1. Rangel Jobs Fair
Phil is reluctant to protest a jobs fair in Harlem. Bernie is also reluctant. Adam feels that we can do an informative leafleting about Rangel outsourcing jobs without doing a protest and avoid giving the impression that we are protesting jobseekers. Item needs further discussion.
2. Turner Action.
Sunday the 13th protest against Rep. Turner at swearing in ceremony at high school in Queens. We’ll only protest fundraiser afterwards if there is a crowd from the first that wants to stay for the 2nd. Phil will go to Zuccotti to meet people and bring them to Queens. Adam will go into event. Ruth will bring signs.
