As hundreds of people joyously celebrated the six month birthday of Occupy Wall Street in Zuccotti Park, the largest gathering in months without police barricades, the NYPD declared the park closed at 11:30 p.m. They moved into the park swinging batons, beating people attempting to exercise rights that are supposed to be legally guaranteed.
