Statement on Eviction of Liberty Square
Occupy Wall Street has been exiled from Zuccotti Park. As Jews, we know that exile is not the end. Occupy Judaism stands shoulder to shoulder with the Occupy Wall Street protesters. We are outraged by Mayor Bloomberg’s contempt for the rights of American citizens and his use of public health and safety to justify beating and macing nonviolent protesters. The mayor’s actions reflect neither Jewish, nor American, nor human values. You cannot evict an idea thats time has come. You cannot evict 99% of America. You cannot evict 99% of humanity.
