A Facebook Logistics page has been set up to coordinate the URGENT NEED medical staff for the Occupy Detroit Movement to continue. Please share this page with others!
The Occupy Detroit movement has placed a call on their Facebook page calling for a urgent need for staff with medical experience to volunteer at the first aid assistance tent in Grand Circus Park.
According to organizer Julia Williams, one of the coordinators of the medical team, the tent is in immediate danger of closing down within 36 hours due to lack of qualified rotating volunteer staff members.
“The Occupy Detroit medical team has put out requests to everyone we can think of, emails have been sent -and will be resent- to physician groups, nurses, and others for staffing assistance, we are coming up empty”, Williams stated.
“Our point person, Helen, has been onsite there since Friday morning 24/7, and is there tonight with no, repeat no assistance. We have made numerous attempts to sign up people with firm time commitments, with only a few stalwarts signing on for scattered times. Our calendar has huge and daily gaps”, she replied.
“If Occupy Detroit is to maintain a medical first aid tent it needs to have people in it. We need help immediately,” Williams said.
