Tenting monument

Occupy DC protesters erect a tent over the statue of US Civil War Major General James Birdseye McPherson at McPherson Square in Washington, DC. Anti-corporate Occupy DC demonstrators in Washington face a deadline Monday to end their four months of camping or risk arrest -- but are confident their protest sites will not be closed down. Occupy DC is the most visible remaining offshoot of the Occupy movement after New York police swept away the original Wall Street encampment in mid-November. Getty Images
