Emphasis will be placed on infiltrations, interruptions, slowdowns, and blockades undertaken by small action-teams rather than unified mass demonstrations.

The first session was held Saturday; a video posted to the group's Facebook page says demonstrators converged on the steps of Times Square for the first installment of the "People's Alarm":

There's homework: Follow up by posting photos, video and write-ups to Facebook and Twitter. And for those who make it through the entire workbook, there's some "extra credit":

If any fellow colleagues are kept in afterschool detention (jail), please make sure your AG follows through with jail support.
