Puerto Rico warns Occupy Movement to clean up mess
Associated Press 2 hrs 26 mins ago
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) Puerto Rico officials threatened the island's Occupy Movement with legal action Thursday if its supporters do not clean up a public park they occupied for five months and abandoned suddenly this week.
The group has 48 hours to respond, said Mari Batista, director of San Juan's Sports and Recreation Office.
"The amount of garbage, waste and rubble left behind is impressive," she said. "They were supposedly defending the environment, fighting for a better Puerto Rico ... what they left behind is everything to the contrary."
At least five big trucks are needed to carry away the garbage left behind, including makeshift toilets, books, blankets, tents, tables and wooden crates, she said.

Only if that means getting free stuff.
Isn’t it funny how the collectivists are so willing to trash the public space? It is such a telling irony.
The Occupiers preach social enlightenment but then act like selfish pigs, while the Tea Partiers, who just want their individual liberty respected, make the effort to clean up after themselves. The pattern has been 100% reliable. I just think it speaks volumes.
“The amount of garbage, waste and rubble left behind is impressive,” she said. “They were supposedly defending the environment, fighting for a better Puerto Rico ... what they left behind is everything to the contrary.”
It happens everywhere they go.
Miguel Lozada, who once served as the group's spokesman but said he no longer does, said the movement split up several months ago following differences about its goals.
"I'm perplexed that this is the outcome," he said, declining further comment.
Sounds like ole Miguel Lozada is doin' the "OWS Dodge and Weave". "I know nuthin" sez Miguel.
These people are great advertisements for what not to be and for Conservatism.
