Subject:   [september17discuss] Re: IMP: Bloomberg Statement on Moving in to "Clean" the Park
 

It might be good to come back at Bloomberg with a media blitz

denouncing this as an effort to rein in the movement, and offer a

counterproposal -- that we, if allowed proper equipment (such as

bins), will maintain the park. The encampment has faced a war of

attrition from the beginning: no trash bins, no port-a-sans, etc.

Bloomberg will use this as a wedge to begin to regain control and win

the war of public opinion. But, the balance of forces is still against

him. We need to take the initiative on this front.
