Although not nearly as big (or as structured) as last year's encampment at Zuccotti Park, Occupy Wall Street's presence in Union Square is still noticeable. It has definitely got the attention of law enforcement. Last week, the local authorities moved in to confiscate the latest reincarnation of OWS's library. Jason Boog covered the police action for GalleyCat (see below).

Occupy Wall Street Library Confiscated in Union Square
By Jason Boog
Earlier this week, the Occupy Wall Street librarians posted a picture of the newly rebuilt Occupy Wall Street Library in New York City's Union Square Park. By the end of the day, police had cleared out most of the library - leaving behind the books in the picture (embedded above).
Below, we've created a chronological collection of tweets from the activists showing what happened to the library. The librarians tweeted a new chant today: "People got sold out, books got thrown out!"
