A tour of Zuccotti Park (Part II)
In the week I’ve been here, the site of the occupation has changed considerably. There are now street signs (Bakunin Ave, Jefferson, Trotsky, etc.), there is a “Kids Safe Zone” and now almost everyone is sleeping in tents, rather than in sleeping bags with tarps pulled over. Anyway, here are a few more pics of the park.
Comfort station: offering everything from toothpaste, sleeping bags, and tarps to clothes.
The empathy booth advises on how to deal with problems in a non-confrontational manner.
The cigarette rolling station.
The anarchist booth.
The community rules. (Click on picture to enlarge.)
The kitchen, now with tarp cover.
Sanitation department. Lots of cleaning supplies: brooms, mops, buckets, etc.
There is now a children’s safe zone.
Lots of cool technology. There is a live stream of video and audio of the park. They also put up a twitter feed on a large screen via a projector, so we can read what’s being said at the General Assembly meetings.
The Occupied Wall Street Journal.
When the real Fox News shows up, much of the crowd chants, “Fox New Lies! Fox News Lies” I heard a couple people mutter something about tarring and feathering Geraldo Rivera when he came through.
