Despite Poor Weather, Wall Street Protesters Continue Occupation


Albany, NY – The Wall Street protesters toughed it out in the rain Wednesday at Zuccotti Park in Manhattan. WAMC's Dave Lucas reports...

The park, which takes up one square block, was a sea of blue tarps - and people huddled beneath them.

Some soaked sleeping bags could be seen protruding from beneath the tarps.

The kitchen was still working, and served cereal for breakfast.

A couple of die-hards stood in the downpour while keeping their protest vigil.

One held up an American flag. Another wore a gas mask.
