Protesters are suspicious of plan to clean up NYC park.




The Wall Street protesters are planning a demonstration for an hour before they're supposed to leave a lower Manhattan park so it can be cleaned.


  
Protest spokesman Patrick Bruner sent an email to supporters Thursday asking them to join the protest at Zuccotti Park at 6 a.m. Friday.
   
That's an hour before the park's owner plans to begin cleaning it, and an influx of demonstrators could set up a showdown with police.
   
Brookfield Properties told protesters that it will begin enforcing regulations that prohibit everything from lying down on benches to storing personal property on the ground.
   
Protesters say they believe the effort is an attempt to end their nearly month long encampment.
