A year ago tonight, exactly, Occupy wall street was being evicted from their makeshift home in Zuccotti park.

This is from a post written by Babara Morril on that date a year ago:

In the hours since New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg sent in riot police to clear out Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park, stories of media suppression have been flying.
But this one quote from The New York Times really encapsulates Michael Bloomberg's respect for the First Amendment:

Rosie Gray, a writer for The Village Voice, recounted telling a police officer, “I’m press!” She said the officer responded, “Not tonight.”

We'll just hold off on all those pesky rights until it's more convenient. Or not.
At this hour, a hearing is being held on the temporary restraining order issued earlier this morning that allowed protesters to return to Zuccotti Park. An order that Mayor Bloomberg has ignored. Stay tuned.



I should add that, exactly one year later, the rolling Jubilee, an Occupy Wall street venture raised over $250,000 last night to cancel more than 5 million dollars of outstanding public debt for American citizens.
Looks like Occupy Wall Street is still going strong.
