Today will be the 28th day of demonstrations in the name of #OccupyWallStreet and while New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has advised the protesters that sanitation will be entering Liberty Plaza to clean up, the occupiers have plans of their own.
Protesters are organized a massive clean-up last night, after General Assembly, according to their Facebook page.
Today, protesters will link arms in a human chain around the park and refuse to let NYPD enter the park, then at 9 a.m., protesters will march to Wall Street with brooms and mops.
Read their statement posted on Facebook:
On Wednesday/Thursday, all campers/supporters should reach out to friends/family/anyone to donate or purchase brooms, mops, squeegees, dust pans, garbage bags, power washers and any other cleaning supplies to be collected at sanitation.
The sanitation committee should move full-speed ahead on purchase of bins allocated by consensus at GA.
After General Assembly on Thursday, we’ll have a full-camp cleanup session.
Sanitation can coordinate, and anyone who is available will help with the massive community effort!
Then, Friday morning, we’ll awake and position ourselves with our brooms and mops in a human chain around the park, linked at the arms.
If NYPD attempts to enter, we’ll peacefully/non-violently stand our ground and those who are willing will get arrested.
Afterwards, at 9am, we’ll march with brooms and mops to Wall Street to do a massive #wallstcleanup march, where the real mess is!
