Occupy D.C.: A peek inside the ‘Tent of Dreams’

Just after the National Park Service’s noon deadline Monday, by which protesters in Washington’s two Occupy D.C. camps were required to decamp, protesters fought back by stringing up a giant blue tarp in the middle of McPherson Square.

The term “tent of dreams” was trending on Twitter Monday morning as images of the tarp’s interior circulated around the Web.
