    1.  A rape, to which local organizers were callous in their initial response, basically say "rapes happen all over the City -- why is the mayor focusing on us?"

    2.  They're now blocking ~1000 unions jobs from starting on a $50M construction project where they're now located, one that's going to improve a public park, handicapped access to public transportation, add a ice skating rink, etc.

    3.  Increased involvement of anarchists, whose messaging is scaring off longtime volunteers at the site.

      at the Pioneer Park OWS encampment, and the initial response was "well, we had 54 homeless people die last year..", implying "what's one more?" or something.

      Moderation in most things.
