Occupy Houston Moving Ahead As Always After Shots Fired
There was gunfire yesterday at Occupy Houston in Tranquility Park.
At first report, the gunman had nothing to do with Occupy Houston or with any ideological motive opposed to Occupy Houston or Occupy Wall Street.
Nobody was hurt except for the gunman who was wounded by Houston police.
Thank you to Houston police who risked their safety to apprehend the gunman. I hope the shooter gets the help he needs. The Houston Chronicle reported that he was 21 years old. I hope he can find his way at some point.
At Occupy Houston, there was still some press around in the evening after the shooting.
But the nightly general assembly went on as usual.
I was at Occupy Houston in the evening, but not at the time of the shooting.
Occupy efforts across the country are meeting in their home cities, and are sharing ideas online for the next round of the movement.
Please consider supporting Occupy as they speak on behalf of the 99%. We all have the ability to advocate and speak up for ourselves
