NY Times: Cleanup of Zuccotti Park Is Postponed

Updated, 11:06 a.m. | The cleanup of the Lower Manhattan park that has been occupied by protesters for nearly a month was postponed Friday shortly before it was supposed to begin, averting a feared showdown between the police and demonstrators who had vowed to resist any efforts to evict them from their encampment.

But sporadic clashes between protesters and the police erupted anyway when demonstrators started marching through the winding streets of the financial district after learning that the cleanup had been called off. At least 14 were arrested, the police say.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, in a radio interview on Friday morning, sought to make it clear that the the decision to postpone the clean up was made by Brookfield.

He said that the company made its decision after receiving a flurry of threatening phone calls from elected officials.

YES!

“Hey you jammers, dreamers, patriots and revolutionaries out there.
Our occupation of Wall Street is less than two weeks away … do we have it together?
The perpetrators of the massive financial fraud have been allowed to  slip quietly from the scene and continue business as usual. Our elected  representatives in Washington have become so tightly intertwined with  the financiers and bankers that public accountability has all but  vanished.
#OCCUPYWALLSTREET is  all about breaking up that cosy relationship between money and politics  and bringing the perpetrators of the financial crash of 2008 to justice.
On September 17, 20,000 of us will descend on Wall Street, the iconic  financial center of America, set up a peaceful encampment, hold a  people’s assembly to decide what our one demand will be, and carry out  an agenda of full-spectrum, absolutely nonviolent civil disobedience the  likes of which the country has not seen since the freedom marches of  the 1960s.
From our encampment we will launch daily smart mob forays all over  lower Manhattan … peaceful, creative happenings in front of Goldman  Sachs; the SEC; the Federal Reserve; the New York Stock Exchange … and  maybe even, if we can figure out where they’re being held, at the sites  of Obama’s private $38,500 per person fundraising events happening  somewhere in Manhattan on Sept. 19 and 20.
Our strategy will be that of the master strategist Sun Tzu: “appear  at points which the enemy must hasten to defend; march swiftly to places  where you are not expected.”
With a bit of luck, and if fate is on our side, we may be able to  turn all of lower Manhattan into a site of passionate democratic  contestation – an American Tahrir Square.
We will do all this with peace in our hearts. Our unshakable  commitment to nonviolence will give us the spiritual strength we need to  inspire the nation and to ultimately triumph in the weeks and maybe  months of struggle that will unfold after September 17.

PS. Last week Anonymous endorsed #OCCUPYWALLSTREET with a video that attracted over 70,000 views. The Department of Homeland Security has warned the nation’s bankers to be prepared. Corporate owned media is taking notice. Yesterday, a columnist for MarketWatch.com posted a rousing portrait of what may now unfold:
“Listen closely. This is not another  internecine political squabble. These revolutionaries are pushing  America back to its roots. You sense they’re drafting a new Declaration  of Independence, driven by the same powerful motivations as the 57  original signers who wrote: ‘Whenever any form of government becomes  destructive … it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,  and to institute new government.’ Back in 1776 King George III was the  destructive force far away. Today greed is the corruptor, from within.”
S17 occupations of financial districts are also being planned in Milan, Madrid, Valencia, London, Lisbon, Athens, San Francisco and hopefully many other cities still to be announced. S17 could well  be the catalyst that ushers in a new global economic order.”~straight Copy-pasta from Adbusters.org «<Check out MORE there))

I left my warm, studio apartment to have coffee with a friend, wearing  my waterproof boots, fluffy down jacket, wool hat, and oversized scarf I  had gotten as an early Christmas present from my girlfriend.  The  snowstorm that morning was the beginning of the coldest winters New York  had seen in over 20 years.  I hurried to the park that’s between our two  tiny apartments, knowing that I would get some beautiful images of the  new snow.  This was the only picture I took that day.
