Town Square has been awesome, way to go Library! We got lots of new donations and many books for Tucson. Our next event for Operation Book B0mb is Thursday March, 1 at Word Up with Chris Hedges: 176th & Broadway: be there. Deliveries are still coming into SIS for Tucson—don’t stamp them, we’re sending them right out.
Illuminator on Saturday, should be cool. We need to pull about 6 boxes of books to load up for Friday.
DA updates: Jaime sent a long email about F29, everybody should read it (POI some of us are homeless & don’t check email frequently).
Tuesday F28: 4pm at Union Square = Don’t suppress OWS march to Liberty Park
Wednesday F29: Bryant Park ALEC action with + brigades 9am-12pm. Pop-up occupation begins at 9 am. Non-arrestable? stay at the pop-up. From 11 am, marches leave from the steps of NYPL → BofA (yellow). BofA HQ (red). Also on Wednesday at 10: Tudor City → Pfizer.
If anyone’s doing anything, tell Jaime.

Carts—our tires got slashed in SIS. we need new carts. shopping carts have artistic merit.
Carmine is looking awesome. un-oppressive but impressive. let’s have a party when it’s done.
we need shopping carts, shallow shelves and some paint.
end of a quick meeting. thanks everybody!
