Occupy Wall Street

Don’t hear much about him anymore, but the Rev. Jesse Jackson has appeared at Occupy Chicago and apparently last night at Occupy Wall Street. Apparently the NYPD was approaching the medical tent to tear it down. A group of protesters/occupiers linked arms to encircle the medical tent. Jesse Jackson appeared from out of nowhere and joined them. NYPD backed down.

Jackson is a veteran of the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s and 70s. If I recall correctly, he was also a close friend of Dr. Martin Luther King and was in Memphis when King was murdered.
