Letter To The NYPD On Evicting The Protesters From Zuccotti Park

6183994286_7707032ecbAs of now, it appears that the forced removal and/or arrest of Occupy Wall Street protesters at Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s behest has been postponed. Via n+1, an open letter to the police concerning their possible marching orders:

Last night, we learned that because of the complaints of Brookfield Properties, the company that owns Zuccotti Park, Mayor Bloomberg has ordered the Occupy Wall Street protesters to remove themselves and their supplies from the Park at 7 AM tomorrow. If the protesters don’t leave, Bloomberg likely will order you and your colleagues to forcibly remove and arrest the men and women who have come there to protest the policies, politicians, and financial leaders responsible for the continuing economic crisis. As concerned citizens, we ask you not to follow this order.

Bloomberg and Brookfield Properties claim that the protesters must be removed in order to clean the Park. Anytime thousands of people assemble in a small space, it is not easy to keep things neat. The Occupy Wall Street protesters, however, have shown their desire to maintain a safe and sanitary environment. They have organized sanitation and medical teams to remove trash, clean blankets and sleeping bags, and treat the sick and injured …

        Wow that’s sad … the intellectual leaders of OWS get rich from Mastercard, Wells Fargo and GE while the foot soldiers get an eyeful of pepper spray.

        If I were one of the foot soldiers I’d stop working for free on a mobile marketing stunt to benefit of Joe Biden and the Mastercard Corporation. I’d volunteer for the Salvation Army. Not interested in volunteering for Mastercard. To each his own, though.

            Keep dancing puppet, Nancy Pelosi loves that little jig you’re doing. She’ll keep expressing solidarity with your protest as she votes for the Patriot Act, as she votes for Telecom immunity, as she votes for TAPR, as she cashes cheques from Wells Fargo and the Mortgage Bankers Association.

            Dance, puppet, dance! Your Patriot Act-voting, FISA-voting, TARP-voting leaders love that little jig!

            Don’t type, dance!

            DANCE!

    This has a hidden upside- the cops are so tired from beating protesters that they have no energy to beat their families.

      Any large-scale movement of the people will inherently garner support from phony establishment-propogating politicians as they see the benefit of aligning themselves with it, however this in no way discredits the movement itself, as long as the intent remains the same and these sham politicians are not allowed to hijack the operation.

        Keep dancing you puppets! They love watching you dance to their tune in the fake revolution. If you think the fake revolution is real, you won’t start a real one, after all. Dance! Dance!

          Rodale is right.

          You cant have a revolution of people giving hugs and singing.
          Also what is the crap with this 9% unemployment rate lie ?

          They have been saying 9% for the past 2 years now? that can’t be true. Bank of America laid of 30,000 more workers. and BB&T laid of a ton more because of the recent transition to computer imaging. not to mention the postal service laying off workers and hundreds of other huge employers.

          All of this is a lie to keep us happy and not asking questions.
          Well i am not a fucking moron . I can see the truth over the wool
