to Catherine,
so let me get this straight you are sending a call out to occupy to
help yale - yale - yale school of art with an exhibition about
'occupy' not just like to know about it or attend the opening but
actually submit ideas and work UNBELIEVABLE - are people in occupy or
formerly in occupy not aware of class issues inherent in our struggle
economic and otherwise???

!!! BLOCK !!!

anyone who works with them is a traitor
