I have been working as a street medic at Occupy Wall Street since October 1st, 2011. I am currently with the Occupy Bus Tour (http://occupybustour.wordpress.com/). We have a bus that is powered by a dual diesel & waste vegetable oil fuel system. We also have solar panels that provide enough electricity to power a small house. We are traveling across the country to provide solidarity, mutual aid and succor to Occupiers, activists, the homeless and people in need everywhere. We are the first Mobile Food Not Bombs chapter, which means we serve free vegan and vegetarian food to anyone who is hungry. We have two street medics on board, which means we provide free emergency first aid as well as herbal medicine, homeopathic medicine, Traditional Chinese medicine and other alternative medicines and continuing care aid to anyone in need -- all free. We are equipped with activist literature so that we can set up a free OWS Info Table. We carry an assortment of good books so that we can set up a free People's Library. Our solar panels allow us to provide free power-recharging for phones, computers, cameras and more. We also provide a free Comfort Station that carries an assortment of clothes, personal hygiene items and camping equipment. We have multimedia and computer equipment that enables us to document every part of this endeavor. More than that, we bring ourselves to show that it is possible to live the solutions we seek. We will Occupy everywhere we go, and we need your help.
Please spread the word. We are in need of funds to purchase fuel, maintenance and replacement parts for the bus. We also need funds to re-stock our medical supplies, our food pantry and our comfort station. We always need good books for our library and activist literature for our Info Table.Of course, we gladly accept non-monetary donations --and actually prefer such over money. Money is simply another tool to use, and can be used properly--which is another way we seek to live the solution.
Thank you. We greatly appreciate your solidarity and mutual aid.
