Our executive editor Rose Pike stopped by the medical tent at Occupy Philly on Nov. 16. The encampment surrounds historic City Hall in downtown Philadelphia. The medical tents are stocked with donated medical basics such as Vitamin C and bandages. They also serve as a refuge from cold and wet weather.
While there, Rose ran into Ben Cohen, of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, who dished out Cherry Garcia and Schweddy Balls ice cream to Occupy Philly protesters. Ben and his partner, Jerry Greenfield, have served ice cream at a number of Occupy protests around the country.
