OWS is Back!

Several news sources are reporting an undisclosed New York judge has ruled that Mayor Bloomberg had no legal right to evict the protesters. There is a restraining order against the NYPD until a trial can be held.

Mr. Bloomberg’s statement earlier this morning alluded to the park as being crime-ridden and a threat to public health. Everyone sees through your clever ploys, Mr. Bloomberg. History will not remember you kindly. I am told that the tents go back up as well.

Bloomberg’s statement:

“From the beginning, I have said that the City had two principal goals: guaranteeing public health and safety, and guaranteeing the protesters’ First Amendment rights. But when those two goals clash, the health and safety of the public and our first responders must be the priority.”

Michael Moore responds to Bloomberg’s eviction “The Mayor is afraid of Youtube” :

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

  1. It looks like New York is having the same problem Nashville did, but I have no doubt that OWS will prevail!
