Massachusetts Pirate Party condemns the NYPD’s attack on Occupy Wall Street

The Massachusetts Pirate Party condemns the New York Police Department’s unlawful and violent attack on peaceful Occupy Wall Street protesters and the clearing of Zuccotti Park. OWS protesters were exercising their constitutional right to free speech and to assemble peacefully. Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD are directly responsible for trampling on those rights as well as the rights of a free press by clearing media from Zuccotti Park and the airspace above it.

We also condemn the recent police attacks on protesters in Oakland, Portland, Chapel Hill and other cities. That these efforts appear to have been coordinated among eighteen cities, as stated by Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, puts the lie to the justifications given to clear these protest sites.

We urge all who support Occupy Wall Street to continue our struggle against corporate power and the 1% by increasing our efforts to reach out to and identify supporters. We encourage all Pirates to stay calm, while also escalating their level of nonviolence. Locally, we continue our support of the Occupy Boston movement and urge our members to aid Occupy efforts in their communities.
