The patience of the 1% seems to be running out. Occupy Locations here and worldwide are being broken up by police, many in riot gear and some using pepper spray and other non-lethal methods to disperse the crowds.
I snarked on Saturday that the Mayors must have all read the Memo: EVICT Occupiers
Well, I guess they did chat:
Conspiracy theorists are going to love this one. In an interview with the BBC, Mayor Quan admitted that she discussed dismantling Occupy Oakland with Mayors from 18 other cities
Question: If police are successful in breaking up the camps, what next? Protesting 9 - 5 and weekends? We have to keep the pressure on because we are making a difference.
Anyway, I volunteer to keep this Eviction Report running so we can see the trends. I am sure I am missing some, if you hear of any other evictions, please drop a comment below and I will add to this compilation. Thanks. Also some questions are arising.
Are there enough evictions to see a trend? Is there enough police brutality to see a trend? There have been four deaths in/near Occupy camps this week. These are being cited as reasons for closing the Occupy Camps: Portland, Oakland, Vermont, and Salt Lake. Could this be happening elsewhere, too:
Sad Day for America and the World. Seriously, how much would it have cost for Bloomberg to provide a few NYPD to Protect Liberty Park. But no, the 1% can't have the American Dirty Laundry exposed to the entire world. Well, OOPS, Mayor B. The whole world watched your Thuggery and disregard for peoples personal property.
Shame on the Mayors of America and the 1% they work for.
As veterans and their supporters march in downtown, police are distributing eviction notices to campers at Occupy Oakland. The move comes one day after a man -- whose name has not been released by police -- was shot and killed after an apparent fight near the Occupy Oakland tent city. The mayor and other city leaders are stepping up calls for the camp to disband.
6 p.m. Mayor: Occupy Oakland 'risks are too great'
Campers are wadding up and tossing out the eviction notices they were served earlier, while Mayor Jean Quan defended issuing the notices.
Occupy Salt Lake has been given 24 hours to vacate the camp.
"The body of a man was found today around 10am in a tent with a camp stove and a syringe," organizers said on their Twitter account.
The Police Chief said that was one death too many. Keep in mind that Occupy Salt Lake is in Pioneer park where the homeless have been hanging out for years. There is a homeless shelter across the street.
