On the 23rd, the GA agreed to hold a highly abbreviated meeting so that Occupiers could attend the Trayvon Martin rally and OCRAC event. Below are the minutes for this meeting:
Proposal - A7 Freedom Feast Funding
Proposes to procure $1000 to provide materials for April 7th Freedom Feast, co-operated by Food Not Bombs. Unspent funds will be returned. Donations will be collected to recoup cost. Donations will be split 50-50 with OC and Food Not Bombs.
Proposal - Move GA Outside
Proposes to move GA outside to LaSale and Jackson starting March 26 (Monday) until April 7, when GA moves to the Horse as previously
Information regarding the $1000: Gas, supplies, and man-hours alone account for $650. Most of the food will be donated. As comparison, the cost of a similar meal provided by a professional catering company would be $18 per person.
