Occupied today with OWS. Supported student takeover of Student Lounge above TDBank on 14th and 5th. Shut down 5th Avenue in the Village. "Bloomberg beware, Zuccotti Park is everywhere!" Witnessed atrocious police brutality- POLICE MOB RULED. The sounds of NYC were DEAFENED by hovering police choppers, multiple blocks of screaming sirens in unmarked cars with lights flashing; blocks of police vehicles, masses of riot cops. The noise came down from the sky and up from the street,and fueled the rage of the NYPD in riot gear, as well as the resolve of the 99%.
As of tonight, there were approximately 35,000 protesters, many of whom came out for the first time in support of the movement, expressing disdain for the tactics of the police and marching for the right to do so.
