Occupy WNY ready to launch neighborhood campaign

The splinter group of the local Occupy Movement says it is working to spread its message across the area. 

Occupy Western New York is ready to launch  "Occupy Phase 2: Take Back Our Neighborhoods" Campaign. 

WBFO'S Eileen Buckley talked with two members,   Chris Philips and Christina Cooke.  They split away from the Occupy Buffalo movement in Niagara Square a few weeks ago.  That lead to Cooke's arrest on December 21st.  But now the two members tell us the group plans to buy a vacant home in the city and turn it into a community center.
