Subject:   Re: [september17discuss] Fwd: Revolutionaries Live! kicks off THIS THURSDAY in NYC
 

Instead of having us leave such a strategic location and dwindle our numbers, why not have them come to us. The revolution is being debated right now in Liberty plaza and advertising that it will happen somewhere else is not very helpful.

Dear Fellow Wall Street Occupiers,

Consider taking a break and coming from this talk with Ivan Marovic, one of the strategic minds behind the revolution that displaced Milosevic in Belgrade. He was also involved in advising Egyptian revolutionaries. He's a blast. It's hosted by the Yes Men:

The revolution will be debated. Starting this Thursday, come meet the revolutionaries who have changed or are currently changing the world.

Revolutionaries Live! kicks off at the Hemispheric Institute, 20 Cooper Square 5th floor, New York, with the great Ivan Marovic, one of the founders of Otpor, the student resistance movement that played a critical role in the downfall of Slobodan Milosevic in 2000. After Milosevic's fall, Marovic began consulting with various pro democracy groups worldwide and became one of the leading trainers in the field of civil resistance. Ivan will speak about the role of humor and creative activism in the struggles he's helped to guide.

See you Thursday! And visit www.yeslab.org/cat for the full list of this fall's events.

The Yes Lab
