Photographer Nathan Fitch was on the scene this morning as police launched a controversial night-time raid that cleared Zuccotti Park of Occupy Wall Street protesters.

The NYPD reportedly arrested more than 150 protesters in the confrontation. A court order has told the city to let the protesters back in the park -- along with their tents and tarps -- until a hearing on the legality of the occupation takes place later today.
