Only a few hundred people remain on the financial avenue, but they say they aren’t leaving, ABC news reports, and they have blankets, food and heaters to sustain them. Police say they won’t remove the protesters.
Occupy Wall Street, which organized the protests, says it was inspired by the demonstrations around the world this year from “our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland.”
