Our six-month anniversary started off so nicely, with a march around Wall Street and then people talking, dancing, and singing in the park. Then a great General Assembly.
Then the NYPD decided the park was closed. We sat down and soft-locked. They came in and brutally arrested many people. Those of us not arrested marched up to Union Square, suffering more brutal arrests along the way.
