2) Call 311 (or +1-212-639-9675 if you’re out of NYC) and tell Bloomberg to support NYC’s right to assemble and to not interfere with #OWS.
Here’s script you can use to help you what to say, if you’re unsure what to say:
And here’s a petition you can sign as well, this will be taken to him tonight:
3) Come to #OWS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT @ Zuccotti Park to defend the occupation from eviction.
This is an emergency situation. Please take action and spread the word far and wide!
Occupy Wall Street is gaining momentum, with occupation actions now happening in cities across the world.
Last night Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD notified Occupy Wall Street participants about plans to “clean the park”—the site of the Wall Street protests—tomorrow starting at 7am. “Cleaning” was used as a pretext to shut down “Bloombergville” a few months back, and to shut down peaceful occupations elsewhere.
Bloomberg says that the park will be open for public usage following the cleaning, but with a notable caveat: Occupy Wall Street participants must follow the “rules”.
NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has said that they will move in to clear people and they will not allow people to take sleeping bags, tarps, personal items or gear back into the park.
This is it—this is their attempt to shut down #OWS for good!
For those of you who plan to help us hold our ground—which we hope will be all of you—make sure you understand the possible consequences. Be prepared to not get much sleep. Be prepared for possible arrest. Make sure your items are together and ready to go (or already out of the park.) We are pursuing all possible strategies; this is a message of solidarity.
