"They woke us when we tried to sleep"

Less than two dozen Occupy Wall Street protesters stayed overnight Wednesday in a downtown park that had been home to hundreds before the city cleared the site and banned tents, sleeping bags and lying down…

“I was dismayed by the number of people who stayed,” said Sam DeLily, 23, from Queens. “I was disappointed that more people didn’t realize we’d need a show of support last night more than ever.”…

“They woke us when we tried to sleep,” DeLily said. “It wasn’t 100 percent consistent. Some (people) got an hour, some got two minutes.”

“Sounds like a crime. Attempted sleep,” said Joe Diamond, 28, of Brooklyn, another man who braved the granite benches.
