Former U.S. Marine Scott Olsen, whose injury during clashes between Oakland police and protesters last month galvanized the Anti-Wall Street movement, has been released from the hospital, friends said on Friday.
“He is out of the hospital as of yesterday or today, thank goodness,” Adele Carpenter, 29, told Reuters.
Iraq Veterans Against the War spokeswoman Dottie Guy also confirmed Olsen’s release to Reuters.
Olsen is focused on healing right now, Carpenter told Reuters, but she added that “he is following the Occupy protests closely, as well as the vets march against police brutality today.”
“He sent words of affirmation to friends during the Oakland General Strike and has been excited to hear stories from people who could attend,” she said.
Occupy Oakland organizers say Olsen, 24, was hit in the head by a tear gas canister fired by police during a downtown Oakland confrontation on October 25. He was admitted to a local hospital in critical condition.
