This was not to be the end of the day's harassment by police. Cpt. Greene sent his officers into the area to take protesters property and to have protesters move their stuff on two other occasions during the evening.
At 6 in the evening officers came through telling protesters that they were obstructing pedestrian traffic with their property, including two individuals who were clearly out of the way of foot traffic in an indention between the church fencing and the backside of the subway entrance.
The two refused to move and a crowd of protesters had formed around them demanding to know the specific code violation police were claiming they violated.
Police couldn't answer the question even after speaking on the phone to their superiors and eventually left the two alone.
