The list of Occupy encampments across the country drops to 62 this week, down from 66 on December 28. Surprisingly few have been lost to cold weather — far more are the victims of quick & dirty legislation passed by local city councils that have ignored homeless issues for decades, but are suddenly consumed with an overwhelming concern for “public safety.”

FDL has updated the Occupy Supply working list of encampments across the country. We count 67 occupations as of 12/26/2011, up from 63 on December 22.
If you think an encampment should be included on the list, please send a photo or video taken within the last week showing the tents, or a link to a recent media report on the tent encampment, to members AT firedoglake DOT com.
