Mayor Bloomberg evicting protesters?
You know, for park cleanup. Not for anything political or anything.
Occupy Wall Street demonstrators in Zuccotti Park have got to get out tomorrow morning. The billionaire mayor went to the park to deliver the news.
According to this notice, maintenance crews will be cleaning the park in thirds. While one-third is being cleaned, the other two will remain open, and it should take four hours to clean each section.
That sounds like it should ultimately affect the protesters only a little, but tacked on to the notice is a list of appropriate uses of the privately owned park.
Prohibited activities include:
Camping, erecting tents
Laying down on the ground, benches, sitting areas or walkways
Spreading tarps and sleeping bags
Storing personal property
Using bikes, skateboards and roller blades
Taking things out of the trash cans
MoveOn’s got a petition going to stop the eviction.
