Skip to comments.NYC official: Protest cleanup is being postponed
Posted on 10/14/2011 4:03:45 AM PDT by lowbridge
The cleanup of a plaza in lower Manhattan where protesters have been camped out for a month was postponed early Friday, sending cheers up from a crowd that had feared the effort was merely a pretext to evict them.
Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway said the owners of the private park, Brookfield Office Properties, had put off the cleaning, scheduled for 7 a.m. More than hour beforehand, supporters of the protesters had started streaming into the park, creating a crowd of several hundred chanting people.
A confrontation between police and protesters, who had vowed to stay put through civil disobedience, had been feared. Boisterous cheers floated up from the crowds as the announcement of the postponement circulated, and protesters began polling each other on whether to make an immediate march to Wall Street, a few blocks away.

“The other guy just blinked.”
Ask Daley for a hand... his daddy taught him how to handle these vermin. 1968 Chicago... that is what they need in NY.
Maybe they are writing a strongly worded letter.
This should keep many of the scum from outside activities there.

Too bad, they just empowered the rabble.
HOw do you see these people leaving? Fact is they won’t. They want to get arrested, they also have no where else to go. I love it. DOes anyone have any photos of garbage in contrast to the Tea Partiers?
WTH,they are taking the job of the UNION workers.
Anyone that manages to get fired from McDonald's doesn't need OWS for help.
fine, let them wallow in their filth
let them wallow in their own filth! the less pleasant their experience, the sooner they’ll all go back to their basements and garages
Smart move, let them fizzle in the rain and stink. Give them an excuse to make the news and it will grow. The occupiers are looking gross in their filth.
The mob is suppose to march on TS tomorrow.
And having the deputy mayor make the announcement, even more gutless.
No fear, nature is bringing in the big washdown equipment later today along with its new chilling effect on the protests. They will still start to enforce the camping, tents and sleeping bag rules.
Brookfield just got Umpteen Diddly dollars of DOE money for a solar boondoggle in New Hampshire...
Brookfield and Mayor Bloomberg have been bought and paid for, and have been supporting this DNC-connected protest since day one. They own the monster, because they created the monster.
When the shit hits the fan, as it most certainly will, Mayor Bloomberg will not be able to escape responsibility. Giving in to the mob like this will only make the eventual blow-up all the worse.
Bloomberg let this get out of control, now we have a few hundred idiots camping out with no real message , bringing unsanitary conditions, fleas, lice, rats, etc into an area, , making the area look like a dump for tourists, costing police overtime.
Yea well done Bloomberg you idiot and why is the media following this FHS, seriously it’;s a handful of smelly people, hardly worthy of the news let alone national news.?
The City of New York is run by Communist sympathizing Cowards. No wonder that the Muzzies were emboldened enough to put a Victory Mosque at Ground Zero.
Let them sit in their poop until a Nor’easter blows in. Serves them right.
The owners of the park can raze the place afterward, maybe even get some “toxic waste cleanup” money from the Feds for it.
OK, I give up. Who is he?
can you imagine the bedbugs there which plague NY City, the rats coming out at night, the lice, the fleas.
Truly sickening and these layabouts have no where to go , no job to go to , just a place to live and meet other like minded folk while asking for handouts and wallowing in their own filth and smell.
the blood of the cops that will be needed to extricate the rabble will be on his hands, not that he really cares.
They really love sleeping in their own crap.
Bloomberg is the protestors' bitch.
Marx in the parks - keeping their pimp hand strong.
Hey....I’ll bet their and FAT intake is in line with Bloomberg, so everything is fine.
Good point Ann.
So long as they have the right amount of salt intake all is well in NY.
The fascist fuhrer of New York City gives his stamp of approval to the fascist mob at the park. How unusual.
