We are sure that Teamsters, union allies, students and OWSers are making Sotheby's and their customers very, very uncomfortable tonight. For a little while we watched the livestream of tonight's protest at Sotheby's here. We saw the sidewalks just swarming with police officers. We heard the "vibe is hair raising." And this:
@catherina_guate #Sotheby's tonight was most ballistic action I have seen at #OWSAccording to the live feed, it seemed the law enforcement officers getting OT to protect Sotheby's entitled jerks are not exactly enthusiastic about the entitled jerks.

ping_t: I think this protest at Sotheby's is showing something to the NYPD, they know these ego driven manical bastards who get away with everything go to Sothebys. . .the NYPD sure is acting differentCustomers walking in and out of Sotheby's were subjected to the "Shame"jeers, which we remember well from Wisconsin.
