OCCUPY The DOE

We headed over the try to catch a piece of the action at the Occupy DOE General Assembly on the steps of Tweed after the screening of our film at Teachers College and managed to catch the last 10 minutes. The steps of Tweed were still loaded with people. The GA will continue every Sunday at 12 noon in the atrium at 60 Broadway where further decisions on actions to take will be made.

The event was live streamed by techs from OWS. Look for link coming up.

Reminder - tomorrow -Occupy Cuomo: Tuesday, Nov. 8

Also - amazing at Liberty Plaza - David Crosby and Graham Nash doing a concert at 3-4PM.
