The War On Occupy Persists As Peaceful Protesters Face Continued Arrested
Posted by A Better People on November 15, 2012 at 4:35am

(MintPress) – Twenty-five U.S. military veterans stood at a memorial site Oct. 7 with the intent of honoring those who have fallen before them while serving their country. In the midst of their service at the New York Memorial, they were handcuffed and taken to jail. The freedom they had fought for was taken away, at least temporarily.


It was the 11th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan, and veterans were gathering to read the names of those who had lost their lives. Their tribute was guarded by police, who were enforcing the memorial’s opening hours in a way not common in the city’s other patriotic venues. It was, according to those present at that gathering, a move by police to intimidate and break up the patriotic memorial, simply because it was sponsored by Veterans For Peace, which has been associated with the Occupy movement.


Among those arrested in the midst of the memorial was a 92-year-old veteran, who was slapped with plastic cuffs and taken to jail with his fellow comrades.
