Occupy This Statue: 24-year-old Dylan Spoelstra (who’s gotten some press from Bloomberg for his role on Occupy Wall Street) climbed a statue early this morning, promising not to come down unless Mayor Michael Bloomberg resigned. After a couple hours, he relented. ”He’s not the sharpest knife in the draw,” said another protester, Pat Griese. “He didn’t seem drunk or high to me. He just seemed a little off.”

The city, which claims it’s acting in the interests of the company that owns the park, has put the ball in Brookfield’s court. Despite the company and city backing down, there have been violent clashes between the police and protesters today. source (viafollow)
