A few hours before the official clean up of Occupy Wall Street’s headquarters, protesters continued to scour Zuccotti Park. Although many of them genuinely want to tidy up the place, they’re also well aware that it’s mostly a futile effort and suspect the real purpose of this operation is to evict them.
The demonstrators are being asked to temporarily leave while the area is power-washed, but that’s not as much a problem as requiring that they be “screened” if they want to get back into the park. And’s that’s their biggest grievance.
Stil, they scrubbed.
