Occupy Trenton NJ Shut Down, Media Equipment Seized.
Edited on Fri Oct-14-11 12:41 PM by Blue State Bandit
Live feed is now offline. Plain clothed "men" protected by NJ State Troopers clear protesters and seize everything including laptops, cameras and networking equipment.

Developing....


UPDATE FROM THE GROUND:

: They are fine, just regrouping.
: They are creating a very specific list of things we need.
: Stay tuned for that.
: Most importantly they said they need people to come down there and support them.
: 125 West State Street in Trenton New Jersey

2. From someone on the scene:
JFKFC: The Police took nothing. These were municipal workers. The Police have been supportive of us this whole time. Something apparantly changed behind the scenes. The police stood, making sure it was chill

3. From Facebook
-As of right now, under orders of the Attorney General, the personal possessions of our occupiers not on their immediate person are being seized and discarded. We are continuing to film everything.

8. Wonder Who Ordered This?
Whoever it was, he sure wasn't thinking ahead. The lawsuits are going to be brutal.
