Minn. woman serves turkey to Occupy protesters

MINNEAPOLIS — A retired Plymouth woman is one of several chefs who provided a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal for anti-Wall Street protesters in Minneapolis.

Linda Thomson, 70, says she had no Thanksgiving plans and was thinking of a way to make the holiday meaningful. She says she and several friends decided to cook a meal for any protesters at the downtown plaza where demonstrations have been going on since Oct. 7.

She told the Associated Press by telephone Thursday that she brought enough turkey and fixings to serve about 25 people and that others brought food, too. She says about 50 protesters were fed.

Thomson says she wants to honor the young people who have braved cold Minnesota weather for an important principle. She says she shares their opposition to corporate greed.
