UNM Wall Street Protest

Albuquerque – Protesters occupying a corner of the campus at the University of New Mexico say they plan to camp out indefinitely.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/obneI5) that dozens of protesters have made a temporary home of a grassy area on campus dubbed "Camp Coyote" to localize support for the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protest across the country.

University officials said Wednesday they have tolerated the campus camp out since Saturday, but they're not sure how long it will be allowed to continue.

The demonstration is part of a number of protests against Wall Street as demonstrators across the country show their anger over the wobbly economy and what they see as corporate greed. The Occupy Wall Street protests started on Sept. 17 in front of the New York Stock Exchange.
