Skip to comments.Anti-Wall St. protesters ready to block clean-up

Protesters with the Occupy Wall Street movement threatened on Thursday to block any efforts by clean-up crews to enter their camp to clear away three-weeks worth of debris, raising concern about a potential showdown between demonstrators and police.
While New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said their protests can continue as long as laws are obeyed, the city has become concerned over the build-up of trash and general wear and tear on Zuccotti Park, headquarters for the demonstrators.
Bloomberg visited protesters at the park on Wednesday night and informed them it would be cleaned by work crews on Friday, a move demonstrators said was a ploy to permanently drive them from their camp about five blocks from City Hall in lower Manhattan.
"What's been said is that we can come back later, but of course we're skeptical," said Jeff Schurte, 29, who recently earned his master's degree in international development. "This could just be an excuse to get us out permanently."

They can just pretend it’s their mom wanting to clean their bedroom in the basement.
Here we go with the violence.I don’t think they will like not begin allowed to sleep in the park.
Probably someone who lives in one of the buildings who has to pass by to get home....s I understand it there are a lot of condos in the upper floors of those buildings

Oh boy, this is gonna be GREAT!!!
First thing that comes to mind with "degree in International Development" is someone who studied international marketing. But, given this crowd, it's probably a seriously useless degree in international community organizing.
They will most likely arrest all who don’t comply. We are still (mostly) a nation of laws, after all.
You know what would be a great visual? If the cleanup crews have to wear hazmat suits while scouring the park.
Yep they’re just like the Tea Party!
I say let the disease take it’s course they deserve to live in the swill they create .

You just can’t get anything past these intellectual heavyweights with ‘international development’ degrees.
why is sanitation necessary - anarchy is good, isn’t it? A bit of typhoid, dysentery, tetanus, etc are not a big deal, or they?
Sounds like Arrested Development to me.
Fire trucks filled with pepper spray problem solved.
Show’s over, kids. Go on home now.
That appears to be as useful as a MA in Art History.
What kind of job will a master's in international development get you?
