Occupy Wall Street protesters are camping out again, this time across the street from the Stock Exchange in downtown Manhattan. For the past four nights dozens of activists have camped outside as they prepare for a major day of action on May Day. It’s the first time Occupy Wall Street activists have set up an encampment in the financial district since New York police raided Zuccotti Park five months ago. “This is Wall Street, this is where, for people, where the heart of all this economic injustice in the world comes from and exists,” says protester George Machado. “So we’re here standing in the face of that, in blatant, explicit contest to that.”
