Skip to comments.'Occupy Wall Street' Protesters to Be Forced Out of New York Park During Cleaning (Nasty Filth)

New York City police plan to evict the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters -- if only temporarily.
The protesters, who have camped out in a city park for more than three weeks, will be forced out Friday so that city crews can help clean the area.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg visited Zucotti Park in lower Manhattan on Wednesday evening and made the cleaning announcement, citing sanitation concerns from the parks owner, MyFoxNY.com reports.
Brookfield Properties, the owner of the park, had outlined its concerns in a letter to the citys police commissioner, Ray Kelly.
The company told police that it had received hundreds of phone calls and emails from locals complaining about "lewdness, groping, drinking and drug use, the lack of safe access to and usage of the Park, ongoing noise at all hours, unsanitary conditions and offensive odors, NBC New York reports.
Brookfield also raised concerns about shipments of materials to the park, which they say are unscreened.
The park will be cleaned in stages, beginning Friday morning. Protesters will be allowed to return to their designated areas after cleaning is complete, NBC New York reports.
Brookfield normally cleans and inspects the condition of the park every night, including a power washing, landscaping and trash removal. But the company hasn't been able to do so since the protestors have sent up a tent city there as part of their demonstrations.

Need to get LOTs of pictures showing their filth...
Let them wallow in their own filth.
When they get enough of it they will move.
Now they get Maid service?
Gosh, I just read a post yesterday where the author stated that the demonstrators are organized and have things so well under control that the area sounds like it must be cleaner than it is normally.
WHAT? These fine citizens don’t clean up after themselves?????
Nancy Pelosi's cup of tea!
Hell no. That’s a job for government union workers.
The DUmmys over in the DUmp are all in a tizzy about this. There is an effort on the part of the protesters to have cleaning supplies, brooms, dustpans and powerwashers donated so that they can cleanup the park themselves.
Of course one would have thought “in-house” park clean up would have come up in a meeting say 3 and a half weeks ago but hey, more important matters are before the movement.
Anyway, if such a move to clean up after themselves were to materialize, can you imagine the city unions allowing non-union pick up of trash and untrained operators of powerwashers within the city limits? What happens when jonny protester gets a hernia picking up a trash bag?
Lots O DUFU material out there on this move to clean up the park.
Maid Service and an allowance.
Down with the bankers!
Why are the taxpayers footing the bill for the city to clean a “privately owned park?”
