Thousands of pepole at Occupy Wall Street erupted into cheers early this morning when it was announced Brookefield properties was postponing the cleaning of Zucotti Park.
The cleaning, scheduled to start at 7AM, was perceived by many protesters as a ploy to evict them from the grounds. Last night, scores of volunteers took mops and brooms to the park in a plan to pre-empt Brookefield and city officials.
Thousands showed up at Zucotti early this morning before the sun had risen and practiced making a human chain to protect the park. They were ready for a confrontation with police and they were ready to be arrested.
