buzzfeed:

Occupy Wall Street at Duarte Park in Lower Manhattan this morning. This is where a lot of protesters relocated after last night’s raid on Zuccotti Park.

  • A few hundred protesters
  • 30-40 police
  • BIG media presence
  • Counted 6 helicopters circling above!
  • Protester message focused on going back to Zuccotti Park (“We have lawyers down there right now!”)

Check this out: Timeline Of Occupy Wall Street’s Eviction From Zuccotti Park

Highly recommend their timeline. No commentary, just a bunch of images and tweets from last night and this morning.

I’m w/ a NY Post reporter who says he was roughed up by riot police as Zuccotti was cleared. He thinks violence was ‘completely deliberate.’
The New York Times’ Brian Stelter • Discussing some of the violence and roadblocks journalists faced last night when trying to cover the Zuccotti Park eviction. Journalists faced much trouble trying to tell a difficult story last night, as there are reports that they were kept long distances away and prevented from providing information to readers about what was happening in the cleanup. As Mediaite so eloquently put it, “Press badges apparently meant nothing.”

Unoccupied Zuccotti Park. Via Azi

Sure, it’s clean, but lots of people would prefer it messy.

This was one of the more depressing details from last night’s raid.

Liberate. Occupy. You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Meanwhile the movement gets a second wind despite catastrophic loss.

New York City is the city where you can come and express yourself. What was happening in Zuccotti Park was not that.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg • Offering a tough take on Occupy Wall Street this morning, after a long night in which police randomly showed up at the encampment’s door and gave protesters 20 minutes to vacate. The mayor seemed to imply with his statement that safety concerns trumped First Amendment concerns, which is perhaps a dangerous take on the law. source (viafollow)

It’s a Brave New World, people.

This is neat, the NY Times frontpage has a direct link to an occupy feed. With the arrest of a NYT reporter and with all of the problems that reporters are experiencing at the park, is this their version of flipping the NYPD the middle finger?

And to think, at first the coverage was so slow-going. Now the NYT is effectively giving the Occupy movement a huge bump: A link on the front page.
