Response to Major Hogwash (Reply #72)

93. My local Occupy runs a weekly free medical clinic out of a bus downtown.

If you think it is 'only about occupying a fricking park in NYC' that is because you are not paying attention. When I pointed this out to the last 'they do nothing' poster, I asked how their Centrist Free Clinic was going. I asked what they do to help those in need, I was told this 'I pay my taxes, fuck Occupy'. Nice stuff.

Occupy Medical
What free universal health care looks like

Itís a chilly April day with bursts of sunshine interspersed with blustery wind and rain. Itís not the worst day to be on the streets of Eugene, but itís not the best day either, especially if youíre ill. The cold wind cuts through you and the rain soaks you, making the shaking and chills of fever feel that much worse; the moments of sun remind you that you have nowhere warm and dry to be, and no one to take care of you.

What do you do if you are homeless, uninsured or just plain broke and youíre sick? Where do you go if you do have a home but the waiting list is too long at the clinic or your insurance isnít good enough to get you the care you need?

On Sundays from noon until 4 pm you can walk up to the former bloodmobile painted red and white and emblazoned ďOccupy Medical Mobile Clinic,Ē thatís parked downtown at the Park Blocks and get anything from a Band-Aid to a prescription for heart medicine. You can also get food, a haircut and proof that someone cares.
