Occupy: Just Do It!

More Than 50 Occupy Wall Street Protesters Arrested In Manhattan


"Jesus came into the world. There was not room for him in the inn. So once again, today there is no room for people who are struggling for the poor, as we say for the 99 percent,” said Father Paul Mayer, who was arrested during yesterday’s protest.

“I think that in order to be able to exercise our first amendment freedom of assembly, we have to actually do it. And if that means that we can't obtain the permits necessary to do so, then we need to just do it anyway,” said Jessie LeGreca, a protester.

Trinity Church has allowed protestors to use its meeting rooms and offices but has so far refused to let them take over the lot.
