A great Birthday present for me!
The threat is not over, but at least postponed….
From ABC News:
ABC News’ Greg Krieg reports from New York City:
City officials today postponed a cleanup of Zuccotti Park after earlier threatening to evict Occupy Wall Street protesters who have been encamped here. Jubilant protesters later poured from the park to the Wall Street area, some clashing with police. As many as 15 people were reportedly arrested for blocking access.
As the announcement was made via the “people’s mic” at 6:40 a.m., the crowd waved their brooms in triumph. Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office tweeted that Brookfield Properties, owner of the park, (and not the city) decided to postpone cleaning. The city was informed “late last night.”
