Tarak, great to see you on the list!
For those who don't know him, Tarak's a SERIOUS activist and IMO it's worth paying close attention to his suggestions.
PS I too like the cleanup brigade/ring the park idea!

Have to admit, this is creative.

Here's my proposed idea to respond to Bloomberg/NYPD's proposed "cleanup" of the park:
Operation #wallstcleanup
Tonight, and all day tomorrow, all campers/supporters should reach out to friends/family/anyone to donate or purchase brooms, mops, squeegees, dust pans, garbage bags, 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, Thursday 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, we'll march with brooms and mops to Wall Street to do a massive #wallstcleanup march, where the real mess is!

What do we think??
