Late Monday night, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg instructed NYPD officers to evict Occupy Wall Street demonstrators from their encampment at Zuccotti Park. Police in riot gear raided the protest at around 2:00am Tuesday morning, forcibly removing protesters and volunteers and destroying their personal property.
Bloomberg was reacting to continuous requests from the owners of Zucotti Park, Canadian property giant Brookfield Asset Management Inc., to have the Wall Street Occupiers removed.
Faced with its own possible eviction, Occupy Vancouver stands in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, as well as many other Occupy sites currently under threat of eviction.
Along with hundreds of other Occupy movements for a Global 'Day of Action', Occupy Vancouver protesters will march on and 'Occupy
Brookfield!' at the company's Vancouver offices in a show of solidarity with Occupy Wall Street.
Occupiers will march on Brookfield’s offices tomorrow afternoon (Thursday, Nov 17) once at 12:30pm and then again at 4:00pm.?
