Latest NY OWS Protest
When the Occupy Wall Street movement was setting up shop in Zuccotti Park last year, the FBI was already using counter-terrorism agents to investigate it, according to a report.
“It’s a popular event for the community, but given the conditions… we felt it was not a safe environment,” Linda Hanick of Trinity Church said.
A woman who was pepper sprayed during an Occupy Wall Street protest last year has filed a civil suit against the New York Police Department and the officer involved.
“Occupy is a different kind of movement because we’re not trying to work within the political system,” said demonstrator Emily Reynolds. “We’re trying to build people power and we’re trying to push from the outside.”
Monday will mark the one-year anniversary of the start of the Occupy Wall Street protests, but Occupiers are getting the celebration started early.
Jackie Barcliff allegedly forced the victim to the elevated level of Pier 15 park near the East River, raped her, and tossed her over the railing to the ground below, police said.
