Occupy Radio
People are getting very very little support from Gov. They have no idea what is going on or where to go for services. Is there a way we can leverage our contacts at WBAI or do we have pirate radio we can use to broadcast important information for folks?
Volunteer army
People in lower manhattan are in dire need and we have a lot of folks who have offered to help. Can we get them to lower manhattan to help out?
