Occupy Fairbanks erects warming tent; city objects
From the Anchorage Daily News: http://www.adn.com/2011/11/15/2172465/warm-up-tent-could-get-occupy.html#disqus_thread

The protesters said the tent and stove are crucial for them to keep exercising their constitutional rights of free speech and assembly.

The protesters set up the canvas wall tent in Veterans Memorial Park.

Winter is upon Alaska's second-largest city, where overnight temperatures were expected to plummet to minus 35 degrees.
