    Ain't No Flies On Us: Occupy Wall Street Is Clean


    *Action Alert for tomorrow at 6am at the bottom!

    “Ain’t No Flies On Us” aka “Young Man With A Broom”.


    Occupy Wall Street is clean! Need proof? OWS has a sanitation committee  for cleaning up the area, and a comfort committee for personal cleaning  and fresh socks. This video has an eye witness account of a young man  with a broom doing the rounds, and reminding his fellow demonstrators to  clean up their spaces. It also shows the order and polish at the  People’s Library (see the library’s blog: My husband and I visited Liberty Square this past Sunday. We did not  see any flies or other critters! We saw a noble attempt to keep pathways  clear, even while the world around buzzes and visits with the hope of  what is happening. News and pronouncements about the need for a cleanup  are bogus. Let Occupy Wall Street stay! Let them continue to speak up  for the 99%

    * * * * *

    If Mayor Bloomberg or Brookfield Properties asks you to clean up, tell them:


    There ain’t no flies on us. Ugh!
    There ain’t no flies on us. Ugh!
    There may be flies on some of you guys.
    But, there ain’t no flies on us. Ugh!

    * * * * *

    Action Alert!

    Eviction or arrests may happen Friday, early morning!


    1) In NYC: Call 311 and tell Bloomberg to support our right to assemble and to not interfere with #OWS.
    (Outside NYC call 212-NEW-YORK/212-639-9675)
