As of 9 a.m., Union Square had 1-2 dozen occupiers (no tents, just 
coats and cardboard "beds") and at least as many cops. A truck 
with metal NYPD barricades showed up as I left and the police who 
were there started getting flex cuffs out. One woman from medical 
was injured and had a bandage on her foot this morning when they 
arrested occupiers last night/early this morning.

The people at Union Square are asking people to bring their bodies 
since it looks like the NYPD may move in soon. There's a 6 p.m. 
rally for Justice for Trayvon Martin at Union Square today
so any police action is likely to occur before hundreds or 
thousands of people show up for that.
