Spurred by a spate of sex attacks in Zuccotti Park, Occupy Wall Street protesters built a safe house for women on Friday.
The 16-square-foot military frame tent is designed to shelter up to 30 women from the predators lurking around the lower Manhattan encampment.
It will be used to protect ourselves from people out there, said Nan Terrie, 17, a protester from East Oakland Park, Fla. Im sick and tired of women getting taken advantage of, raped and murdered.
We need to take charge. We can make it happen without men telling us what to do, said Terrie, who heads a protester subcommittee called Strong Women Rules.
Terrie said the tent, erected along the southern edge of the park near Cedar St., will be outfitted with bunk beds, drawers and a welcome table. A second tent will house a computer.

SOunds to me like the sexual predators running the OWS events are just gathering all their targets in one place.
because going home would mean to admit defeat...
What was the address of that tent? He He He (best Bevis laugh)
The women heard Bill Clinton was coming and wanted a private place to get on their knees
the 16 SQFT Tent????? what is that 2 x 8 or 4 X 4 and that will accomodate 30 women, must be really small women. But these are the college educated 99% math must be difficult for them.
I’ve seen how this ends. You need to go directly to the brick house.
Raped and murdered - yes. But "taken advantage of" - what does that mean??
Murdered?? I haven’t read reports of murders, although it wouldn’t surprise me.
Have there been murders at the Occupoopers camps?
I’m pretty sure the square root of 16 is 4.
But, journos and all...
What is a 17 year old girl from Florida doing at OWS?
Heck, that would barely even shelter just me.
-——”taken advantage of” - what does that mean?? ——
They weren’t paid their fee
But aren’t women equal to men?
making a difference of course
Morons don’t even know the difference between a 16 square foot tent and a 16 FOOT SQUARE TENT. Bunch of math failures at OWS.
My personal camping tent is 10x10
Further evidence Bloomberg lost control.
Too funny! So if I were to go in the tent with a sleeping bag, pillow and a video camera what would they do, have me arrested for tresspassing? Ha ha ha ha!
That’s how you finally send these flea bags home right there.
Nice. Computers have rights too and they are sick of having USB sticks shoved into their ports. And don't even think about RAM disks.
Did they get a permit to put up the steel tent structure? Isn’t this a union job?
No comrade that is a filth capitalist's lie like the rapes. The evil capitalists will stop at nothing to prevent us from living in our socialist perfect environment. DEATH TO EVIL CAPITALISTS /S
Problems in The Peoples Utopian Paradise Of Obama?
Sounds as if some of these people aren’t quite ready to abandon their regressive bourgeois values and anti-socialist notions.
How can they expect to share what others have if they are not ready to share what they have with their needy brothers and sisters?
Sounds like they might need a little more time to get a tune-up at the Obama Socialist Indoctrination Centers.
The Humanzees needed a Humanzoo apparently...
If they're stacked like cordwood you can probably fit 16.
Of course those pigs aren't as attractive as cordwood, but they are far more dense.
Next they will apply a tax to support the safe house. Then raise the tax to hire a security force. Then the security force will clash with the twinklers and the tax will be increased because the security forces demand pension and health care. Then there will be a revolution.
But overall, I'd predict that it follows the script of Lord of the Flies pretty faithfully.
Is there going to be a LGBT tent also?
Are they demanding vibrators and dildoes?
how are they going to keep the transgenders out?
Are they posting the prices on the outside?
No, it was designed for the military to house troops in the field.
And articles like this should not be written by people who do not understand the basic precepts of grade school geometry.
She hasn't spent enough time in her parent's basement. Did they boot her out?
Shouldn't she still be in school, getting an education so she could get a good paying job?
If these females do not want to be raped, murdered or ahem, taken advantage of, what in the blazes are they doing sleeping outdoors? I hope they don't forget to lock the door to their tent. Women have never murdered women. NEVER. 30 women in one tiny tent should be quite interesting. LOL Kumbaya.
Maybe the FEMA camps are built for these types of people.
Bloomberg is a Muslim butt kisser billionaire who probably enjoys the multi-cultural “progress” of American women being raped at will in the city park.
I think he’s planning a third party run for president. He’s a disgusting excuse of an American.
Maybe it's a high-rise, but how many stories?
Not allowed. That would require "working" aka physical labor for pay. They want freebies.
Will Chaz Bono be allowed in the Womyns Tent?
Michael Moore has bigger breasts than most of these womyn.
Will he be allowed to sleep in the Womyns Tent?
Is womyn-womyn sex permitted in the Womyns Tent?
If no male-female sex is allowed in the Womyns Tent will they set up a separate “Pleasure Tent” on the off chance that one of these females might not be a lesbian?
Some laws demand that males-who-think-they-are-womyn be allowed to use the womyns rest rooms. Will they also be allowed to sleep in the Womyns Tent to protect them from the brutish males-who-are-really-males?
That's just the ground floor. It's a 30 story tent. :)
target rich environment.
who got murdered?
It’s most likely the Lesbian Encampment. They could be sleeping on each other to “save space”. The predators will just be women this time around.
So they’re segregating?
Note: We don’t need “safe houses” to protect females at TEA Party rallies.
