OK, GA is starting in Zuccotti Park. I'm going to LT as long as it goes. #nycga #ows
20:05 pm
I will switch to @LibertySqGA, @LibertySqGA2 and @LibertySqGA3 as needed. #nycga #ows
20:08 pm
We're working out facilitation. Someone announced that there was vandalism during the march today. "This is unacceptable." #nycga #ows
20:09 pm
Daniel and Stefano will be "Stairs" tonight (facilitation). #nycga #ows
20:09 pm
There's no one here from Minutes. Hmm. Sounds like we're going to make do with abbreviated minutes on paper. #nycga #ows
20:13 pm
Working group reportbacks. Housing! Review of #d6. "We took over a building and gave it to this family!" Looking successful, keeping it.
20:15 pm
Structure WG is reforming! Next, John. "I'm reading a text message I just got. #OWS dinner is now being served at 56 Walker." (Ugh.) #nycga
20:16 pm
Ted: "A bunch of awesome occupiers went down to DC to show support for #BradleyManning; an #occupier interrupted the proceedings to..."
20:16 pm
Cont'd: "...state that he was a hero." Also, Ted is working to organize an Open Source overtaking of the 2012 Ball Drop. #nycga #ows
20:16 pm
Cont'd: "We're going to do this transparently and legally and want autonomous actions too, but want folks to see us live in 2012." #nycga
20:17 pm
CQ: "How many ppl went down for Bradley Manning? Did he see you in courtroom?" A: "30 went down; court room was small." #nycga #ows
20:18 pm
Cont'd: "It's an illegitimate trial; there's a biased judge who is denying valid witnesses." "We wouldn't be here if not for him." #nycga
20:23 pm
Next, movement groups have been getting together to "create a clearing house where folks are coordinating mass statements." #nycga #ows
20:25 pm
OK, we're moving to the agenda. There's the Constitution Working Group again, then the D6 Action Team, then the 3rd item is from OccupyFarms
20:27 pm
...4th, Housing proposal, 5th, truck drivers who lost work. There's more. Emergency proposals will be heard first.
21:02 pm
Sorry for the silence; I made an emergency proposal to end GA and it didn't reach modified consensus. #nycga #ows
21:03 pm
Next Emergency proposal deals with some property damage that supposedly happened today during the march. #nycga #ows
21:04 pm
Stairs: "Do people want to hear proposal now, or fit it somewhere into the agenda?" #nycga #ows
21:07 pm
The prop is to state that we'll take responsibility for vandalism that occurs during our marches, if we agree #OWS is responsible. #nycga
21:08 pm
CQ: "How are you going to determine whether we're responsible or not?" Says it's wishy-washy and could be used against us. #nycga
21:08 pm
A: "It happened as #OWS was walking by." They think they know who it is. "We're a peaceful protest; we don't need that." #nycga #ows
21:11 pm
CQ: "Are you saying take responsibility?" A: "Only if it's determined that we are responsible." #nycga #ows
21:13 pm
Someone is concerned that if we are wrong about who did it, we could get someone in trouble. #nycga #ows
21:13 pm
Someone else's concern: "Anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law," skeptical it was us. #nycga #ows
21:14 pm
A: "The point of this is just to send a message that we care, *if* this was our fault." #nycga #ows
21:15 pm
Concern: "I'm highly concerned about doing anything until we view the security footage, which I'm sure exists." #nycga #ows
21:16 pm
Bobby's concern: "Starbucks is a violent corporation," based on business practices. Feels property destruction is not violence. #nycga #ows
21:17 pm
Cont'd: "We should let sleeping dogs lie; we don't want to help the police to use this against us." #nycga #ows
21:17 pm
A: "This is to distance us from this event." Says throwing a brick is violent, unlike breaking a lock on a foreclosed home. #nycga #ows
21:19 pm
Ted accepts the friendly amendment that we could make it a general statement we don't condone violent action. #nycga #ows
21:20 pm
Next FA: "Write a message that condemns violent action and condones personal responsibility, draft tonight, don't point to speculation.."
21:20 pm
Cont'd: "...re this particular incident." #nycga #ows
21:20 pm
RT @sugarmaple77200: @LibertySqGA accident ??? someone sat down too heavily in a window
21:21 pm
Language: "We believe in corporate responsibility and individual responsibility and do not condone violence." #nycga #ows
21:22 pm
Next, "we shouldn't compose any language at all until we talk to the lawyers." Ted agrees. #nycga #ows
21:23 pm
Oh, the amender wants to table the proposal and have Ted bring the language written with help of lawyers back to GA. #nycga #ows
21:26 pm
Ted would like to make the statement to Legal, then ask them what they think before publicly releasing it. #nycga #ows
21:26 pm
That sates that FA, but Bobby reiterates that he feels that GA should have final say after Legal reviews the text. #nycga #ows
21:27 pm
A: "To address those concerns, if Legal doesn't have problems, can we release it? Otherwise bring it back to GA." #nycga #ows
21:31 pm
OK, moved to blocks. Bobby is blocking b/c he knows ppl who have been put away for property destruction as "terrorist act", doesn't...
