Subject:   [september17discuss] Re: Message from France's SOS Racisme about Frenc h National Front's possible arrival tomorrow at Zuccotti
 

I have no idea what time she (Marine Le Pen) will try to be there

tomorrow, all I have to go on is that newspaper article. I have done a

bit of research online and other than that article, which says she

will try to show up on Friday (tomorrow), other articles simply say

that she will try to show up while she is in the country. I think we

should expect her to arrive tomorrow during the day, but if she

doesn't materialize, stay vigilant over the weekend.
