How to use "Occupying" in context?

"Occupying" has a general definition referring to a form of protest or Allan where a group of people take control of a space or building in order to voice their opposition or to get their message out to the public. One particular way this can be done is by occupying a public space in order to block it from being used by the public, as was done by protestors in Egypt in 2011.
