Occupy Wall Street has been occupying Liberty Square/Zucotti Park for over three weeks. Mayor Bloomberg and the owner of the park have threatened to force demonstrators to leave for a cleaning, and after the cleaning, to not allow any sleeping bags or personal items on the ground after that time. The demonstrators are basically being threatened with eviction early tomorrow morning. Eviction can be a touch subject to those who experience it, on both sides. while many sides with the family who are being asked to leave a place they called their home, due to a number of issues, whether it’s the inability to pay their rent, due to unforeseen circumstances such as a bill or life issues. Landlords are often left to try and pick up the pieces and finds other ways to pay their mortgages for their properties when they are faced with unruly and uncooperative tenants. If you’re a landlord and you are experiencing this, you might want to get in touch with someone similar to Express Evictions for legal help and advice.
The Chairman of The Working Families Party in New York sent out a memo decrying the Mayor’s decision. And, The Working Families Party did an action alert for a press conference, and for people to come gather at Liberty Square tomorrow at 6am.
The national Green Party website also featured a call from New York City greens to come to the park this evening, and help with the scrubbing and cleanup.
From the Green Party NYC website:
We need a hardcore Green Cleanup Team TONIGHT at Occupy Wall Street.
Mayor Bloomberg wants Occupiers to “temporarily” leave Zuccotti Park on Friday so NYC Sanitation can clean the park, but City Hall and the NYPD have proved they cannot be trusted to respect protestors’ rights or safety. So tonight (Thursday 11/13) the Occupation is staging a Community Cleanup to eliminate this pretext for evicting a peaceful demonstration.
Reach out to friends/family/anyone to donate or purchase:
-brooms, dust pans and mops
-squeegees and buckets
-power washers and any other cleaning supplies
Donations go to the Sanitation Station at Zuccotti Park.
Join us TONIGHT, after the General Assembly (which tend to end between 9pm and 10pm), so the Greens can join the full-camp cleanup session. Be seen being Green, and HELP US CLEAN!
