One thousand riot-gear-clad New York police handed out eviction letters at 1 am this morning to allow a cleaning of Zuccotti. Bloomberg’s letter said occupiers can return but there will be no tents, sleeping bags, tarps or “similar materials.”
Bloomberg’s comments came shortly after the release of a New York state Supreme Court document that prohibits the City of New York from preventing the demonstrators re-entering the park.
