One of the reasons I haven´t been giving out the sept 17th google

group as much is because I have been waiting for this Rise up thing


appear. Remember all the problems that people had with the sept 17th

google group back in the GA´s Tompkins Sq Park days?


I have always defended the sept 17th google group as many great ideas

have been produced through it. But I understand that people are

concerned about there being a communication problem between here and

the square. Which there probably is.



Whatever happened to that Rise up thing? There is still not a


for the NYCGA to communicate as a whole. Only google groups for each

working group (if we are lucky!).
