Early this morning NSW Police forcibly arrested and removed Occupy Sydney protesters from their Martin Place encampment.

Police have arrested 40 people and moved on #OccupySydney protesters this morning after they failed to comply with a move on notice.

. @cityofsydney asks “What if we were prepared to sacrifice comfort for change?” and @nswpolice answers: We’ll attack you. #occupysydney

Dear NSWPolice, the real criminals are the bankers in their towers, not the people on the street. Go arrest them at dawn, not #OccupySydney

Protesters of #occupysydney should hold their heads high. They have given a voice & shape to what millions feel: That the system is broken.

#OccupySydney Protester on tv said he was protesting for a week. Maybe he should put more effort into working.

Raiding a peaceful protest at 5am without notice – new low. Whether you agree with #occupysydney or not, I thought this was a free country?

Aussie police are playing a provocative, heavy-handed game with #occupymelbourne and #occupysydney
