The Attack of the Flea Party
Less than forty-eight hours after an early morning police raid on Zuccotti Park, Occupy Wall Street protesters are warning city officials to expect their biggest demonstration yet. A planned ‘day of action’ on November 17 has prompted the mayor’s office to prepare for ‘tens of thousands’ to descend on Wall Street tomorrow.
But amid the voices proclaiming the movement to be a peaceful one, others are threatening widespread violence In a video posted on YouTube after the eviction, an incensed man in the crowd, surrounded by placards proclaiming ‘We are too big to fail’ and ‘Stop wars, make jobs’, yells out: ‘On the 17th, we’re going to burn New York City to the ground!’
Later in the video, he exclaims: ‘No more talking. They’ve got guns, we’ve got bottles. They’ve got bricks, we’ve got rocks… in a few days you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.’
Elsewhere, a middle-aged woman is videotaped being handcuffed by police, the crowd asking for her name and asking police why she’s been arrested. Others beat drums, clang the barricades and chan, ‘Who’s park? Our park? Who do you serve? Who do you protect?’ while sirens blare in the background. source – Daily Mail UK
