Judge Says Occupy Wall Street Can Come Back With Tents!

| Filed under: Politik

Occupy Wall Street Corporate American Flag New York City Protest Bankers

In case you don't know what we're talking about, Mayor Bloomberg deemed the state of Occupy Wall Street a health hazard that needed to be cleaned up. So in went the hoses!

Bloomberg said the protestors could come back without their camping equipment — which would basically kill the 24/7 protest.

But thanks to OWS' legal team, a judge has issued a temporary restraining order preventing the City or Brookfield Properties from refusing entry to anyone coming back with tents or camping gear.

So now the protestors are marching right back in — tents in one hand, MacBooks in the other!!

There will be a hearing later today which could end the movement once and for all (at that location anyways), but we have a feeling the 99% isn't done yet either way.

    If people really want to have an effect on Wall Street, camping out and protesting is a stupid way to go about it. Stop shopping at all the major retailers. Look to the smaller, locally run businesses that offer the same products - maybe at a slightly higher price, but hey it's not going to those people on Wall Street that everyone seems to hate so much. People are stupid. They're out there protesting and yet they're playing with their iPads and wearing their Nike clothes.

    "So now the protestors are marching right back in — tents in one hand, MacBooks in the other!!" That sentence right there shows the total hypocrisy of OWS protests.

    Re: Babycakes!!! – GOOD QUESTION. THE ANSWER: they are accomplishing exactly what they are accomplishing in life…absolutly nothing.

    Re: AmberWaves – In order to do that with any significant impact, they need to raise significant awareness and collective motiviation. They've been camped out on Wall St. just over two months and they've collectively been able to get people to withdraw thier funds from the banking institutions and deposit them into credit unions. BOA alone lost 600,000 clients.

    Re: chels468Re: chels468 – No. It doesn't. OWS is not about stopping innovation or rewarding people meritoriously for their efforts. Never has been, never will. It is primarily involved in ending corporate domination of our government.

    Re: Babycakes!!! – They are raising one heck of an amount of awareness, and people are listening. OWS has specific goals - regulation of financial industry; equitable taxation; and overturn of Citizens United (allowing corporations to be treated as individuals so that they may contribute unlimited funds to THEIR candidates' campaigns).

    Re: buck – So much for anyone considering you a deep thinker. You obviously don't even know the issues. Are you for the end of Social Security, how about Medicare? Are you for the ending of the Board of Education???? Are you for the continued shipping of jobs overseas and the gutting of the median income of the middle class. Many of the 99% are college kids who come out of college with $50,000 of debt and no job prospects. You need to know what is going on in the world outside of Fox News. All those fascists conservatives laugh at people like you and call you stupid for advocating for things that are to your disadvantage. Get a CLUE!!!!

    Re: AmberWaves – You should have a seat and read a book. Your simplistic critique of the 99% is an insult to your own intelligence or more to the point your lack of intelligence. You call them stupid and I guess that means you're smart. Yeah right…. At least they are raising the issue of the decimation of our national wealth by the 1% who's wealth has increase by 250% in the last 30 yrs while the 99%'s wealth has increased by 18%. Give me a break with your simple little critique. The people in the occupy movement nationally are on point, you're not.

    Re: Giant Foot – I am for the end of S.S. as we know it, its a failed policy. I am for the end of Medicad, its a failed policy. I am for the end of the Board of Education, its a failed policy. I am all for keeping jobs in the US and the way to do that is to stay competitive not to tax corporations out of this country. I'm all for college kids getting jobs out of school ( maybe next year they will vote the right way ) and there are plenty of jobs out there that they will not take or deam themselves too qualified and too good to do. It use to be that everyone started at the bottom , everyone except this generation. Still looking for the CLUE as to what makes the street people tick aside from a marxist society.

    Is it hypocracy or irony that the protester is taking a picture of that flag with the Apple logo on it with an iPhone? Just wondering.

    Re: Giant Foot – You should also go to theblaze.com and look up 'who supports occupy wall street' the list is so bad it will make you run further from them the the actual acts of murders, rapes, drugs, urination, defication, disease and violence. the list is so bad Hilton won't even allow the posting of there names on this site.

    Re: Bobsyerunkle – I'd go with irony . . . since nobody is trying to bring down apple. Just don't want apple (or any of the other corporations) electing our representatives.

    What they really need to do is get a leader or representative and have concrete demands that they want to see accomplish cause if they stay the same way its not really accomplishing much but destroying beautiful parks or old buildings. Plus these people aren't working so how can they say they want the money, you have to work for your money (I know I will get yelled at) there is job search issues but there is always a way to make money, you shouldn't be getting money for sitting on your a$$es



  15. 15

    no matter what you think of the protests, everyone has the constitutional right to peaceable assemble. our rights aren't conditional

    Re: jham – i feel like YOU are one of the guys camping in the park and responding to these posts from your laptop. And if you are, STOP SITTING AROUND AND GET UP AND DO SOMETHING! camping in the park is just garnering DISDAIN from the rest of the 99%…and ALSO, the way OWS treating the small business owners around that area is HORRENDOUS! enough is enough!

    Re: J.rose6 – Don't know much about OWS, here in LA there is a similar movement. But the jobs issue is a real one, I was laid off after 20+ years and my job sent to India. There is also age discrimination (I am 60). So it is not so simple.
