Occupy protesters brave the weather

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Protesters for Occupy Richmond are braving cold temperatures, still camping out at Kanawha Plaza in downtown Richmond.

About a dozen tents have been set up at the park.

Protesters say they're not going anywhere until things change in Washington. Many tell us they are frustrated with the current economic and political process, and are willing to brave cold nights to get their message across.

"The whole physical aspect of it, it took three days to get used to sleeping outside, but your body gets used to it. Wear layers, stay dry," said protester Zach Lewis.

There's no word on how long protesters plan to camp out at the plaza.
