Occupy Wall Street builds tent as 'safe house' to protect female protesters
NY Daily News ^ | 11/4/2011 | BY Rich Schapiro , Kerry Wills & Henrick Karoliszn

Posted on 11/05/2011 7:37:55 AM PDT by tobyhill

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. “I’m 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.

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.

Have there been murders at the Occupoopers camps?

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.

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.

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.

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.

"Nan Terrie, 17, a protester from East Oakland Park, Fla"

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.

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?

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.
