NYPD Raids Zuccotti Park At 2 A.M. And Clears Out Protesters

 

 

Hundreds of police officers in riot gear raided Zuccotti Park early Tuesday, evicting dozens of Occupy Wall Street protesters from what has become the epicenter of the worldwide movement protesting corporate greed and economic inequality.

About 70 people were arrested, including some who chained themselves together, while officers cleared the park so that sanitation crews could clean it.

Protesters at the two-month-old encampment were told they come back after the cleaning, but under new tougher rules, including no tents, sleeping bags or tarps, which would effectively put an end to the encampment if enforced.
