Dispersing Occupy Wall Street?

An interesting development today as the City says the protesters will no longer be allowed to use tents, sleeping bags or other equipment in the park where they have been encamped up until now. I don't see how they are going to be able to maintain their 24 hour vigil there without such equipment. I didn't know that the park is privately-owned, which is why these regulations can be enforced. So, it looks like they may have to move to a public location... maybe Battery Park?

Anyway, here's a story with all the info about this: NYC Protesters Wary of Park Cleanup Plan

And here's a new poll:

  1. Well the park is technically privately owned but only under an agreement for full public access that was granted with the construction of the neighboring United States Steel headquarters.

    Not in a derogatory way, but I see the protest as a pimple. If you try to squeeze it, it could get infected and fester and turn really ugly. If you leave it alone it will come to a head and go away on its own.
