleaning) on a Friday in NYC. No way... ain't gonna happen.

I predict the "Cleaning" will begin tomorrow morning, Saturday, at 6:00. Watch for a large concentration of buses and police vehicles arriving in the area before 6:00. Most likely they will stage the cops in underground garages near the cite-the will be the ones in full riot gear and dedicated to the Cleaning.

If the "Protestors" don't obey and begin to resist-peaceful or otherwise.... Watch out.

It wasn't just "postponed", it was called of entirely.

Nice. In their victory they broke into an impromptu March on Wall St. Catching the police off guard. Normally the police head then off before reaching wall St. Proper, but this time about 300 made it.
