    It's certainly warmer than Zuccotti Park. Occupy Wall Street is turning its attention to home evictions, with activists marching into Brooklyn and moving a family into a foreclosed home.

The crowd tore down the yellow tape on a foreclosed home that had been left vacant for three years and began cleaning so that Alfredo Carrasquillo, his wife, Tasha Glasgow, and their two children could move in. In Los Angeles, protesters gathered around a home where a family is refusing to leave despite Wells Fargo's attempts to evict them.
