Forum Post: Occupy Trump Project: Looking for Volunteers for Direct Action

As one of the 500 or so "privately owned public spaces" in NYC, Trump's gilded nightmare enclosed consumer food court would be a prime spot for a small targeted demonstration. Trump's goons are notorious for preventing any forms of expression in their space--try to even having a tape recorder or take out a camera and they will stop you. The great thing about having a reasonable presence there is that we are completely complying with the letter of the law--which is "reasonable conduct" appropriate for public spaces anywhere in New York.

So I am looking for volunteers--preferably seasoned activists--to work with me on this. We have a high probability of getting arrested if we display a sign and pass out leaflets to tourists and refuse to move. This isn't even civil disobedience since we won't be breaking any laws.

Please contact me if you're interested. The thing is--we have to move fast. Already the city is engaged in rewriting our right to use these public city spaces as have been protected by the city for the past 40 years or so, because of the inconvenience caused to spaces which are customarily only used for "passive recreation" instead of healthy democracy!

why does anyone in the republican party think that by electing donald trump a freak reality tv show joke will turn this country around? Wasnt it clear the first time around that Donald tells his fans he is going to run for president to boost ratings? Wtf is wrong with the ppl in the USA? What have we come to...stop watching the apprentice, jersey shore, desperate housewives and get out there to DC, NY, Chicago and protest in front of the buildings that the 1% own

why isnt anyone occupying trump tower in Chicago? Did you hear what this prick said about Ron Lawl? RP turned down his request to appear on foxnews debate moderated by the A hole Donald. RP polite fully responded. thanks but no thanks. Donald wrote a public letter saying "Ron Lawl is a clown" Really? You a$$hole...the real circus act is Donald and his hair. Can you believe this rich prick wants to run for president?

Libtard, it's a public space. There's no trespassing law on public spaces during regular hours of operation. Trump is legally bound to maintain the space in exchange for receiving a zoning easement that allowed him to build a bigger building and make more cash per year. Reasonable conduct is therefore allowed on that property without a permit.
