Occupy Philly answers your questions at 11 a.m. today

What, you haven't had time to visit a General Assembly meeting of the Occupy Philadelphia crowd and use the "human microphone" down at City Hall's Dilworth Plaza?  Well here is your chance to ask the protesters questions about their movement anyway.  Philly.com will be hosting a live chat at 11 a.m. today with three of the Occupy Philadelphia members.  You can access the chat here.

The chat's subject is the general strike Occupy Philadelphia has called for today to show support for fellow movement members in Oakland, Calif.  You can read more about that here.

But these chats rarely stick to one subject.  A big unanswered question for the local movement right now:  Will they relocate from Dilworth Plaza when long-planned construction starts on a $50 million project to renovate the area?
