At around 9:00pm on November 11, a generator was seized by a plainclothes man, according to multiple bystanders in Zucotti Park.

Community affairs and police on site confirmed on this video that the Fire Marshall had removed it.

Bystanders commented that man came in, said "I want my tubing back (referring to exhaust tubing coming out from generator)", then yanked out the generator and demanded it be unplugged to one of the campers. He then left quickly with the generator and threw the exhaust tube to the ground

This is in the wake of the General Assembly's passage of the Comprehensive Safety and Health Plan and the creation of the Liberty Plaza Fire Department (FDNY), aka "The People's Firehouse."
