Ed Schultz talked to Van Jones and Laura Flanders about the coordinated crackdowns we saw in cities across the country of the Occupy movement camps, the most notable of which was New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's clearing of Zuccotti Park.

As they noted, it's likely that the recent move by the mayors across the country is going to do nothing but strengthen the movement and spread it out. They also discussed the futility of more aggressive police action against the protesters just two days before the already organized International Day of Action scheduled for November 17th.