I think this is far more dangerous. This is the beginning of a national effort of the left to overthrow the existing social order of the US. The unions are starting to coalesce with the OWS crowd and I look forward to see the professional EEO victim crowd, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson types to start showing up as well. More will follow, like the environmentalists and the Hispanic illegal aliens advocates, etc. This is all being fanned by Obama and his allies to force "change" on America with a manufactured crisis. He will get his way or try and burn the country down IMO.
Bedbugs have some semblance of propriety.
Exactly. And why doesn't he care? Because the voters don't care, either - or at least that's what he figures.
zero knows that this is make or break time.
He knows he is way high in corruption with his green energy, fast and furious and the economy is in dire mess.
All zero and his elitist fools have now is use the smelly layabouts to cause havoc and maybe bring down America as we know it.
The GOP needs to get AD’s out there using their signs and video’s saying is this the changed you voted for, is this the change of how the Dem party has turned out, commies and socialists.
The older Dems need to understand that their party of JFK is not the party they knew and now it has been corrupted by the fringe elements of the left
I’ll change doused to douched!
Unless they are practicing their tactics and working the bugs out for when they begin in ernest, this "movement" when examined closely makes no sense.
What it should do is send a warning that when they are sent to where we are, we are on our own as far as dealing with them goes. We can count on no one but ourselves.
And make no mistake, they are coming.
A side story to this sham in NYC is that Bloomberg is not supporting his Police Chief,Ray Kelly.Having personaly been in this tiny 300’X100’ non-park on Thursday,I believe Ray Kelly a very competent Police Chief could clear the grassless private property in less than 1 hour.
This is what obama meant when he said “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”.
This blueprint for organizing has been in place since before the election of 2008. Such a coincidence (NOT) that this is happening as we head into the next election?
It is naive to think that this is nothing but a bunch of rabble rousing youth.
I just hope they start to get dysentery, cholera, typhus, etc., all of the diseases that plagued, and often destroyed, medieval armies.
Doomberg needs to be flooded with emails and letters saying that nobody in their right mind would want to visit NY under these circumstances, or the mentality that allowed it to prevail. NYC relies on Tourism, and this on top of the bedbugs can be a serious health issue. Tourism in NYC should flat line.
You are absolutely on target - This scenario does not make sense and whatever is going on behind the scenes is truly sinister.
Bloomberg is clearly in cahoots with the higher up socialists orchestrating this - remember the golf outing with Obama?
Bloomberg as mayor of NYC is supposed to be putting the needs of the people of his city as his first priority, not prioritizing the protection of a random mobs’ right of free speech. Many of this mob do not even live in NYC. Sure we have the right to free speech, but this right is balanced with residents’ rights to a noise free, clean environment, which the mayor is supposed to be taking seriously. There are city ordinances in place that could have easily been enforced early on, if the mayor actually cared about his residents and businesses.
- If the financial district were to be shut down - there goes a huge chunk of NYC’s revenue. How would a bona fide mayor let this happen?
- The residents and business owners are complaining of noise, stink ,etc. Why is the mayor ignoring the needs of his own constituents in favor of the protestors?
- When are NYC taxpayers going to realize that they are footing the 2 million+ overtime bill for the police? Do hard working New Yorkers really want to finance this rabble?
As you said - it makes no sense and therefore I smell a very large RAT in the background of all this.
This mess is NOT spontaneous. I may sound too conspiracy oriented, but there is no way this is not being orchestrated by higher up communists with money trying to bring this country down by the use of anarchy.
Want to watch Bloomberg handcuff the whole crowd and drag them away?
That’s easy — we dress up like moslems (in turbans + burkas), stroll up to Zuccotti Park, and announce “We intend to build a mosque... right HERE.”
Bloomberg would have the park clear in 10 minutes, and he’d be pouring the concrete foundation for the new mosque 4 hours later.
I saw a pic of demonstrators cleaning up.
If it is accurate, maybe it’s the first time any of them have had a ‘job’ or actually ‘worked’.
Maybe it will catch on with them.
I am sure they picked New York not only because of the presence of Wall Street, but because it is run by PC libs who they were sure they could roll.
