#OWS - Times Square, October 15, 2011

Two incredibly inspiring people.

This guy Chris Hedges actually knows what's going on and has seen it around the world before, an amazing voice and moment in time.

I'm beginning to believe we're putting a lot of eggs in this basket, I hope all he's saying comes true, with all my heart.
On October 15th Occupy TVNY met with Pullitzer prize-winning author and journalist Chris Hedges in Times Square, New York City where tens of thousands of people assembled on a global day of action. Chris shares his feelings on where the Occupy movement has come from and where it is heading.

Bonus: More, In DC at Freedom Plaza recently

This Marine doing what any and every one should be doing, but he can do it easier since he has his uniform and size. Either way another incredible display of humanity and freedom and speaking truth to power.

short version
US Military veteran (Sgt Shamar Thomas, USMC) rants at NYPD over their brutality and reprehensible tactics, including kettling & mounted units (animals on horses), during the Times Square protest organized by Occupy Wall Street.

Long version from a different angle
United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas from Roosevelt, NY went toe to toe with the New York Police Department. An activist in the Occupy Wall Street movement, Thomas voiced his opinions of the NYPD police brutality that had and has been plaguing the #OWS movement.

Thomas is a 24-year-old Marine Veteran (2 tours in Iraq), he currently plays amateur football and is in college.

Thomas comes from a long line of people who sacrifice for their country: Mother, Army Veteran (Iraq), Step father, Army, active duty (Afghanistan), Grand father, Air Force veteran (Vietnam), Great Grand Father Navy veteran (World War II).
