GA minutes, 17 October 2012

General Assembly partial minutes, Wed. 17 October 2012

 

Wide-ranging discussion of problems afflicting Occupy and correction strategies

 

Kumar:

Problem -- Continuity of people, ideas, location, access to GA.

Solutions -- Get more people to attend meetings. Need reliability, dependability.  Phone tree.  Need more accurate information on the website. Need ongoing campaign. Need one permanent location.

 

Lucky:

Need online/alternative voting procedure for people who can't attend GA.

 

Pete:

Focus and put pressure on lower-level, specific politicians and officials, like aldermen, instead of mayor, president, and congresspersons.

 

Ted:

"Occupy The State" rather than "Occupy Capitalism".

 

Lucky:

Need to change people's spirituality rather than structures, and all else will fall into place.
