Occupy Wall Street's legal counsel, Wylie Law of NYC, is continuing to contest the ban on tarps and tents.
According to Gawker today: " Brookfield never wanted the protesters there in the first place but apparently NYPD convinced them to. Now Brookfield's patience is finally running out: The WSJ reports they just posted a bunch of new rules aimed squarely at the protesters: No camping gear or putting "personal property on the ground."
NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne says he's wary protesters are editing video to make police look bad.
Several websites are now publishing contact information for Brookfield Properties and urging the public to politely contact them in support of OWS and request that they let the protesters remain in the park.
