I have been away from new york alot recently and am currently in georgia for the troy davis funeral, which was yesterday but the make up of the occupation would need to be different. We also admit the world as it is, this society as it is, not as we would  desIre it.   And,  we have to acknowledge the great disparities in necessities Based on race and nationalities, and the greatly disproportionate levels of oppressed peoples who are in dire circumstances. Brooklyn is a borough mainly of people of color, so there is the need to be in solidarity with the most oppressed n mOst dispossessed and we must reflect that in the march and not be insensitive and not run the risk of angering communities we need to take pains to include. Writing from  a phone, sorry for capitalizations and duplications. Will return monnday and will see you alll downtown.
