Grad Center folks will meet in the lobby at 3:45pm for a caravan to leave at 4pm sharp (another group will also leave at 4:15pm if ou can’t make the first caravan) for a mass student/labor/community rally at *Foley Square* that will march to Liberty Plaza, the site of Occupy Wall Street.

More info about the rally:

Union workers and community members impacted by the economic crisis have been demanding that Wall Street and the wealthiest New Yorker’s pay their fair share of taxes.

Let’s march down to Wall Street to welcome the protesters and show the faces of New Yorkers hardest hit by corporate greed.

We’ll be meeting up and assembling at 4:30 at Foley Square, march past City Hall, and meet up with our brothers and sisters at Zuccotti Park and unite in solidarity. #occupywallstreet organizers, labor leaders, and members of community organizations will speak to the assembly about Why We Stand United!
