Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler spends a day in Zuccotti Park, the site of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    The Occupy Wall Street movement has been expanding across the United States, with celebrities and even politicians joining the protesters who started their movement in Zuccotti park in New York City.

    Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler spent a day in the one-block park in lower Manhattan with one of the movement's organisers to see the conditions of those who slept out on the streets for more than four weeks.
