For the last several weeks, #OccupyWallSt protesters have been occupying a small park in lower Manhattan called Zuccotti Park—named after John Zuccotti. John Zuccotti is the Co-chairman Brookfield Office Properties. Brookfield Office Properties is owned by Brookfield Asset Management [BAM].
Last Friday, after a month of debauchery, unlike the protesters, Zuccotti Park was scheduled to be hosed off, cleaned up, sticky stuff removed from the pavement and, generally, disinfected. For some reason, however, Brookfield Asset Management canceled the disinfecting.
Brookfield, which owns office properties in Boston and Washington D.C., headed off a possible nasty confrontation between police and protestors late Thursday when it said it would not need to clear the park to get it cleaned.
In a statement released late Thursday, Brookfield said it believes it, “can work out an arrangement with the protesters that will ensure the park remains clean, safe, available for public use and that the situation is respectful of residents and businesses downtown, and we will continue to monitor the situation.
Of course, George Soros, the puppet master who may or may not (it depends on the time of day for Reuters) have had a hand in the #OccupyWallSt protests probably had no part (none whatsoever) in directing Brookfield to cancel the disinfectant.
And, of course George Soros probably doesn’t own shares of Brookfield Asset Management either.
Move along, citizen. There’s nothing to see here.
