If the mayor and Wall Street think this is just about a park, then they don’t have clue about what’s next. — Michael Moore

It’s too late. Tens of millions of Americans won’t let the Occupy Wall Street momentum stop. They want the banks stopped and they want their America back. — Michael Moore

Phase Two of this massive, nonviolent MAJORITY movement will now commence. Wall St will wish they had just left it alone in the park. — Michael Moore

I urge you to call the 1st precinct in New York at 1-212-334-0611 to demand that NYPD stops their attacks on Occupy Wall Street protesters. — Bianca Jagger

Last night NYPD targeted Occupy Wall Street, the area was sealed off, journalists were denied access, local residents were locked in their apartments and not allowed out, even news helicopters were not allowed to fly overhead.

Occupy Wall Street: New York police clear Zuccotti Park

Protesters were not deterred and vowed to return. A temporary injunction was granted allowing them to return, but in a blatant contempt of court, the New York Mayor and NYPD have ignored the injunction.

Is this the form of democracy the houseboy in the White House wishes to export? Has his Wall Street backers whispered in his ear, enough is enough, do you not want us to fill your campaign coffers?

A call out has gone to local churches to follow the example of St Paul’s and work with the protesters.

Today Occupy London Stock Exchange marched to the US Embassy in London to protest the police brutality. They found a police cordon and only those with US passports allowed through.

Last night was the Lord Mayor’s Banquet. Peaceful protesters were attacked, seven were arrested. Their bail conditions that they may not be within the City of London means they have to leave St Paul’s in-the-Camp, but fortunately Finsbury Square is not in the City of London.

Police use unprovoked force against peaceful Occupy London campaigners

St Paul’s in-the-Camp held a feast for the poor.

On Sunday private security evicted people from St Paul’s who wished to attend the Remembrance Sunday service, including an Iraq war veteran.

On Guy Fawkes night, police kettled people from the camp who tried to join the Jarrow March.

Guy Fawkes night

St Paul’s learnt the error of their ways and are working with the camp, but this message has not got through to clergy at other cathedrals who are repeating the same mistakes made by St Paul’s.

Church support for camps is tested by protesters’ conduct

The City of London are rumoured to be re-instating their legal action against the camp. The City of London broke off amicable talks with the camp.

Occupy London faces renewed eviction attempt

Mayor Boris calls on the judges to have to courage to clear St Paul’s in-the-Camp. He seems to forget, as does the City of London, that we live in a democracy, which means the right to protest, not the right to be for sale to the highest bidder.

Boris calls for judges to have the courage to remove ‘crusties’

And by the way Boris, if you troubled to visit the camp rather than talking out of your arse, you would see that it is not obstructing the highway!
