Occupy Wall Street Evicted from Zuccotti Park

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Protesters at Occupy Wall Street's encampment in Lower Manhattan were awakened by sound cannons overnight Tuesday as police in riot gear moved in to clear the park. After nearly two months occupying Zuccotti Park, protesters were ordered to leave the park and told they could return after it had been "cleared and restored." WNYC reporter Alex Goldmark has been in Lower Manhattan overnight observing what transpired.

Zacatti Park is not a private space, it is a public park owned and operated by a private company in return for millions of dollars worth of tax abatements and zoning law "bends". It is required to be open to the public 24/7 by agreement and law.
