Since the city agreed to divert up to a billion dollars in NYPD funding Tuesday, the #OccupyCityHall protest has waned at City Hall Park - yet some protesters are sticking around, insisting that they are prepared for war if theyre told to leave.
Participants in the continuing #OccupyCityHall sleep-in at City Hall on Centre Street are now preparing for an anticipated clash with police as an exit strategy similar to that of the Occupy Wall Street encampment in 2011.
At that time, the protestors who took up residence in Zuccotti Park on Broadway and Liberty Street at that time were there for more than two months before being removed in a violent clash.
But at City Hall, up to 200 protesters have been training on site to fight police and resist their anticipated clearing of the area and their makeshift living quarters. Theyve engaged in self-defense training, and some of them have made plywood shields and other makeshift weapons if the NYPD or others try to make a move on the camp.
Many of the protestors from various groups who had been occupying the space next to the Tweed Court House were prepared to stay if a billion dollars wasnt defunded from the NYPD. Some of those protestors now say they will stay because they are not satisfied with the defunding nor continuing policy changes that had been demanded.
One of those changes included the disbanding of the NYPD and elimination of school safety officers from schools, a demand that few legislators were willing to entertain.

The urban cities are chitholes. Gentrification is dead. Escape from New York,L.A. etc. You can’t jam people together without consequences. People need space.
These NY DEMOCRATS BETTER NOT bring their damn politics to Sarasota! It’s still a pretty nice somewhat conservative little place!
Unfortunately the libs are everywhere. They instinctively know that cities are bad but too stoopid to know that their ideology is the reason for the move to the country. And too stoopid to see that country people just want to be left alone.
Just cut off food and water...
Put a fence around them and arrest upon exit.
the writer, Todd Maisel, seems to be on the side of the protesters!

hell with it remove the trash that is keeping citizens from their rights to life liberty and pursuit of happiness, kick their butts, arrest, jail, and post billboards, BLM yes, thugs matter no
Fence it off so no one leaves unless in cuffs.
Make it rain 24 hours a day (equivalent of turning on the sprinklers)
Flash bangs every 10 - 30 minutes but random and play the Barney song in a loop at a high volume.
Wet and sleep deprived they will either surrender or off themselves.
thats a lot of work, not to mention water damage, put a tent up and fumigate the building occupants or not.
Sounds like he’s a real piece of work!
I say, override the HVAC systems and turn up the heat, board over the windows and cook the bastards out, that’s how you deal with a termite infestation in a clean, green manner.
