Occupy Wall Street makes bid for new New York City camp

Occupy protesters played drums, cymbals and  trombones, held group  meetings and waved signs with a variety of messages — “Disobedience is   civil” and “Sorry to inconvenience your apathy” — as they marked the  movement’s third-month anniversary with a major direct action that could  give them a new home as authorities continue to shutter camps  nationwide. 
A few hundred protesters — flanked by police  officers — coalesced on a nearly half-acre plot about one mile  northwest of their former camp at Zuccotti Park. But their potential new  landlord at Duarte Square, Trinity Church, has voiced strong  opposition, and the move by Occupy is seen by some as applying strong  pressure to them to cave in and let the protesters install themselves.
Under  the banner of “Re-Occupy,” the protesters said more than 1,400 people  — elders of the civil rights movement, prominent artists, faith leaders  and community members — will help them try and set up camp there after  they were evicted from Zuccotti Park on Nov. 15.
“I’m just loving  seeing everybody from Zuccotti Park and it really puts an exclamation  point on the (question) that’s been asked today so many times, ‘Do you  guys need a space?’ … and the answer is, ‘yes.’ When you walk around  and see the familiar faces and the kindred spirits and the unification  of effort, then you realize yes we do need a space so that we can all be  together and function as whole as a group and move forward, no doubt,”  said Thorin Caristo, a 37-year-old protester who is part of an  independent livestream team.
