If you hold sticks they will beat you to a bloody pulp and it will be very difficult to see on video that you weren't fighting back.  But the sticks down.  I feel safe in saying this on the internet where they can see it, because they already thought of it, and they are hoping that you are holding sticks tomorrow, so they can charge you with assaulting police officers after they put you in the hospital.

Great, Sam! When/where are your trainings?

Specifically, it would be good to train in how to do this completely peacefully even with a large wooden broomstick in hand

In. Lets talk more about this logistically though. I have a few nvda trainings tomorrow and we can make them specific to this action. Got a blockades trainer that just landed at my apartment who can help me. There will be a contingent that wants to comply if they decide it's a reasonable request so we need to prepare for that too.

I feel like this is bait.

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??
