Occupy Wall Street Calls for Day of Action

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Two days after Occupy Wall Street protesters were forcibly evicted from their symbolic home in Lower Manhattan's Zuccotti Park, the demonstrators have called for an international day of action. In what could be the largest mass protests yet, Occupy protesters plan to "shut down Wall Street," "occupy the subway" to spread their message to the five boroughs, and take over Foley Square, across the street from New York City Hall. Thursday is the two-month anniversary of the movement. You can watch a live stream of the protest here.

Nicholas Kristof: The Future of Occupy After the Evictions

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

A New York State Supreme Court judge ruled Tuesday to uphold New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's decision to evict the Occupy Wall Street protesters from their camp in Zuccotti Park. It was a setback that some worry the movement cannot recover from. Yet, protesters themselves remained upbeat yesterday claiming evictions will only make them stronger. But perhaps instead of quelling the movement as he intended, Bloomberg actually reinvigorated it.

In spite of a judge's ruling banning their tents and sleeping bags, several hundred Occupy Wall Street demonstrators returned to Zuccotti Park Tuesday night, after being removed by New York City police officers in a pre-dawn raid. After a day of legal wrangling, a state Supreme Court judge told protesters the city's concerns over health and safety justified banning overnight camping. First Amendment battles between city governments and protesters are taking place in courtrooms around the country — and sometimes, on the ground between police and protesters as well.

Hours after police in riot gear stormed Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan to evict Occupy Wall Street protesters, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg defended his decision to clear the encampment in a press conference.

After Ouster, Occupy Oakland Protesters Return

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Police in New York cleared the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park in the early hour of Tuesday morning, in what could possibly a coordinated effort to break up Occupy protests in Denver, Salt Lake City, Portland, and, notably, Oakland. The eviction in New York happened less than 24 hours after police in Oakland arrested 33 people while dismantling the Occupy camp in a downtown plaza. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan said the move was necessary because "the Occupy Wall Street movement itself is having a hard time controlling the encampments." Protesters returned to the camp Monday night.
