  •  The police are now moving in on Liberty Plaza (4+ / 0-)

    They are moved a large number of cops and cars along with orange netting on the perimeter of the park.  There are more people in the park right now than most of the week.

    This is very very frightening use of excessive police power.

    •  Currently 2K people in Liberty Park (5+ / 0-)

      If the police move in with force, this could be very ugly.  The media crew is removing most of their equipt. to prevent the police from taking it.

      The crowd is being briefed on what to do if the police use tear gas.  This is such a sad commentary on the state of things here in the US.

        No.  Just an objective revelation of the true nature of the plutocratic dictatorship.  A very positive development.  Exposing them for who and what they are is one of our primary tasks.
