Subject:   [september17discuss] Re: Staten Island Rally in Support of OWS gets plugged in SI Advance

OK, well, just updating my prior message to say that at the solidarity

rally in front of SI Borough Hall, I received a flyer telling me that

there will actually be an Occupy Staten Island, with first meeting

happening tomorrow, Nov. 13, at 1 pm in the Staten Island Mall Food

Court. Planning to see you Staten Islanders in the mall tomorrow

(hoping that I can find the spot OK, because in all my accumulated six

or seven years of living on the North Shore of Staten Island, I never

before had any incentive to go down to the Staten Island Mall).
