union square is occupied

After brutalizing Occupy Union Square late last night, NYPD again arrested Occupiers in Union Square around 4:30pm EDT for holding signs. In the latest of arbitrary rules used to harass Occupiers, NYPD now says banners are not allowed in the park. Members of the New York City Council were on hand denouncing police brutality. All supporters of Occupy Wall Street are urged to head to Union Square to show solidarity ASAP! Let´s show NYPD we aren´t afraid! Follow @OccupyWallSt, @OWSUnionSquare, and #UnionSq for updates.
