Occupy Wall Street comes to Brooklyn
BROOKLYN (WABC) -- Occupy Wall Street protesters marched through a residential neighborhood in Brooklyn to call attention to the nation's ongoing housing crisis.
About 200 protesters demonstrated through the neighborhood of East New York carrying signs that say "Foreclose on banks, not people" and "Affordable housing for the 99 percent."
The marchers moved from one foreclosed or abandoned home to another, trying to demonstrate what they believe should be the moral obligation of the banks: either keeping families in their homes or filling vacant houses with those in need.
