This is great! Some of us haver organized the "We are the 99% Open Forum" which will happen daily at 6pm starting tomorrow with people explaining the recent May 15 movement in Spain, and continuing Sunday with communities from the middle east and south asia. I think it would be great to include this teach-ins in the Open Forum. Let's get together tomorrow at 6 at the stairs of Liberty Park and organize it!
