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.
