Occupy the Courts Is Waiting on the Court’s Permission

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 15:   Occupy Wall Street activists march through downtown Manhattan after police removed the protesters early in the morning from Zuccotti Park on November 15, 2011 in New York City. Hundreds of protesters, who rallied against inequality in America, have slept in tents and under tarps since September 17 in Zuccotti Park, which has since become the epicenter of the global Occupy movement. The raid in New York City follows recent similar moves in Oakland, California, and Portland, Oregon.  (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

Demonstrators will assemble at federal courthouses nationwide tomorrow for a one-day protest that coincides with the second anniversary of the Supreme Court's Citizens United v. FEC decision, but the event's New York City plans are on hold as they wait for a permit. The local Occupy the Courts rally was denied their request to congregate in Manhattan, but has been granted an expedited hearing for its appeal in ... Manhattan Federal Court. Oh, bureaucracy.
