DescriptionAt about 1:30am on Nov. 15 2011 student reporters at The Brooklyn Ink received a tip that police would soon clear protestors from New York City’s Zuccotti Park the focal point of Occupy Wall Street. Rather than get their professors out of bed the students jumped on the story providing live coverage throughout the night and early morning.
