A Tribute to Dorli Rainey

Courage & Grace Under Fire

"Well free speech does have its limits as I found out as the cops shoved their bicycles into the crowd and simultaneously pepper sprayed the so captured protesters. If it had not been for my Hero (Iraq Vet Caleb) I would have been down on the ground and trampled. "

Meet Dorli Rainey Dorli, an 84 year old grandmother, is a former school teacher who has been active in local politics since the 1960s. She was the face of the Occupy movement for a moment last year (November) when Seattle PD pepper sprayed her in the face Local photojournalist, Josh Trujillo @joshtrujillo, caught the moment beautifully as she was held up by her colleagues. The 1 year anniversary of OWS in Seattle was celebrated by a Silent Flash Mob March #S17.
