Message from Scott Olsen, Vet for Peace injured at Occupy Oakland protests

(excerpt from) SF Appeal
Former Marine Injured In #OccupyOakland Demonstration Releases Statement

A former U.S. Marine injured in Occupy Oakland demonstrations last month released his first public statement on Sunday after he was released from the hospital last week.

[Scott] Olsen posted the statement on Google Plus Sunday morning, accompanied by a picture of himself with a neck brace and a scar on his forehead.

“I’m feeling a lot better, with a long road in front of me. After my freedom of speech was quite literally taken from me, my speech is coming back but I’ve got a lot of work to do with rehab,” Olsen, 24, said in the brief statement…

And…the rest of Scott Olsen’s statement from the Pacific Free Press:

“Thank you for all your support, it has meant the world to me. You’ll be hearing more from me in the near future and soon enough we’ll see you in our streets!”

____________________________________________________________________

Editor’s note from KW: It is so interesting and telling. Most of the media outlets do not mention that Scott Olsen is a member of Veterans for Peace. In fact, they have taken to saying only that he is a Marine, and not categorizing him as a Veteran. Think that is another media ploy to steer us away from the root issue of militarism and war.
