Russell Simmons Offers To Pay For Wall Steet Cleanup To Avoid Violence
Russell Simmons is taking action to avoid confrontation between protestors and police.
Taking to Twitter late Thursday, Simmons appealed to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who first announced that the protesters would be asked to leave the park while it is cleaned, saying that he’d personally bankroll sanitation efforts.
“Dear @MikeBloomberg — I will pay for clean-up of Zuccotti Park to avoid confrontation. I don’t wanna go to jail but I will be there ready!” he tweeted, which followed a series of messages that started with a dire prediction.
“Damn looks like they are gonna start a war out of this non violent movement. This could set off lots of chaos,” he first wrote, adding, “The law says the young people can stay. I love the mayor, my advice dont allow this to get violent.”
Simmons, who was at the park Thursday, then appealed to those that support the Occupy Wall Street protests, inviting them down for an early protest.
