Face-off looms as NY protesters fear eviction
By Brigitte Dusseau | AFP 8 minutes ago
In a statement on their website, the Occupy Wall Street movement urged supporters to join them at 6:00 am (1000 GMT) on Friday at Zuccotti Park for "non-violent eviction defense."
"Bloomberg says that the park will be open for public usage following the cleaning, but with a notable caveat: Occupy Wall Street participants must follow the rules. These rules include, 'no tarps or sleeping bags' and 'no lying down,'" the statement said.
"So, seems likely that this is their attempt to shut down #OWS for good. We won't allow Bloomberg and the NYPD (New York Police Department) to foreclose our occupation."

Stop feeding them, they will leave.
Bloomberg is a wuss. I will believe it when I see it. Somebody should shout “salt” and Bloomberg will have them arrested.
Finally, Guiliani has come out and condemned this. I think it’s the first time he has disagreed with the corrupt mayor of NYC in about...what? 40 years?
hmmmm. Same thing going to happen here in Denver,CO. Mayor “no idea how my phone number got on that escort service list of johns” and Gov. “sanctuary state for illegals” Hickenlooper are going to evict the marxists so the drug dealers and the bums can have the park back.
some collusion going on?
Same here. One liberal won't be applying the law to another liberal. He won't do squat.
Oh, Noes! If they can’t “occupy” George Soros won’t give them $600 a day!
“So, seems likely that this is their attempt to shut down #OWS for good. We won’t allow Bloomberg and the NYPD (New York Police Department) to foreclose our occupation.”
Let me know how that concussion is working out for you.......
He probably has to. The owners of the park are demanding it. And they have lots of cash.
Just wait till they start smoking!
Might be interesting! Break out the popcorn!
As I understand it, @$$holes from around the world are calling and ordering food from businesses down there to be delivered to these vagrants.
Can they move the time frame for the clean up to noon, so those of us on the West Coast can watch?
Meanwhile.... pass the popcorn it IS going to get interesting.
I say let them stay. If they cause chaos, smell up the place while having a pot smokin orgie the public is going to turn against them. Or eventually they would leave once it got cold, or they would get bored if not both. Cold and bored liberal get really grouchy . They could start infighting about their message. Eventually the honeymoon is going to be over. Living in close quarters without the finer things in life will bring out the worst in them. They will start to divide up the space, make decisions that aren’t wholly agreed upon and then there will be infighting and splits in the group. The possibilities are endless on how this whole thing could blow up in their face.
Maybe they’ll show it on their livestream. Right now they’re showing clips from other protests that look like the mideast.
True-The Lord of the Flies
They should be treated no differently than anyone else.
They’re infringing on the rights of everybody else now. Time to go.
I hear the pigeons are planning their own sit in, they are angry that all the crumbs of food and assorted “OMG what is that”, will now be in short supply...oh the tyranny, the main pigeon spokesperson said...we are the .00001 % we pay no taxes because we live in poverty..Why should the ows demonstrators have more than us..I say take their supplies, etc,,and make them feed us everyday...they have time to do nothing and get fed for free...that’s not right said Bird Stratus(or BS) a leading pigeon spokesbirdsman...down with greedy protestors!!!!At least the wall street folks gave us popcorn..and what is that smell....awww Jeeeeez
Better idea... let them come back, then fence them in. See how long they last cooped up together without the creature comforts that nasty capitalism provides.
They do not want the embarrassment and jokes from conservatives when the kool-aid resolve of the occupiers-disolves with the discomforts of winter weather.
If the the unwashed 99 percenters run home to mommy with their tails between their legs, it will make liberal supporters look even worse than they do now.
In Japan, this may be called saving face
Yup. Then Bloomhead will surely kick them out.
They are exempt, they are Bloomhead (I like that one) supporters.
They need to make this interesting. Fox and Friends should do their Friday Concert Series from there.
Have Ted Nugent play.
This is The Socialist Republic of New York. I’d be surprised if anyone’s ownership rights are honored.
What’s really happening here is that Democrat-supporting forces are trying to co-opt and “whitewash” the OWS movement. They want the movement to, like the Tea Party movement, have an electoral impact so they want to put a nice, clean face on it.
The problem that the Dems will have with the attempt to whitewash the OWS movement is that if they clean it up then it will become transparent to the rest of the country. OWS has taken a siege mentality (we’re not leaving til we get what we want). Sieges don’t usually have an impact on voters because after they go down to the city to see the “freak show” once, forget about the “freak show” and go on with the rest of their lives. Eventually a whitewashed OWS movement will become invisible. or blend in with the background.
The Tea Party was effective because it had a unified message, it decided to work through the political/electoral process and because its events were done in short bursts in which everyone showed up, the media covered it and then they went away for a while. Movements like that don’t tend to ‘blend into the background’ like siege movments do.
Don’t hose me, Bro.
Bloomberg is a liberal coward. He’ll let the Occupiers create disorder for as long as they like.
For all his faults, Rudy would have had this over by now.
Tear gas these jerks and go in with nightsticks.
Tear gas these jerks and go in with nightsticks.
I was right - the “Mayor” caved. How fortunate for him that he can’t run for reelection, but on the other hand, he is not above changing the law because we “need him” - yeah, like we need cancer!
Bloomberg would have no problem with their smoking drugs - it is tobacco that he objects to! He is such a phony. He grows wussier by the day.
Now Bloomberg is going to let the little stinkers occupy Times Square—on a weekend!
He is the WORST NYC Mayor ever!
Well, there goes the Theatre District! Way to go, idiot mayor. So glad I never voted for him. Jeeze: I was supposed to use the subway this weekend - and spend money - maybe I won’t now.
Pray for a rain storm.
Hickenlooper - a great name for a john! “Hickenlooper on line 8 for Tiffany.”
Heck, I’ll pray for a tornado!
My WORKING friends who have to come in on Saturdays are very concerned. And many of them are gay and they work in large department stores. They do not like this riffraff at all.
