OWS Update From Reclaimed Zuccotti Park [Video]

OWS Update From Reclaimed Zuccotti Park [Video]

A few days ago, we reported that the police barricades holding Zuccotti Park hostage had been removed, and several hundred jubilant Occupy Wall Street protesters were again attempting to occupy the public place that birthed the international movement.

The OWS protesters were evicted from the park back in mid-November due to the City’s claim that the encampment had become “a health hazard,” but after the courts ruled in favor the protesters, they have slowly being making their way back to the epicenter of the protest.

Watch below as Goldie, an OWS activist, gives RT America report on the state of the reoccupation.

And before anyone might shed a tear for the "owners" of Zuccotti park, please know they're making money as the get ready to log off ancient, old groth forests on Cortez Island in British Columbia.

Did you notice that the commentator fixated on calling the action of the courts "intimidation?" Goldie did not state that it was intimidation, yet the commentator, at the end of the interview, insisted on calling it that.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, OR PROHIBITING the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO PEACEABLY ASSEMBLE, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." - 1st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, ratified 12/15/1791

Shame that the Mayors that ordered these people out didn't read that part of the Constitution.

Glad that the superior court judges have.

Mike C. It is greed when it begins to deprive others.

Um Linda the free market worked in this country when we had one. But we have been slowly moving away from a free market for the last 100 years or so.

Now the new super power China is moving to a free market. As we fail they rise.

Do these OWS people even know what the problems are in this country?

It's not really the 1% that is the problem, it's more like .01%, the ones that control the banking cartel and the FED. And the corrupt politicians that work for them.

so linda, it's not greedy that you want some of others peoples wealth?
I worked my way through college, got my MBA at night while working, drove old cars, except for a house never owed anything at the end of the month, paid off every bill in total when due. My first house was a one story 2 bedroom, 1 bath.
I do not shop at wal mart. I still work a second job refereeing and invest those fees.
No, you can't have one penny of mine just because I have more stuff than you.
