Occupy Wall Street protestors occupy a different location

A clashing sound of snare drums, bongos, and bucket drums moved from the familiar spot of Zuccotti Park to the East side home of New York mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on Sunday, The New York Times reported.

Well, that was the intention of the Occupy Wall Street protestors. They wanted to stage a 24-hour circle of drums in front of the mayor's town house, but police officers blocked the protestors at every corner, according to The New York Times.

"In effect, the police have created a no-First Amendment zone on 79th (where the Mayor's house resides) Street," civil liberties lawyer Norman Siegel said.

The protestors who did a "Millionares March" on Oct. 11, bypassed the mayor's house, but was then chosen to protest in front of after they were forced out of Zuccotti Park according to The New York Times.

In response to being kicked out of the park by police early Tuesday morning, the protestors then decided to move their march elsewhere.

"[Bloomberg] sent the N.Y.P.D. to visit us the other day at 1 a.m., so now we are visiting him," Aaron Black, 38, said of the mayor to The New York Times. Black is a photographer who helped organized the event, according to The New York Times. "If he's in town, he should come downstairs to talk with us."
