The Occupy Wall Street Cleanup

By Samantha Plotner

Thursday night, the Occupy Wall Street protesters faced eviction from Zuccotti Park, where they have been camped out for almost a month. Here is some documentation of the protestors’ efforts to clean up the park to avoid being thrown out the next morning. The morning brought good news, the New York Times reports. For now at least, the protesters will not be evicted from the park.

Everyone swept and collected trash, despite the rain.

The NYPD, lined up along the whole block.

Donated mops and brooms helped in the clean up effort.