21:32 pm
Cont'd: ...want movement to put ppl in that position by undermining them. #nycga #ows
21:33 pm
OK, so Ted is agreeing to draft a proposal, bring it to GA after running by Legal. #nycga #ows
21:35 pm
So now we're consenting to create a group to create language, then run it by legal; if they don't change it they don't hv to bring to GA.
21:37 pm
OK, we're now checking for blocks. Someone from Florida says "please be very careful about what you start taking responsibility for." #nycga
21:38 pm
So, I blocked at the last second and pointed out that this stuff is really tricky and has taken weeks to be resolved in other cities. #nycga
21:39 pm
Ted took my language as a FA: "#OWS does not throw bricks through windows; that's not how we roll." #nycga #ows
21:39 pm
Bobby is still going to block because this could potentially restrict our ability to stand in solidarity in the future. #nycga #ows
21:40 pm
"This is a bigger question." Ted: "I still think we can say #OWS does not throw bricks through windows," w/o undermining how we...
21:40 pm
Cont'd: ..feel about specific incidents where culpability is in question. #nycga #ows
21:41 pm
Bobby and Ted work it out -- the language will include some other language and also provoke a future discussion. #nycga #ows
21:42 pm
Next up, Bob from Constitution WG. "This proposal consists of 7 petitions for redress of grievances." #nycga #ows
21:43 pm
"The 1st amendment guarantees freedom of worship, press, assembly, but also it has an accountability clause." Last 10 words. #nycga
21:43 pm
Cont'd: "The government has been violating provisions of the Constitution." W/ scholars' help, they have 7 petitions for redress. #nycga
21:44 pm
It asks them to respond w/in 40 days, while rebutting the legal and factual statements w/in and comply w/ instructions. #nycga #ows
21:46 pm
"Over 2 weeks ago, we presented this proposal at a GA for the purpose of allowing a 1-week review." Distrod 1000+ copies. #nycga #ows
21:49 pm
So, Bob and his WG want us to endorse these petitions so they can get 9 million signatures, which is a "magic number" for some reason.#nycga
21:50 pm
CQ: "I'm concerned that what you're asking us to do is to approve this entire 30 pages as a whole." Wants to divide question. #nycga #ows
21:52 pm
Bob says that we're moving forward 1 by 1 if we'd like. Someone asks him if ppl's reactions last time, and their concerns w/ his other...
21:54 pm
...sites, including accusing Obama of lying about his birth, and w/ them not using #OWS process, changed his approach or proposal. #nycga
21:55 pm
Bob: "My wife and I were ready to vote for Obama until we read the decision of Judge [Surik?], relating to the words "natural born"..."
21:55 pm
Daniel PoPs him, but he wants to finish. "This citizen had legitimate concern b/c his research, right or wrong, meant both that you..."
21:56 pm
Cont'd: "...had to be born a citizen and on US soil. Obama asked to dismiss the case because..." Dan PoPs again. #nycga #ows
21:57 pm
He's answering the question. "The proposal hasn't changed b/c concerns about past work outside of #OWS aren't part of the proposal." #nycga
21:58 pm
Someone else asks the same question. "No, it hasn't. The concerns aren't political concerns; they're legal concerns about legality." #nycga
21:58 pm
PoP: "This crowd is too small to have any consensus." Asks for a temp check on whether the crowd is too small. #nycga #ows
21:59 pm
Daniel says a few ppl say it's too small; points that if it's too small for this proposal, it's too small for any. #nycga #ows
22:01 pm
Now they're formally temp-checking on whether we should continue. It got confusing but I think we're continuing. #nycga #ows
22:05 pm
OK, Stairs are straw polling for tabling for a later/larger GA. We don't have consensus, so it's going to continue. #nycga #ows
22:05 pm
Bob: "Could I just hear, one after the other, what the issues are?" Someone else wants a 90% modified consensus vote. #nycga #ows
22:06 pm
Next CQ: "I'm very cold, and getting very worn out, and I've been looking at a # of suggestions of how to get our constitution back." #nycga
22:07 pm
Cont'd: "I'm very much in favor of many of the proposals hv been made. Haven't looked at this yet, but we should be looking at many things."
