Complete with a sign reading “We are a movement, not a TV plot,” New York’s Occupy Wall Street protesters made their way last night to “occupy” a Law & Order: SVU set in New York’s Foley Square that featured a mock-up of the protesters’ onetime camp at Zuccotti Park. The replica included a library and a kitchen like at the original site, which was taken down last month by the city. The plan was for SVU to shoot this morning one of its ripped-from-the-headlines episodes featuring a story with the camp as a backdrop. But protesters, evidently not fans of that idea, changed that: In the end, after the NYPD came in to clear out the crowd, producer Dick Wolf Films saw its film permit rescinded sometime overnight, and no scenes were shot. Dick Wolf Films and NBC have declined comment so far. Here’s a video from the event:
