You can't evict an idea whose time has come.

From a statement posted on occupywallst.org at 1:30am:

"This burgeoning movement is more than a protest, more than an occupation, and more than any tactic."

<snip>

"Such a movement cannot be evicted. Some politicians may physically remove us from public spaces our spaces and, physically, they may succeed. But we are engaged in a battle over ideas. Our idea is that our political structures should serve us, the people all of us, not just those who have amassed great wealth and power. We believe that is a highly popular idea, and that is why so many people have come so quickly to identify with Occupy Wall Street and the 99% movement."
