    Occupy Wall Street protesters are marching through a residential neighborhood in Brooklyn to call attention to the nation's ongoing housing crisis.

    About 200 protesters are marching through the neighborhood of East New York carrying signs that say "Foreclose on banks, not people" and "Affordable housing for the 99 percent."

    Protesters say similar actions are taking place elsewhere in the country Tuesday.

    They say they plan to have someone move into a foreclosed house in Brooklyn.

    NBC New York first reported in November the group's plans to protest foreclosures.
