Subject:   [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Re: flow chart of Declaration of Occupation of New York City

I'd love help driving this project home! Help envisioning ways to do

this would be great.


This is the web presence we've got right now:


Working with the internet group on getting something better/integrated

with the ows website. not sure the timeframe on this.


print edition: even less certain timeframe. a few weeks out, at the

very least, I'd guess. Currently reaching out to silkscreen and

printing facilities- got some interest but nothing set yet.


I'm wondering what other avenues to share exist. If it's possible, I'd

love to see this printed in the occupy wall st. journal, as a start.

Who could I connect to to see if this can happen?
