The Occupy Wall Street movement is under attack. New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg just announced he's going to use the police to effectively end the occupation of Wall Street tomorrow morning by enforcing just-released rules prohibiting tarps, sleeping bags and "lying down" -- even as temperatures in New York City plummet.Daily Kos has provided the phone number for the Mayor's Office:
Can you sign our emergency petition to Mayor Bloomberg telling him not to interfere with Occupy Wall Street? We'll deliver the petition TONIGHT, first to the occupation, and then to City Hall. Click here to sign.
Americans are peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights to highlight the collusion between Wall Street and Congress to put most of our nation's wealth in the hands of a select few, leaving 99% of us behind.
Please call 212-NEW-YORK (212-639-9675), and tell New York City Mayor Bloomberg not to interfere with Occupy Wall Street.From MoveOn
Respect the protesters' First Amendment rights. Don't try to evict Occupy Wall Street."Zuccotti Park is the birthplace of the Occupy protests sweeping the nation and capturing the public's attention. It's where a community of committed Americans are standing up against Wall Street and the corporate capture of our democracy for the 99% of us trying to take back the American Dream.But tomorrow at 7 a.m., under Mayor Bloomberg's orders, the NYPD is coming to Zuccotti Park to kick the 99% protesters out. It's being done under the guise of "cleaning" the park, but new rules will mean the end of the occupation.2
