By now ya’ll know what’s going on at Occupy Wall Street. Today marks the 19th day of the protest, and here in NYC, 15 unions and well over 20 (and still counting) local community organizations and political action groups will join the movement from a march from Foley Square back down to Zuccotti Park. That march kicks off at 4:30. CUNY students have been planning a school system-wide walkout to join the march, with different schools devising different meeting spots, caravans, speak outs, and small marches down to the big march. You can research what your school has going on if you’re interested, but so far I’ve found specific details for the CUNY Grad Center and Hunter College.
For those of you not in NYC and looking to get involved, check out the Occupy Colleges facebook page and their twitter account. There is a nation-wide student walkout planned for noon today, with 75 schools participating so far.
