    • When Peace & Police Collide: A Love Story

      Here are videos and images from the #occupywallstreet demonstrations which began in the financial district of NYC on Sept 17, 2011 and continued til Nov 14. Demonstrators are protesting a financial and political system wherein those with the most power and wealth secure these to themselves through crooked politics, monetary manipulation, police and military hegemony, and exploitation of the poor and marginalized. Most of this video was taken during what might be considered a police riot that occurred on Saturday, Sept 24, 2011. The demonstrators were marching peacefully from Liberty Plaza in the financial district to Union Square on 14th street. Violence erupted as police tried to (violently) pacify the crowd. I did not shoot any of the video myself, I found it all on youtube. I've curated them in such a way that they tell the story of what happened when peaceful demonstrators in NYC were confronted by NYPD (or perhaps it's NYPD that was confronted by a radical movement of peace?) And all to the tune of Aerosmith's Eat The Rich. Enjoy!

            6/14 around 11pm and onwards. Jackhammer drilling at 225 Liberty St, aka 2 World Financial Center. Drilling ongoing from May 22 and only at night as best I can tell. Audio recorded using the Voice Memo app on the iPhone, from my window which is over 500ft away from source, The still is an email acknowledgment of the complaint from 311. Noise code for after hours work? No more than 10 decibels above ambient noise levels when measured 15ft away from source. On 6/13, I requested the Department of Buildings to prohibit jackhammering from 9pm to 7am, but DOB did not acknowledge this email or the request. Very helpful till that point. The Dept of Environmental Protection (@NYCWater on Twitter) said they would send an inspector. They did not say they would enforce the noise code. From their reluctance to act on numerous complaints and recordings previously posted here, it appears the DEP and DOB have deliberately chosen (or ordered) to turn a blind eye to Brookfield Properties and allow them to continue violating the law at the expense of residents in the area. Both DOB and DEP have the power to STOP the late night noise from continuing, but have chosen to allow it to continue.

              Jackhammer recorded from over 50ft away from source using the Voice Memo app on the iPhone. The stills are of the locations where the recording was made. Recorded June 11, 7:28pm. Department of Buildings said it found work at site in accordance with issued permit but will not say if permit allows Zuccotti's Brookfield Properties to exceed noise levels allowed for after hours work - 10 decibels above ambient noise level when measured 15ft from the source. Jackhammering has been going on for over two weeks now in the middle of a residential area, apparently only at night as there seems no evidence of it during the day.

                      Occupy Wall Street activist Cecily McMillan suffered a seizure when New York City police officers pulled her from the crowd and arrested her as hundreds attempted to re-occupy Zuccotti Park on Saturday, to mark sixth months since the launch of the movement. In her first television interview since her arrest, McMillan says she has decided to speak out because of an outpouring of public support. "I have received so many emails, Twitter messages and phone calls. People are just horrified about what happened to me." McMillan has a black eye and her body is covered in bruises, at least one in the shape of a handprint. She says she was not allowed to contact an attorney while she was taken to the hospital and transferred to a jail cell along with some of the 72 other detained protesters. Facing charges of police assault and obstructing governmental administration, she was released Monday after a judge denied a request that her bail be set at $20,000. McMillan is northeast regional organizer for Young Democratic Socialists of America, and a graduate student at the New School for Social Research. We're also joined by Meghan Maurus, McMillan’s attorney and mass defense coordinator at the New York City chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.
