Occupy Wall Street

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Protesters with the “Occupy” movement have continued to make waves nationwide, but they’ve been out of the New York City media spotlight pretty much since their encampment was swept out of Zuccotti Park.

Now supporters of Occupy Wall Street hope to recapture some of that attention with today’s “Day of Action NYC.” They’re planning a tour of foreclosed homes in East New York and intend to “liberate a foreclosed home,” according to their website.

“The banks got bailed out, but our families got kicked out,” reads a message on the site.

The Occupy protest got started Sept. 17 at Zuccotti Park. While the protesters have been allowed to continue their demonstration at the park, their sleeping bags, tents and other materials used to set up a permanent camp have been barred.

No word on whether the home they plan to “liberate” will become the next hub of the movement.

Protesters have also called for a “reoccupation” commencing on Dec. 17, which would be three months since the demonstration began.
