Dozens of OWS protesters are being brutally arrested at Zuccotti Park in Manhattan, according to unconfirmed reports. Police are said to be pushing journalists and activists alike, telling everyone present to leave or face arrest.
The NYPD reportedly tore down newly-placed tents in the park on Saturday night. They also allegedly shut down vendors around the park as they assaulted peaceful protesters inside.
The police are said to be obstructing members of the press from entering the square “for safety reasons.”
The NYPD has reportedly erected barricades around Liberty Square in violation of a court order. They have been using public buses to transport the arrested.
Activists on twitter claim the NYPD refused to let two medics through to help a girl having a seizure.
Dozens of police have swept through the downtown Manhattan park, removing Occupy Wall Street demonstrators who were celebrating the movement’s six-month anniversary. New York City police announced Zuccotti Park had closed for the evening before moving through the excited and sometimes agitated protesters, who chanted and beat drums as they went. A spokesperson for Occupy Wall Street has estimated that dozens of protesters were arrested.
