Occupy Wall Street protesters have been desperately searching for a new home in Lower Manhattan ever since they were violently evicted from Zuccotti Park. And Trinity Wall Street Episcopal Church has a vacant lot just a mile away that could be an ideal location.

As a group of occupiers put it in an open letter, "We have asked the Church time and time again to grant us political sanctuary on their unused lands. It is time for Trinity to decide whether it is a Church or a real estate company. "

The group began a hunger strike on the site over the weekend, and Trinity responded by calling the New York Police Department and having the protesters arrested.

Pertinent contact information for immediate actions:

The Rev. Dr. James Herbert Cooper, rector of Trinity Wall Street

The Rt. Rev. Mark S. Sisk, 15th Bishop Ordinary of New York

  1. Looks to me that some of "The Right Rev.'s " are "wrong" on this one.
