Occupy Wall Street Protesters Stage Mock Occupation Of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Set

Occupy Wall Street

Late last Thursday evening protesters from New York’s Occupy Wall Street took their movement to an unexpected location: the set of an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

The protesters staged a “Mockpuation” at the city’s Foley Square where a replica of the movement’s former camp in Zuccotti Park had been set up, including a kitchen and library exactly like the real deal once had. The set was being used as the backdrop for an upcoming episode of SVU partially inspired by the Occupy movement.

You can watch a video of the protest here below.

Following the protest the show’s production company Dick Wolf Films had its filming permit pulled and the location shooting was scrapped.

The Zuccotti Park camp was destroyed last month in a raid by the New York Police Department authorized by Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The Law & Order franchise is notorious for using current events as the basis for story ideas, often weaving the socio-political viewpoints of its characters into the narrative. I’m sure the Occupy-inspired SVU episode will feature another political rant from its resident radical left-wing thinker Detective John Munch (played by stand-up comedian Richard Belzer, himself a well-known radical left-wing thinker), which will then move the other detectives in the Special Victims Unit to offer up their views on whatever issue is being discussed, maybe even the A.D.A. will interject, before Captain Kragen (Dann Florek) breaks up the debate and reminds his detectives of the task at hand. Yeah, I’ve seen a few episodes before.
