A New York State Supreme Court judge ruled Tuesday to uphold New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's decision to evict the Occupy Wall Street protesters from their camp in Zuccotti Park. It was a setback that some worry the movement cannot recover from. Yet, protesters themselves remained upbeat yesterday claiming evictions will only make them stronger. But perhaps instead of quelling the movement as he intended, Bloomberg actually reinvigorated it.
Nicholas Kristof, columnist for The New York Times, tweeted on Tuesday, "Could #Bloomberg be a secret Occupy Wall Streeter? He seems to have just revived the movement. #OWS." He discusses why he thinks the end of the Zuccotti Park is hardly the end of Occupy Wall Street.
