Wannabe SG Brickette Is Among The First To Re-Occupy Union Square After Another Night Of Eviction Theater

SuicideGirls recently met up with Lego artist Christopher Sean Grosek and a delegation of his Occupy Lego Land denizens, who were attempting to reoccupy New York’s Union Square.

Following Occupy Wall Street’s eviction from Zuccotti Park late last year, in recent weeks protesters have been looking for another space to call home. Much of the action has therefore been centered on Union Square, a location which – until the occupiers arrived – had traditionally remained open 24/7. However, the NYPD – intent of preventing OWS from regaining a permanent foothold in the city – has been clearing the park at midnight and forcing protesters behind barricades. This nightly pantomime has been dubbed “Eviction Theater” by occupiers.

Having been kicked out of the park with the protesters at just past midnight (an action that resulted in a couple of arrests the night we were there), the Occupy Lego Land crew regrouped across the road to avoid incarceration in something more severe than a toy crate. As they began re-staging their protest in earnest, the Legotti Park veterans were joined by photographers, videographers, livestreamers – and a brand new member of their ranks.

Brickette is a wannabe SG, who is enthusiastic in her support of the 99%. Unfortunately, she’s also enthusiastic about liquor that is 90% proof, as we found out earlier that evening…After being bowled over in a bar by a handsome member of the opposite sex, who was carrying a rather bold sign saying he was “Too Big To Fail,” Brickette proceeded to hook up with him while getting fall-down intoxicated on alcohol rather than love.

Despite disgracing herself in public with her drunken antics, Brickette ultimately redeemed herself. Bolstered by a little Dutch courage of the kind best produced in Scotland, she charmed the NYPD officers guarding Union Square with her big…personality, and got them to agree to let the Occupy Lego Land protesters reenter Union Square. Lego it seems, is a uniter rather than a divider, and Occupy Lego Land’s army is a powerful ally to spread the love for the 99%.

After being invited to many other occupations across the country, and across the globe, Occupy Lego Land has started a WePay fundraising campaign for travel expenses. You can help them out by donating here.
