What’s Next For The Occupy Movement?

Police moved into the Occupy Wall Street encampment at New York City’s Zuccotti Park and arrested 70 protesters as the park was cleared for a thorough cleaning early Tuesday.

Police handed out notices from the city and the owner of the park, saying that it had to be cleared because it had become unsanitary and hazardous.

Protesters were told they could return in several hours, but without sleeping bags, tarps or tents. This follows similar actions to clear encampments in Portland and Oakland.

Meanwhile, Adbusters, the Canadian magazine that spurred the movement, is suggesting it might be time for protesters to declare victory and scale back for winter.
