Subject:   [september17discuss] WTC Workers Visit Liberty Square Today
 

The World Trade Center workers from various construction unions always come

to the park on their lunch hour; they did not necessarily come to see us.

I've been talking to them about their unions all week; they are very

receptive to our message. It's great that other people engaged them

Thursday. We need a labor oriented flyer, which the Labor Working Group can

create, on why occupy wall street supports labor and why trade unionists

should support occupy wall street.

Great Lauren, Sorry I missed your comment before. Hopefully they'll

stop by again so we can talk to them more about this. Who has

pictures from Wednesday?
