OWS had an OCCUPY Brookfield Properties rally yesterday, I gather in the winter garden at the Financial Center. Both the atrium and Zuccoti Park are owned by Brookfield Properties whose board Mayor Bloombergs long time girfreind, Diana Taylor sits on. She gets paid $109,000 to attend 8 meetings a year and......dare we imagine..exert influence with the Mayor. Brookfield currently owes the City $139,000 in back taxes.
A huge police force met the 100 or so Occupy Brookfild demonstrators.If they had been better armed with information and had more focused goals they might have used this widely known information to really connect the dots for the American people on how it all works and take better advantage of a moment that might help New Yorkers unite to dump Bloomberg and bring some integrity to the City's relationship with Brookfield and the Occupiers
It was a perfect opportunity for some clever attention getting Occupy clever signs pointing at Bloomberg, pointing at Diane Taylor, pointing at Bloombergs excessive use of force with occupiers,pointig at agressive acion on delinquent taxes of ordinary people and outting an army of public security at Brookfields disposal on a call from his para amour Diana.
