The following text was provided by people helping Scott Olsen, including IVAW and Occupy Wall Street:
Scott Olsen, 24, a Marine veteran who did two tours in Iraq, was hit by a police projectile during the brutal police crackdown on Occupy Oakland on 10/26. He is in serious but stable condition at an Oakland hospital with traumatic head injury. Scott is a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War. Donate to the Fund for Scott’s medical care here.
They also provided an address where flowers and cards can be sent to Scott:
USMC Scott Olsen
1411 East 31st Street
Oakland, CA 94602
I’ve been told via email that Scott’s mother is in route to California from Wisconsin, with the money being donated also helping to get her there.
News so far is that it’s going to be a long, hard recovery.
