3 months ago in Tompkins Square Park: Planning for Occupy Wall Street

Here's our post from Aug. 12 ...

The planning to occupy Wall Street continues tomorrow at 5 p.m. with a meeting in Tompkins Square Park...

Interesting to look back at all this... Bob Arihood covered the meeting. He noted the following:

A number of individuals , in considerable ignorance of the law of the land, complained that their pictures were being taken . We were lectured quite arrogantly and condescendingly at length to respect the privacy of individuals .

TSP isn't the dorm rec room or the recitation hall folks , it is public property , public space .There is no expectation of privacy here , especially when engaged in a political act .
