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

Are there any updates about how the situation is being dealt with? Was

there a GA announcement? Are there signs made or a strategy for when

she arrives?


I'm worried about her arriving and managing to blend in with people

who understandably don't know who she is and what she really



I get off work at 6 and will come down to the site just in case, but I

think she'll probably arrive between now and the late evening, as she

is supposed to travel to Florida at some point today.
