Police remove 300 Occupy Wall Street protestors from Union Square
From New York Daily News:
Cops rousted about 300 Occupy Wall Street protesters camped out in Union Square Park early Wednesday.
One person was arrested.
The demonstrators moved into the camp on Saturday, continuing the protest against economic inequality that started this summer in Zuccotti Park.
“The park will be closing as of midnight. If you don’t leave, you will be arrested,” an NYPD captain warned late Tuesday.
Dozens of cops — some in riot gear — surrounded the park and ushered the protesters to the sidewalk.
“I’m overwhelmed,” said Amanda DeRoller, 22, a protester from Harlem. “I don’t understand why we can’t be here. Usually the park is open 24 hours. Now they want us out, because Bloomberg says so. It makes no sense.”
