The New York authorities have declared war on the Occupy movement and in the early hours of Monday morning the police attacked the movement in Zuccotti Park.
The media were forcibly kept away while the police demolished the camp, batoning people indiscriminately. This attack comes hard on the heels of the police demolition of the Occupy Oakland camp in California.
But as one person tweeted from Zuccotti Park: 'You can't evict an idea . We will grow stronger.'
