If you’re at Hunter College that day, a speak-out will occur at 1pm outside the Hunter West bldg at 68th and Lexington

then…

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!

  • [...] By now ya’ll know what’s going on at Occupy Wall Street. Today marks the 19th day of the protest, and here in NYC, 15 unions and well over 20 (and still counting) local community organizations and political action groups will join the movement from a march from Foley Square back down to Zuccotti Park. That march kicks off at 4:30. CUNY students have been planning a school system-wide walkout to join the march, with different schools devising different meeting spots, caravans, speak outs, and small marches down to the big march. You can research what your school has going on if you’re interested, but so far I’ve found specific details for the CUNY Grad Center and Hunter College. [...]
