UNM to kick (Un)occupy Albuquerque off campus

The University of New Mexico announced today that it will not renew (Un)occupy Albuquerque’s permit to protest during operating hours on campus.

The university says there were problems last week, such as a man threatening to stab protesters on Friday.

Check back here for updates as this story develops.

In last week’s news section, Carolyn Carlson reported that three city councilors—Rey Garduño, Ken Sanchez and Isaac Benton— publicly backed the movement. Alex Limkin, an Iraq War veteran, penned a column on why it’s part of the soldier’s oath to protect people exercising the First Amendment. And finally, Don Schrader made an appearance on our letters page to say that he’s the original occupier.

Our 99% speaks out about foreclosures today

(Un)occupy Albuquerque folks will be at Broadway and Cesar Chavez to educate people about stopping foreclosures. They’ll post up at 4 p.m. today and hang around during rush hour.

The movement was the subject of this week’s feature. In addition to an overall look at Burque’s 99%, reporter Andrew Beale cleared up some misconceptions.

Beale’s been following the camp and the protests since the beginning. He spoke with some of the demonstrators about their reasons for participating.

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.

Burque Occupied

The protest began at the U.S. Bank across from the mini APD substation in Nob Hill, but after police cars blocked the road, marchers decided to move so they would be more visible. Officers followed the demonstrators as they walked east from Dartmouth and blocked off every intersection they came to.
