Signs of the Occupation

On Tuesday night, Black Lives Matter activists occupied City Hall in lower Manhattan to demand that Mayor Bill de Blasio cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion. The activists plan to stay until at least June 30th, when the Mayor and City Council announce the new budget.

I went down to the occupation on Friday and captured the following images:
