Hundreds of protesters have slept in tents and under tarps since Sept. 17 in Zuccotti Park, which was both the birthplace of the protests against economic inequality and the physical symbol of the movement. The police operation came after organizers announced plans to mark the two-month anniversary of the movement this week with plans to “shut down Wall Street” and “occupy the subways.”

“Some politicians may physically remove us from public spaces — our spaces,” activists said in a statement released at 2:25 a.m. local time. “You cannot evict an idea whose time has come.”
