#OWS vs Bloomberg: Round 1

October 14, 2011

Occupy Wall Street had its first major victory on Friday after Zuccotti Park’s Brookfield Office Properties backed down from its threat to evict protesters “temporarily” so the park could be power-washed. The thinly-veiled attempt to expel the demonstration was met with an increase in the number of protesters at the park and a march to the Cipriani restaurant to deliver a petition signed by 310,000 people to New York’s Mayor Bloomberg who was attending a gala event there. Bloomberg reportedly snuck out the back and the clean-up was postponed by the deputy mayor only hours before it was scheduled to take place.
