Members from a variety of progressive health care groups have been supporting and show up at the NYC Occupy Wall Street movement.
There is a health care for all working group active with the NYC general assembly. Activists affiliated with PNHP NY Metro, Health-Care Now and the Bronx-based Social Medicine group are all coordinating, with each other and the NYC General Assembly... as well as marching.
Our next event is a "teach-in/speak-out of healthcare workers for the 99%" Saturday, October 15 from 1:00-5:00pm at Washington Square Park, NYC.
There is a big march on the insurance companies tentatively planned for the afternoon Friday October 21. Details to follow.
There is a nascent Occupy Wall St: Health Care for All Working Group blog site which is mostly for collecting emails for notifying folks of events. And there is a facebook group Doctors for the 99%.
