Subject:   Re: [september17discuss] The Occupy Wall Street Journal
 

Hi MAd Hatter et al.,

A quick background...

The Occupy Wall Street Journal was proposed to the public in an Arts &

Culture meeting Monday, over 60 people attended (the meeting went on til

2 pushing back the GA even!)

 

The proposal got favorable laughs and nods. I assumed we would get some

support for the project and we would hear about it at meetings or in

discussions groups. But as far as I know nothing came through the channels.

 

So how did that happen?

 

 

Best,

Antonio
