Occupy Wall Street Marks Christmas With Prayers

Occupy Wall Street protesters have celebrated Christmas with prayers and a reading of a Martin Luther King speech in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park.

Police evicted protesters from the privately owned public space in November.

Christmas Day at Zuccotti -- the 100th day of the first demonstrations -- started at midnight with a prayer service in the park. Breakfast was served in the morning.

At noon, a 1967 speech by King was read -- one in which the civil rights leader expressed his opposition to the Vietnam War.

Other Christmas activities at Zuccotti Park included music and a poetry reading.
