The 99 Percent has once again outmaneuvered Mayor One Percent.
Last week, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg hoped to use an unannounced “health and safety inspection” to shut down #OccupyWallStreet once and for all. With cold weather coming, the NYPD and FDNY raided Zuccotti Park and seized the fuel and generators used by the demonstrators to power their media center and kitchen, among other necessities.
To many, it looked bleak for the movement. But the Occupiers are a resourceful bunch. Not inclined to surrender, a group of them drove up to Boston where they acquired a bunch of bicycle-based generators.
