On Thursday, October 13, 2011, protesters interrupted foreclosure proceedings at the New York State Supreme Court (a state trial court) in Brooklyn, New York. The video above captures the action and the protestors singing:
Mrs. Auctioneer, all the people here
we're asking you to hold off the sales right now.
We're going to survive but we don't know how.
The protests are organized by Organizing For Occupation. Here's the group's self-description:
Organizing for Occupation (O4O) is a group of New York City residents from the activist, academic, religious, homeless, arts, and progressive legal communities who have come together to respond to the housing crisis. We firmly believe that safe and affordable housing is a human right, and that the government and the private sector have failed to meaningfully address this crisis.

According to the New York Times (here), nine people were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
More protests are planned for future dates.
