There are rumors flying around Twitter that the Department of Homeland Security is at Liberty Plaza in NYC, perhaps helping NYPD orchestrate the best manner in which to disobey a clear order from a judge to allow protesters back into the park? If anyone has photo evidence of DHS presence, either vehicles or people, at Liberty Plaza, please tweet them at @ACLU_Mass. Also, if you were arrested at OWS or feel that your rights were violated there, please contact the NYCLU at protest [at] nyclu [dot] org.

Here's another image, this one from about 11 AM today at Liberty Plaza. The police filming demonstrators being kept outside of the park.

And a strange report from a reporter on Twitter. Are the police keeping people locked inside their homes in the vicinity of Liberty Plaza?
