Lansing, Mich. mayor defends ‘Occupy’ movement on MSNBC

Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero appeared on the Ed Show on MSNBC Thursday night to forcefully support the Occupy Wall Street protests across the country, and specifically to support the Lansing protests.

The Lansing mayor’s voice comes as several cities — including Seattle, Denver, San Antonio and Grand Rapids — have moved to eject protesters from public property. In New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg backed off earlier plans to eject protesters from Zuccotti Park to “clean” the property. Thousands appeared at the park at 6 a.m. prepared to be arrested to prevent New York Police from evicting the protesters.

By contrast, Bernero has provided Lansing protesters, currently occupying Reutters Park one block south of the state Capitol, with portable toilets, trash cans and an open-ended permit allowing the protesters to camp in the park.

Meanwhile, activists are working with the Michigan Peace Team Friday to train protesters in non-violent intervention and de-escalation skills. And at midnight Friday, UAW will send a large group to join the occupiers in Reutters Park. Mike Karl, a General Motors employee, told protesters the group will convene its Auto Workers’ Roundtable in the park to support occupiers.
