Freedom Plaza I faced & challenged racism/white supremacy, sexism/patriarchy, classism, heterosexism & eventually was kicked off the island; then I offered workshops as I drove to CA:“Anti-Racism Geared for White Occupiers”; “NO DRONES” "Successes and Pitfalls of OWS"

Stories from the Station: Marines take care of me to be continued

A young Marine, leaving the station, told me today that the Marines are taking good care of him - they've given him drugs for his PTSD. He fought in Iraq for three terms and doesn't want to return for another term but he will if his country needs him. His wife and children? The Marines will take care of them too if he doesn't return this time.
