The surprising October snowstorm Saturday showed that winter’s chill is fast descending on protesters encamped in New York City’s Liberty Plaza. Will they stay or will they go? We’ll find out in the weeks to come, but for now, Wall Street’s occupiers and their supporters seem determined to keep the movement alive.
Donations of hats, boots, socks, gloves and other winter clothes are coming in, and the campers are working to find ways to stay warm and powered after the NYPD took six generators away from them Friday. Those interested in donating clothing and other essential winter items can do so here. —Alexander Reed Kelly
