For almost two weeks, a hardcore group of a few hundred protesters have occupied Zuchotti Park in downtown Manhattan -- just a stone's throw from Wall Street. They're seeking to bring attention to the need for drastic economic restructuring in the United States. These protests have inspired similar occupations in dozens of cities across the country-including here in Tampa. WMNF's Kelly Benjamin is at the Occupation in New York and spoke with protesters today about how they are accomplishing the basics of survival in a half-acre public park in the middle of the Big Apple.
