Occupy Wall Street posted a notice on its website earlier today that it intends to block the subways and Foley Square, and shut down Wall Street, whatever that may mean, this Thursday. Meanwhile, the NYPD appears to be getting ready to counter a possible major push by the protesters with a new plan that would mobilize hundreds of cops assigned to headquarters. A poster titled "Mass Non-Violent Direct Action" declares "Shut down Wall Street at 7 a.m., Occupy the Subways in the five boroughs at 3 p.m., and take Foley Square at 5 p.m." the poster depicts a reference to the 1989 Tiananmen Square uprising in China, where a man faced off against a tank.
Speaking at a press conference touting the city's tourism and hotel industry, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, ""We're not going to allow people to stop commerce and to stop people's right to go around and express themselves. No one group has the righAht to protest. They all have the right to protest."
"The New York Stock Exchange will open on time. People will be able to get to work, you can rest assured," he added.
Occupy Wall Street leaders announced today their plans to rachet up their wild antics — vowing to wreak havoc on Thursday by shutting down Wall Street and the subways to mark the renegade group’s two-month takeover of Zuccotti.
According to their Web site, the day will include “Mass, Non-violent Direct Action” to “Shut Down Wall Street” at 7 a.m., “Occupy the Subways” in all five boroughs at 3 p.m. and “Take the Square,” referring to Foley Square, at 5 p.m.
Here's the problem:
The girl that is talking in the background of this video is a idiot! They gave them letters telling them exactly what was going to happen to their stuff if they did not remove it, they did not remove it so....... not sure I see the problem here.
It's no big deal though, there are thousands of other occupy protests around the world.
