In addition to the plans already put forward, the more reasonable we sound to the world the better our case will be. A message approved by the GA that, "We welcome the cleaning crew and would cooperate with them to let them do their maintenance, if not accompanied by the police," and widely disseminated, would help the world see he difference between cleaning the park and clearing the park. I cannot be there tonight to put this forth at the GA, so if anyone lies the idea please put it to the assembly if you can.
Also please have a backup plan in case the %$#@% hits the fan.
Has this been approved by the GA yet? I like it but it needs to be
carefully thought through and people need to be 100% nonviolent. Of
course there will be provocateurs.

Great idea and great message! Thanks Justin!
Liberty Square is way cleaner than most of the streets in New York. It
is really pathetic that he would use cleaning as an excuse when most
of the streets of New York are filthy and disgustingly cluttered with
garbage bags that seem to never be picked up.
Make lots of creative signs that point out the irony in this!
