Students, faculty, and staff can write their concerns about society, politics, and education on a Wall of Grievances which is set up in the Morris University Cafeteria.  The issues will be addressed at a rally around “The Rock” on the quad at 10 a.m. Wednesday. There will be a solutions and plan of action panel immediately afterwards at 11a.m in the Goshen Lounge.  The session will allow student organizations to identify an issue that affects them and then create solutions to the problem.  For more information, check out www.Facebook.com/OccupySIUE.
