‘Democracy Now!’: Inside the Zuccotti Park Raid

Posted on Nov 15, 2011

Around 1 a.m. on Tuesday, New York City police forces rolled up to Occupy Wall Street’s Zuccotti Park encampment and started pushing protesters out and removing their belongings via dump trucks. “Democracy Now!” sent a camera crew to the scene and caught the confrontation on film as eyewitnesses gave their accounts of riot gear, pepper spray and arrests. Host Amy Goodman sets the scene in this clip from Tuesday’s broadcast.

          We support the Wall St. mob
Live in redone school bus. share cropper with eight children. Education from TV commercials. Wife is ex-pole dancer. Her father was a former dirt farmer. Both of us are Democrats. L.B. Johnson is our alter ego. Our ancestors came to America with hats in hands. We are born again mental slaves and trying to avoid the ghetto life.
Hobbies are fish’n and drinking. Medicaid saved our way of life with extra money for booze and idle time to enjoy the fruits of others. America is the land of milk and honey. Thank goodness for those tax payers of whom give us the good life, We love the Constitution and the rights to march for more bread from Uncle Sam.Further, two sons want to be lawyers and two want to be police officers. One daughter wants to be a firemen.One son wants to be a building inspector where the political graft is a Heaven on earth. Our motto is let the government do for us what we are too shifty-minded to do for ourselves My advice to the suckers of whom pay the taxes and fight wars is to study ruling systems via Machiavella’s ( PRINCE ). Bleed them for all it is worth. I belong to the global Interfaith movement and along with my peers.Religion and democracy is the going thing today. Imcidentally, my wife was expecting triplets before she hit the road.

@ OzarkMichael - after last nights melee in the park and streets of the city, the church freely opened its doors to the protestors.  That’s what I saw on live stream around 4 AM PST this morning.  It might have changed, though.  Yes, the right to occupy IS sacred grin - TheEnd

I am not sure its true, but I hear the evacuated protestors marched to a church and cut their way into its adjacent empty property.

The Right to Occupy is sacred, apparently.
