Owners of New York City’s Zuccotti Park may be starting to get fed up with it being occupied.

Brookfield Office properties, the firm that owns the central location for the Occupy Wall Street protests, has released a statement claiming that they have not been able to properly maintain the park and that sanitation has become a growing concern.

“Because many of the protestors refuse to cooperate by adhering to the [park] rules, the park has not been cleaned since Friday, September 16th, and as a result, sanitary conditions have reached unacceptable levels,” said in a written statement by the property management firm.

Brookfield normally cleans and inspects the condition of the park every night which includes a power washing, landscaping, and trash removal. They haven’t been able to do so since the protestors have sent up a tent city as part of the protests.

“Basic rules intended to keep the park safe, open, clean, and welcoming to all visitors are clearly posted,” the statement from Brookfield reads. “These rules includes bans on the erection of tents or other structures, as well as the placement of tarps, sleeping bags, or other coverings on the property.

“Unfortunately, many of the individuals currently occupying the grounds are ignoring these basic yet necessary requirements, which interferes with the use of the park by others.”

“#BrookfieldProps says they can’t clean #LibertyPlaza. We’ll share our brooms if they want 2 help,” said one posting on the twitter feed @OccupyWallSt NYC.

Brookfield says that they recognize people’s right to peacefully assemble but that they are also obligated to ensure that the park remains safe, clean and accessible to everyone.

“We continue to work with the City of New York to address these conditions and restore the park to its intended purpose,” the statement continued.

In addition to the growing mess at the park, The NYPD has spent over $2 million in overtime to keep cops stationed at the protests, according to a public statement by Commissioner Ray Kelly made yesterday afternoon.

The NYPD did not immediately return requests for comment on Brookfield’s statement.

A woman tries to extinguish a smoldering body in Somalia, where God’s
perfect religion
inspired a suicide truck bombing that took 100 lives
and left over a hundred others literally burning in agony.   The targeted
victims were mostly students – among the country’s best and brightest.

First, here is the video #OccupyWallstreet wants you to see:

It looks brutal; the police are striking protesters with batons.

But what these protesters don’t want you to see is what happened seconds before that provoked the police response. In the video below, you can hear the protesters counting down and then rushing the police. At least one officer is struck in the head by a protester (@00:10). Another can be seen kicking an officer (@00:15). The police repeatedly order the protesters to “Get back” and they ignore the orders:

 

Occupy Wall Street  is set to create a perfect storm of leftist protest groups today in lower Manhattan to form its biggest march yet.

Unions, community organizers, and even more college students are swarming together at Occupy Wall Street on its 19th day. Occupy Wall Street organizers have already posted a game plan for today on their site:

“On October 05, 2011, at 3:00 in the afternoon the residents of Liberty Square will gather to join their union brothers and sisters in solidarity and march. At 4:30 in the afternoon the 99% will march in solidarity with #occupywallstreet from Foley Square to the Financial District, where their pensions have disappeared to, where their health has disappeared to. Together we will protest this great injustice.”

Those set to join in on the fracas today include the liberal group MoveOn.org, Working Families Party and United NY. The Chinatown Tenants Union and the Transit Workers Union have also signaled their intent to join the swelling marchers’ ranks. The Transit Workers Union alone has 20,000 members in the New York City area.

On top of that, the Occupy Wall Street organizers are calling for a 2PM walk out of college students across the United States. And the protest organizers are using Twitter and Social Media to rally protests in other cities.

Similar “Occupy” movement have sprouted up in Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Seattle, among others.

The Occupy Wall Street Movement has received criticism in the media for its lack of a clear message or definable goals beyond rage at Wall Street and general perceptions of injustice in society. Protest organizers claim it draws inspiration from the Arab Spring in North Africa and the Middle East. There are environmentalists, anarchists, and communists spread among the group.

But a muddled message certainly hasn’t slowed down the protest at all. And the labor unions could provide a major manpower boost, as well as on-the-ground organizational assistance.

President Michael Mulgrew of the United Federation of Teachers, the sole bargaining agent for 75,000 New York City public school teachers, has publicly endorsed the demonstrations, stating:

“The way our society is now headed it does not work for 99% of people, so when Occupy Wall Street started … they kept to it and they’ve been able to create a national conversation that we think should have been going on for years.”

The conversation is likely to kick up into a higher gear if there are mass arrests like the 700 this past weekend, or acts of violence or destruction break out.

One thing is for sure– It’s going to be loud and hectic on the southern tip of Manhattan today.
