Most of the Occupy Movement overnight encampments were disbanded with protesters returning indoors to sleep. But they promised to return after the New York Police Department marked the six-month anniversary of the movement by beating the activists in Zuccotti Park on St. Patrick's Day, Saturday, March 17, 2012. Dustin M. Slaughter is a photojournalist from Pennsylvania who was at the brutality over the weekend. He speaks to RT's Kristine Frazao.
MAY DAY ALERT
On May Day (May 1, 2012) 50,000 people from all over the world will flock to Chicago, set up tents, kitchens, peace barricades, and #OCCUPYCHICAGO for a month. The world’s military and political elites, heads of state, a total of 7,500 officials from 80 nations, and more than 2,500 journalists will be there for a rare simultaneous G8 and NATO summit. And so will #OCCUPY.
