Occupy Philadelphia Day 41: Bloomberg Ignores The Law In NYC

Photo: OccupyPhiladelphia joins with Aramark union workers Monday afternoon to protest for fair wages and working hours for Aramark employees... New York City’s mayor Bloomberg sent the city police in to clear Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protesters under cover of darkness last night. The police trashed the occupation, destroying personal property including 5,000 books that were in the OWS library. Once again, we see Gestapo tactics employed against citizens on the streets of America. By early daylight, OWS lawyers had secured a temporary restraining order against Bloomberg allowing the protesters back into Zuccotti Park with their tents and sleeping bags. However, the city has defied the order as police have prevented protesters from re-entering the park. This is nothing less than official lawlessness on the part of Bloomberg and the police. It will only serve to strengthen the resolve of those of us determined to bring social and economic justice to America.
