The Occupation

 ("Jolted, Wall St. Protesters Face Challenge for Future")

Secret meetings, failed negotiations, early morning raids and an end to the occupation. It makes for a fascinating read.

It is clear however that the idea born here reaches well beyond the grasp of any court order. It may well be, as was suggested in your companion story ("Beyond Seizing Parks, New Paths to Influence") that too much energy has been devoted to maintaining a presence at Zuccotti.

This movement is not tied to time and place, but to the goal of evicting the 1% from their seat of unbridled power. It is a daunting task that may be filled in the coming months with secret meetings and failed negotiations. Until the occupation by the 1% ends.
