Occupy Broadway protest expected to descend on Times Square...
The occupation is expected to feature continuous free performances from some noted downtown New York artists.
Organizers of Occupy Broadway say that the exact location of the event won't be revealed until later, only confirming that it will be a "privately-owned public space" near Times Square. "We call for an end to the trampling of our constitutional right to public assembly, our occupation of public space and our right to democracy itself."
In a release sent Tuesday, organizers of Occupy Broadway said that participating groups will include the Civilians, a New York theater group, as well as performers Mike Daisey and Penny Arcade.
The occupation is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on Friday. Organizers said they are inviting the public to join them in the protest event.
