The expulsion of #occupywallstreet

Just reading a whole heap of blogging on how, acting on Mayor Bloomberg’s instructions the NYPD waited until the city was asleep to expel the #occupy protestors from Zucotti Park; of course there were mass arrests.

There were fears that all the books had been destroyed, but apparently even Bloomberg realises that being labelled a book-burner would be really bad PR – it has been announced that property from the park is being held so that owners can reclaim it. The only property photographed for the announcement is books.

An injunction against the city, allowing the protestors to return to the park, was issued within a few hours. Bloomberg has vowed to fight it.
