Further proving you can’t keep a good idea down, OWS librarians are set to petition the New York GA for funds to restart the People’s Library. Their previous efforts were confiscated in the Zucotti Park raid and the vast majority of their equipment was destroyed by police. Here’s their full petition:
The People’s Library would like $800 to purchase tarps, dollies, and plastic bins, and to provide transportation from SIS to the occupation of Duarte Square on December 17. All of our supplies, our computers, our bins and 80% of our collection was destroyed in the raid on Liberty Park on November 14. Since then we have received donations of books from around the world. We want to bring them to the people!”

(It’s heartening to see them rebuilding in the wake of senseless destruction. Can you hear that, NYGA? We’re waggling our fingers as hard as we possibly can in support. —ed.)
