Scott Olsen, U.S. Vet Who Nearly Lost Life at Occupy Protest, Brings Antiwar Message to NATO Summit - We’re joined at the NATO summit in Chicago by Scott Olsen, who survived two tours in Iraq but almost died when he was hit with a police projectile at an Occupy Oakland protest last year. Olsen returned four of his medals at Sunday’s antiwar march.

A fantastic antiwar video is going viral, it's well worth a watch. It truly is fantastic. After the whole KONY2012 scam, here is a video that we can all help go viral. Please vote up, watch and spread this around social media.
The last quote in the story tells it all. The message of the Tea party movement will be "moderated" by 2010. It really is a republican movement and they simply want their own tyrant in charge. The method will be the same and the result will be the same.
In the face of the government's attempts to silence antiwar activism, libertarians and socialists came together to protest. The object of their outrage was the series of raids conducted by the FBI on antiwar activists in Minnesota, Chicago, Michigan, and North Carolina; and the issuance of subpoenas to appear before a grand jury to many of the same. While the government claims that the raids are seeking evidence of material support of terrorism, the peace activists insist that it is a fishing expedition intended to harass.
Anyone else tired of the media attacking protesters based on one or two signs? Tired of hearing people chastise a movement that they have never interacted with? It happens to both the Occupy movement and the Tea Party movement.
