NYC Protesters to Mark 3 Months of Occupy

Saturday, 17 Dec 2011 07:33 AM

 

NEW YORK — Protesters plan to mark three months of Occupy Wall Street with speeches and performances at a church-owned lot that was the scene of arrests last month.

The event at Duarte Square at Sixth Avenue and Canal Street is scheduled for noon Saturday. The protests against economic inequality began Sept. 17 with the occupation of Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan. Protesters were cleared out of Zuccotti on Nov. 15 and are no longer allowed to sleep there.

The fenced-in Duarte Square property is owned by Trinity Wall Street church. Church officials say they support the protesters but the property is not available to be occupied. Twenty-two protesters and journalists were arrested there after Zuccotti was cleared on Nov. 15.

Occupy Wall Street's press team says protesters may occupy the property Saturday.
