Michelle Goldberg on the NYC Administration’s shortsightedness:

Thanks to anger over the raid, an anti–Wall Street demonstration planned for Thursday is likely to draw far more people than it would have otherwise.

“When the first news of the raid came, I said, I hope there’s a raid, because we did need to shake that park up,” says Mike Esperson, a 22-year-old from Queens who had been living in the park since the beginning. “I wasn’t satisfied with the status quo there. This is a great opportunity to start fresh.”

The Thursday demonstration, named N17, is an all-day thing (Facebook event here). 7am at Liberty Plaza,

3pm at the following subways:
Bronx: Fordham Rd, and 3rd Ave/138th
Brooklyn: Broadway Junction, and Borough Hall
Queens: Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Ave, and Jamaica Center Parsons Archer
Manhattan: 125th st, and Union Square
Staten Island: St George/Staten Island Ferry

and 5pm at Foley Square (Duane and Center Street downtown).

The enemy camps…
