Cleanup of 'Occupy Wall Street' Park Is Postponed

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The cleanup of Zuccotti Park, the park in Manhattan where the "Occupy Wall Street" movement has been camped, has been postponed.

Brookfield Office Properties (BPO), which owns the property, put off the cleaning, New York Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway told the protesters early Friday.

"Late last night, we received notice from the owners of Zuccotti Park -- Brookfield Properties -- that they are postponing their scheduled cleaning of the park, and for the time being withdrawing their request from earlier in the week for police assistance during their cleaning operation," the statement from the deputy mayor said.

Brookfield had planned to clean the park and then let the protesters back in, but without much of their sleeping gear. It was feared a confrontation between police and protestors, who have been camped out for about a month, would ensue after many protestors said the only way they would leave was through force.

What is the point of the Occupy Wall Street protest and similar demonstrations?

Inequality. The rich add zeroes to their bank accounts while others cope with debit card fees.
Jealousy. Class warfare and income redistribution. The protesters don't want to work, they just want a free ride.
Economy. It's tough to find a job out there, especially if you don't have one.
Politics. The right has its Tea Party and now the left has Occupy Wall Street.
Greed. Banks and other corporations crashed the global economy in 2008 and then dined at the taxpayer bailout trough.
Educational system. Many have massive student loan debt but no jobs to help pay that off.
All of the above.
