July 3, 2020. Returning to Occupy City Hall, found a disgusting shanty town, no longer quaint, just dirty; a mess.
Also, some new signs, “Do Not Film or take pictures of Occupy Faces”
This is for their SAFETY, they say, from police.
Also, new, no part of these public buildings or sidewalks has not been defaced. Occupy City Hall is befouled by graffiti.
The Mayor, sort of whimpered that this graffiti was unfortunate, and then: SILENCE.
PROFANITY was welcomed (of course)
The encampment was trashed.
Video Part 1 – Sitting a-top their old Mexican style “Vote Bus”, a cheeky singer serenaded the crowd with “My Favorite Things”. (definitely NOT what I expected) with a pithy new lyric, “Then I don’t FEAR so bad.”
Her song was followed by a rude speech to the NYPD officers standing-watch across Chambers St. FEAR! “You about to Lose your Job!” and “This is BLACK JOY!”
Fear the occupiers. For sure. Since this sign encouraged exposing personal info of the police officers.
The Occupy residents still don’t have much to do. They sit. lay around. (trying to stay dry since the rains were a deluge) That first week they very busy. painting. vandalizing. harassing. But, now. it was VERY quiet. Still plenty of food. and ice. and water. And someone is paying to have their laundry picked up and delivered. (wow)

Video Part 2. Watched these BLM thugs harass the cops who stood quietly against the trashed federal building. Fearless thuggery. They know they can be as rude and as a threatening as they like. DeBlasio said Hands Off. This is WRONG.
An appalling abuse of public property. Because they are “progressives”. Socialists. Marxists. So, what do New Yorkers do? To Fight Back? They are MOVING OUT! Especially the moneyed. Not just the regular folk who have lost their jobs. New York City is on its way to being another DETROIT.
Who would have thought this to be our future.
