Pictures from Dec 17 Day of action…

Bishops join occupy in the attempt to take the churches park as a new public camp site and get arrested while doing so. Occupiers brought ladders to the march to climb the bars cases fence to the park and retired bishop proceed to be the first climbers to their own park. After which other protestors follow and all 35 get arrested.

Later on marchers were divided by the police and some decided to march to Time square for a G.A. Some remained till after while others returned to Zuccotti park awaiting more instructions. I followed a group that went down to One New York Plaza where I attended another meeting discussing another possible occupation of an undisclosed location. The meeting resulted in deciding against going on with the plans until further planning.
