NYPD arrests at #OCCUPYWALLSTREET protest - Tuesday 20 September
Details are still somewhat unclear, but it appears that several more OWS occupiers were arrested this morning as police stormed the camp and began to dismantle the tarps and tents that were erected in an attempt to shield occupiers from the oncoming rain. This video demonstrates a marked increase in the police department’s aggression in this latest encounter.
According to reports, at least one occupier was injured when they were slammed down on the sidewalk, breaking their teeth.

UPDATE: The media centre at the camp sends the following message via FB:
“We are vulnerable now. We need more bodies and more lawyers now. Deep concern that the police may attempt to remove us. Please spread the word now…”
Alright guys. They need us. Start spreading the word not only on here, but everywhere else. On the internet and IRL. Please. I’d seriously go there myself, but I have no way of getting there. The only thing I can do is spread the word. I ask you to please, do the same thing. It’ll only take ten minutes for you to spread the word in every possible way you can. It’s not going to make you look looney. You can’t look crazy just by spreading facts and providing the facts to people. Spread the word and make everyone aware, please.
