Occupy Movements Nationwide Celebrate Holiday

Most Americans are spending Thanksgiving snug inside homes with families and football. But others are using the holiday to give thanks alongside strangers at outdoor Occupy encampments.

In San Francisco, hundreds of campers at Justin Herman Plaza in the heart of the financial district are preparing turkey dinners.

Across the bay in Oakland, where protesters and police clashed when an Occupy encampment was broken up, occupiers are planning a Thanksgiving feast outside City Hall with music and activist speakers.

And in New York, Occupy organizers intend to hand out thousands of Thanksgiving meals at Zuccotti Park, where the protest movement began on Sept. 17 before spreading nationwide. Protesters were evicted from the park on Nov. 15.
