Occupy DC Protesters Plan to Rebuild After Police Raze Shelter

Washington protesters aligned with the Occupy Wall Street movement said they plan to build another place to hold meetings in bad weather after U.S. Park Police tore down a plywood shelter near the White House.

“We are going to regroup, think of alternatives and move ahead with a plan,” said John Zangas, 52, who said he has lived with the protesters for seven weeks. “We need a symbol of our permanency here.”
