OWS General Assembly on FREE Friday at MoMA
Mic Check Mic Check!. The General Assembly was held amidst the Sanja Ivekovic exhibition on Women's Liberationist Lady Rosa Luxembourg.
OWS reminded that it was the protests of the 1970s that yielded FREE nights at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
Furthermore, we feel that MoMA should Occupy Sotheby's who have locked out art workers. On 13 January OWS unfurled and hung a banner exhorting MoMA to stop Sotheby's lockout of workers. The banner was seized by MoMA. This evening it was returned to OWS by the Head of Facilities, without comment from MoMA. OWS will wait for an answer from MoMA on taking action against Sotheby's. We will be here FREE Fridays peaceably until we get an answer.
The unfurled banner was marched out of MoMA after the General Assembly.
