She was at the UN a couple days ago. I reached out to the main organizers of the Yemeni community in NYC who brought her (and who are pro-OWS), to have her come to OWS, but her schedule hasn't yet permitted it. Will keep trying.

� � � Gonzalo Palomo from Spain is gonna be in New York from November
6-10.He would be an excellent guest speaker. Comrade Gonzalo is from
the legendary Confederation National del Trabajo (CNT). The CNT is a
libertarian industrial union that lead perhaps one of the best
examples of a democratic "occupy" movement in history! �In 1936 the
CNT lead the Spanish revolution in which worker's occupied factories,
peasants occupied farms, and popular assemblies replaced the roles of
the state in Barcelona and broader Catalonia.
� � � � Today the CNT is active in the workers' struggle in Spain and
was one of the first unions in Spain to support the 15M movement.
Gonzalo could discuss historical and current work of the CNT and
lessons that we can learn from our brothers and sisters of the Spanish
occupy movement. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone knows how
Gonzalo could be a guest Speaker.
