Congratulations Bloomberg, for allowing these shitbags to pollute your city even more.
After Mayor Bloomberg briefly visited (and check out the video) the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park last night, his office released a statement formally ordering the protesters to cooperate with sanitation workers who will be dispatched to clean the park on Friday. “The cleaning will be done in stages,” the announcement reads, “and the protesters will be able to return to the areas that have been cleaned, provided they abide by the rules that Brookfield has established for the park.” But the demonstrators, who have been occupying the park for almost four weeks, aren’t buying it.
Instead, they’re going to clean the park themselves. Their declaration reads:
“On Wednesday/Thursday, all campers/supporters should reach out to friends/family/anyone to donate or purchase brooms, mops, squeegees, dust pans, garbage bags, power washers and any other cleaning supplies to be collected at sanitation. The sanitation committee should move full-speed ahead on purchase of bins allocated by consensus at GA.After General Assembly on Thursday, we’ll have a full-camp cleanup session. Sanitation can coordinate, and anyone who is available will help with the massive community effort! Then, Friday morning, we’ll awake and position ourselves with our brooms and mops in a human chain around the park, linked at the arms. If NYPD attempts to enter, we’ll peacefully/non-violently stand our ground and those who are willing will get arrested.”
They’re going to clean the park themselves. Uh huh. And I’ve got a big fucking bridge right down the road from them for sale….cheap.
The park is now as filthy as the “occupants”. The city will have to call in a fumigator to de-louse the area.
If you think the communist/anarchist squatters are going to “peacefully/non-violently” stand their ground, just wait until the cops have to forcibly remove the grimy pigs.
It seems unlikely the city will go along with this compromise. Brookfield Properties, which owns the park, recently sent a letter to the NYPD explaining, “Brookfield protocol and practice is to clean the park on a daily basis, power-washing it each weeknight, and to perform necessary inspection, maintenance, and repairs on a regular, as-needed basis. Since the occupation began, we have not been able to perform basic cleaning and maintenance activity, let alone perform more basic repairs. For example, if the lenses to the underground lighting have become cracked, water could infiltrate the electrical system, putting occupants of the Park at risk of an electrical hazard or causing short-circuiting which result in repairs requiring the Park to be be torn apart for rewiring.”
Basic repairs will be the tip of the iceberg. There’s no telling how badly the park has been contaminated and damaged until they evict the human garbage that has held the park under siege for over 2 weeks.
Brookfield, the company which owns Zuccotti Park, is distributing flyers to protesters today informing them that the western portion of the park will be closed at 7 a.m. Friday for cleaning, but the ‘Occupy’ assclowns are promising to “lock arms around the park tomorrow in defiance of the police”.
The official statement from ‘Occupy’:
Occupy Wall Street is gaining momentum, with occupation actions now happening in cities across the country. But last night Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD notified Occupy Wall Street participants about plans to “clean the park”—the site of the Wall Street protests—tomorrow starting at 7am. “Cleaning” was used as a pretext to shut down “Bloombergville” a few months back, and to shut down peaceful occupations elsewhere. Bloomberg says that the park will be open for public usage following the cleaning, but with a notable caveat: Occupy Wall Street participants must follow the “rules”. These rules include, “no tarps or sleeping bags” and “no lying down.” So, seems likely that this is their attempt to shut down #OWS for good. PLEASE TAKE ACTION: 1) Call 311 and tell Bloomberg to support our right to assemble and to not interfere with #OWS. If you are calling from outside NY use this number 212-NEW-YORK.
Come to #OWS on FRIDAY AT 6AM to defend the occupation from eviction.
I’d start ousting the little fucksticks by deploying the FDNY down to the park to flush them out with water hoses, full blast.
