IMHO, I feel that the emphasis must be on turn-out for November 17.

Personally, I am going to call everyone I know in the labor movement to push them to get out and push them to push their union to mobilize for N17 at 5pm in Foley Square.

This is great, but I think these organizations, and especially the CLC, could do one key thing: show up. Where is Vinnie? Can he come down to the park? What about Dennis Hughes, or someone else from the state fed?

I seriously doubt that they'll be able to arrange "accommodations" for folks living in the park, or event to establish a way to reclaim confiscated items, but they could come out to the park, speak to the press, etc.

Spoke with AFL and the CLC this morning. Recommended that the AFL issue an immediate statement and email blast condeming the clearing of the park. Also asked if CLC could help with legal aspects of the eviction - helping to make sure those arrested have strong legal council and to pressure the mayor for a quick release in addition establishing a means to reclaim confiscated items from the park. Finally, to make sure that accommodations can be taken care of for permanent park residents that were not arrested this morning along with providing space for those to go once released, in the absence of the park space. I will continue to keep them updated and to make requests as events unfold and we get more details about what happened inside the park. They are eager to do what they can to help.
In the interim, the main thing is to make sure that we make 11/17 mega huge!
