Today ULU Marxists received a letter from a student at New York University (NYU), Cecilia Gingerich, who was a member of the University of London Marxist Society while studying in London in the spring of 2010. She is now a participant in Occupy Wall Street and in her letter gives a first hand account of her experience of the movement from the beginning, her narrowly escaping the mass arrest of the 700 protestors on October 1st and the impact that had on the movement in the following days. Now the unions have joined the protestors on Wall Street, along with walk-outs from high schools and colleges, which Cecilia has participated with students from her own university.
