Things are heating up 100+ blocks to the south, as the NYU student occupation moves into its second night. Major highlights of the day include the long negotiations over food (strangely, the university’s dining staff is feeding the protesters), the annoyance of many fellow students (to be expected when you demand a ban on Coke), and (if you go for this sort of thing) topless protesters.

For up-to-the-minute coverage, check out NYULocal’s liveblogging, which has become even awsomer as its correspondent has become more sleep-deprived. Style note #2 to protestors: don’t moan to the person live-blogging your occupation about how he sucks. Not cool.
All the fun, though, could be over shortly, as the university administration has set a a deadline of 1 a.m. for the students to leave, after which “there will be consequences.” Oh, and if you do agree with their demands, there’s a support rally planned for around midnight. Enjoy.
UPDATE (1:15 PM): Just after noon, NYU security guards raided the occupied space, and rounded up all but 4 of the occupying students. Bwog’ll have a summary of the day once everything calms down, but in the meantime keep with NYULocal’s coverage.
