Bloombergs Beware! Zuccotti Park is Everywhere!!!

19 11 2011

After weeks of organized police crackdowns on the occupy movement across the nation, and after the violent eviction of peaceful occupiers at Zuccotti Park, the question was posed: do we have the resolve to carry on?

Thursday night was the answer. It was a singular affirmation that the nintey-nine percent has staying power. That in the face of evictions and outright police brutality, we shall overcome. It was a turning point.

It kicked off in the morning (7am) when between several hundred to two-thousand occupiers attempted to march on the New York Stock Exchange. The March was blocked at every point and over 200 protesters were arrested. However, in spite of this a blockade of the NYSE ensued at all entry points and many Wall Street workers were unable to go to work.

Later, around 3pm (New York time), Protesters converged upon the subway system of all five burroughs of New York.

Here’s a list of the stations occupied by #OWS…

At 5pm, the occupiers at the subways, as well as those at Liberty Square began to march to Foley Square. The fascist NYPD estimated that 32,000+ converged upon the Square before marching across the Brooklyn Bridge in a festival of lights.

Solidarity actions also took place across the United States and the world.
