|Police arrested more than 150 OWS protestors and cleared the park early this morning (Tuesday). Among those arrested was City Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez. Meanwhile, protesters are regrouping a few blocks away, planning their next move. Hours later, attorneys from the National Lawyers Guild obtained an order from the State Supreme Court affirming the protesters' right to return to the Park, and enjoining the police from taking further action. http://tinyurl.com/6ugtj6m Late in the day, a judge ruled that the First Amendment rights to the protesters did not extend to camping overnight.|
