This is a message from across the pond about a transatlantic comms

meeting taking place next Monday, 3/19 @ 1:30pm EST!

 

This call is open to all but may be of most interest and usefulness to 

media / tech / external comms individuals and groups from each

occupation / assembly.

 

The meeting is being convened to connect the European and Occupy US

movements, and to discuss the global newswire project now being set up

by folks from Take the Square, Interoccupy and the People’s Assemblies

global platforms.
