Melissa, I haven't heard anything about vacant lots specifically. But it would seem to me that if these are the yards of houses that have been foreclosed on, there may be two reasons for camping in the yard.

First, although they would be trespassing, they couldn't be charged with breaking and entering, which is more serious.

Second, if the Occupiers are IN the house, people driving or walking by will think it's just a house. But with people camped in the yard, it identified as one of THOSE houses.

I'm just speculating here.
