OccupyOMC Update 10.27.2011-1

As you’ve all heard, one of our own was critically injured this week when police forcibly broke up an “Occupy Oakland” event. Scott Olsen did two tours in Iraq with the Marines, only to come home and have his skull fractured by a tear gas canister. While our prayers go out to Scott and the Olsen family, our task is to get organized.

With more and more veterans joining Occupy movements across the country, it is critically important that we form a visible, strong contingent of vets here in NYC. Occupy Wall Street offers us an unprecedented opportunity to highlight the economic struggles of returning veterans, while also uniting with labor, community organizations, students, and the rest of the 99%.
