We are all Scott Olsen – and the movement broadens in Eugene

There is a lot at stake and thus, the people who have a lot to lose are nervous. Often when powerful people worry about protests, they ask the police to come in and break up the riff-raff. The consistently peaceful protest in Oakland was brutally broken up by the Oakland police yesterday.  Last night these Oakland cops critically injured an Iraq vet named Scott Olsen with a rubber bullet. He may not make it.

Today thousands of people called in angry at the police’s unnecessary violence. There is a movement to recall the major.
