if they took it, and wrote down the name of one of our members of
camp, then that person probably has to be with me to pickup "their"
property.  I heard an officer ask for an ID on the nyc2 livestream
loop of this seizure of property.

does anyone at camp know if we gave a name?  did they tag the property
or issue a summons?

on way to studio/park in 15....

property regardless.

My impression is that there was no crime committed. As I understand
it, it was the Fire Department,not the Police Department, that made
the sweep. They did that supposedly to get rid of fire hazards.

In my experience, if it were a crime, the NYPD would have used it to
clear the park weeks ago. They are experts at finding ways to
obscure laws in the service of shutting down protests. Think
without a permit" as a pretense for arresting people at Critical
Mass, and ticketing the rest for not having lights and bells.

I am not a lawyer, and this in not legal advice, but it is my
opinion that streaming this would be legal and awesome.
