Notes from the
General Assembly (GA)
Open Forum Meeting
Spencer Plaza, Wilmington
a new global justice movement
to confront a global crisis.
“Elite business interests—financiers, in the case of the U.S.—played a central role in creating the crisis, making ever-larger gambles, with the implicit backing of the government, until the inevitable collapse. More alarming, they are now using their influence to prevent precisely the sorts of reforms that are needed, and fast, to pull the economy out of its nosedive. The government seems helpless, or unwilling, to act against them.”
Simon Johnson, The Quiet Coup
Meeting started: 1433 hr
There’s been no safety meeting in the past couple of weeks. The focus has been to get more security watch activity. The proposal rules must be enforced. We need to get security up and running. This will start tonight.
Wed Mar 7, 4:30 is the city demonstrations special events public hearing at the city-county building.
Meeting yesterday at UD, OWS Roundtable, 20-25 people, students, faculty, community members. The political realities of the campus may inhibit starting an “Occupy UD.” They’re starting an alliance, and will meet again. We encouraged them to come to Occ DE GAs, and we’ll continue participating in their meetings.
The porta-potties are in dire need of service.
Meeting ended: 1500 hr
