Mayor Bloomberg said Friday that he’s going to start turning the screws on the Occupy Wall Streeters.
The city is planning to take a harder line on demonstrators camping out in Zuccotti Park – and insist on permits every time they want to march through Lower Manhattan, he said.
“We will start enforcing that more,” Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show.
The protesters have a Constitutional right to demonstrate and have mostly been “peaceful,” the mayor added.
