Safe Tent for Women @ Occupy Wall Street
Lots of bad press recently for the Occupy Wall Street Protesters especially from the New York Post highlighting the fights and alleged sexual assaults.
Always listening to the criticism, the Occupy Wall Street protesters responded by buying seven large military grade tents and erecting the first one as a safe space for women.
The tents which also boast raised plywood floors will sleep up to 30 women. This tent is the closest thing to a permanent structure built thus far in Zuccotti park. The other six tents which be pitched in the coming days in the hope of alleviating some of the stress of wet, cold weather as well as provide increased security for protesters sleeping at night.
