In the time I was getting ready to write a pissed off post about how the OWS protesters were getting evicted, they got a court order allowing them to stay.
Hundreds of police officers in riot gear before dawn Tuesday raided the New York City park where the Occupy Wall Street protests began, evicting and arresting dozens of protesters from what has become the epicenter of the worldwide movement.
Hours later, the National Lawyers Guild obtained a court order allowing the protesters to return with their tents to the park, where they have camped for two months. The guild said the injunction prevents the city from enforcing park rules on the protesters.
This isn’t going to be an easy movement for Big Business to kill.
Also, the article says Bloomberg knew about the court order, but decided to act against it anyway. That’s, um, well that’s something, right there.
