Sharing a concern about Oakland from Rick, in Helena:
I am sure most are following the police state attack on OccupyOakland, is there anything we can do in solidarity? I have contacted the one person I know is there on the ground in Oakland asking what they may need. Is there anything we can do in our march and action on Saturday? Can we get a veterans for peace escort? is there a native warriors society we can ask for help? Symbology is important! ~rick Continue discussion here
From Occupy Wall Street:
Late last night, Scott Olsen, a former Marine, two-time Iraq war veteran, and member of Iraq Veterans Against the War, sustained a skull fracture after being shot in the head with a police projectile while peacefully participating in an Occupy Oakland march. The march began at a downtown library and headed towards City Hall in an effort to reclaim a site—recently cleared by police—that had previously served as their encampment.
The NYC vigil in solidarity with the vigil being held in Oakland will begin at 6pm today, leaving from the red sculpture at Liberty Plaza.
