Tuesday, October 30, 2012 :: Staff infoZine
By Kristopher Rivera - Veterans and members of the Occupy VA movement have anchored themselves at the front doors of the Department of Veterans Affairs building, even as Hurricane Sandy approaches.
Washington, D.C. - infoZine - Scripps Howard Foundation Wire - “We’ve been here for three weeks, and we ain’t going anywhere,” John Penley, 60, of Washington, said. “A hurricane can’t drive us out of here.”
The Occupy VA group has been camped in front of the VA since Oct. 4, when they asked to meet with officials with the VA. Two veterans of Occupy met with representatives from the VA on Oct. 15, but the vets said they were not satisfied with the meeting.
