    there's not a real safety risk, but it does seem to me that there has to be some way to share the use of the park among people who want to protest, people who want to counterprotest, and maybe some people who just want to eat lunch outdoors.

      into the park and don't imagine too many people will be wanting to eat their lunch outdoors in the middle of the night, but even if they do, I imagine they'd be welcomed. The only counter protesters would be teabaggers and they've had their say for what now, three years? It's our turn now, Media hasn't listened to us or given us a voice so  now we are taking matters into our own hands.

        That lonely little acre of concrete in a deserted business district had no residential users before the Occupiers showed up.

        At this point, far more people have now been arrested for protesting Wall Street's mortgage fraud crimes than have been for committing and presiding over them.
