Senator Adams, Civil Rights Atty. Norman Siegel and OWS Hold Press Conference About Possible Violations of NYPD Procedures During 11/15 Clearing of Zuccotti Park

 

    On November 20, Senator Eric Adams, Civil Rights Attorney Norman Siegel, and members of Occupy Wall Street (OWS) held a press conference to release a letter that they sent to Mayor Michael Bloomberg requesting answers to possible violations of NYPD procedures in regard to vouchering property which was confiscated from OWS protesters, and the alleged mishandling of the press.  It is the group's belief that during the November 15th retaking of Zuccotti Park, the City and NYPD violated several policies by removing property from protesters without issuing receipts, and preventing press access to the park.  Click here to view the news coverage.