22:07 pm
Cont'd: "I don't think we can do justice to this tonight." Bob is upset because he has made such an effort to come down. #nycga #ows
22:08 pm
Bob: "We've posted these on OccupyTheConstitution.org! We've held teach-ins! What else can we do?" #nycga #ows
22:08 pm
Bob: "Each one of these has the same format," laying down specific violations and then seeking specific remedies. #nycga #ows
22:10 pm
He repeats the earlier explanation and insists "there's no danger to the movement." "We've had the constitution WG here; we agreed on..."
22:10 pm
Cont'd: "...the issues." "It's non-political; everybody should vote, everybody should do due diligence." #nycga #ows
22:11 pm
We're out of the allocated time for this proposal, so Stairs is temp-checking adding more time. Someone blocks, hahah. #nycga #ows
22:12 pm
Stairs: "It's a problem w/ the GA structurally that coming to consensus on a really large issue, if the item can't be introduced and..."
22:12 pm
Cont'd: "...decided upon in the same night," new people come to the next time and we have a hard time getting clarity. #nycga #ows
22:14 pm
Bobby raises a PoP, in concern w/ Stairs' editorial comments. Other stairs: "We didn't have consensus on giving more time ATM." #nycga #ows
22:14 pm
Stairs now temp-checking tabling the proposal. Next PoP: "I heard from this fellow who I don't know who has raised these issues last..."
22:15 pm
Cont'd: "...time. I'll tell you where I'm at; I want to defend..." Stairs notes we're discussing whether to give this more time. #nycga #ows
22:17 pm
Bob is mad at us. "So, Occupy Wall Street is against the Constitution." No, we say. #nycga #ows
22:17 pm
It's tabled. Next proposal: 702 Vermont / the #D6 house! #nycga #ows
22:18 pm
702VT: "On 12/6, #OWS, working in conjunction w/ local grassroots community organizations began working w/ a family to occupy..." #nycga
22:18 pm
Cont'd: "...an illegally-foreclosed house and to turn it into a new home." Many are defending it. "In order to remain, we need materials..."
22:19 pm
Cont'd: "...to make it more sustainable." Points out we are the flagship occupation and set tone for movement. #nycga #ows
22:20 pm
"We request the GA make this emblematic of the next phase: to take it back, and make banks pay big time." No heat, water, kitchen, showers.
22:20 pm
"Generally, a few ppl fronted a # of costs. This proposal includes a reimbursement of those costs." Food, sleeping materials, sanitation...
22:22 pm
"We're asking for consensus on this budget proposal." The total is $9576.30. The details of the proposal are on nycga.net. #nycga #ows
22:23 pm
Essentially it's for sustaining the occupiers w/ heat, electricity, food, and then supplies for next phase of cleanup/rehab. #nycga #ows
22:24 pm
Old expenses make up about $5k, things ppl put down ahead of time that they'd like reimbursement for. #nycga #ows
22:24 pm
Stacking CQs. CQ: "Tuesday or Thursday at GA, a woman came from Sanitation and asked for her own money. Is that part of this?" #nycga #ows
22:25 pm
A: "Jordan from Sanitation got money for sanitation; that's not included in this." They're helping clean other buildings as well. #nycga#ows
22:25 pm
Next CQ: "Is this coming from Sanitation, DA, or O4O?" A: "It's coming from the #D6 team that worked with DA on this action." #nycga #ows
22:26 pm
CQ again: "I do sort of question the legitimacy of 25 of us making this decision, but we should pass it. They're doing great work."#nycga
22:27 pm
CQ: "Can we turn the electricity on?" A: "Working on ways to hook up with ConEd w/ donated help, also $ for bike generator in here." #nycga
22:28 pm
CQ: "You started answering about using alternative techniques for power," are they thinking about solar, other stuff? #nycga #ows
22:28 pm
A: "That's part of our plan; it's a flagship building" and family is totally down for ways to make it radically sustainable. #nycga #ows
22:28 pm
A cont'd: "We delayed for awhile due to legal issues, but it looks like we may actually really be given this house." Can do a lot! #nycga
22:28 pm
22:29 pm
@OccupyWallSt it's at liberty squaaaare
22:30 pm
CQ: "Will you need more later?" A: "There's about 14 point ppl - not even "ppl involved," and we're working on other ways to get $." #nycga
22:31 pm
Someone proposes we make a new We Are the World and do "some sort of fundraiser telecast on livestream" to get folks to support this! #nycga
22:31 pm
OK, no more CQs; hearing Concerns. No concerns. "When there's no concerns, we sort of assume we've come to consensus." Restating proposal.
22:32 pm
"Prop is to allocate funds for 702 Vermont, part of a national action. The amount being allocated for immediate needs and reimbursement..."
22:32 pm
Cont'd: "...for this house, & also to be used for future home occupations, is $9k [whatever I said before. -Ed.]" Any blocks? No! Consensus!
22:33 pm
Stairs: "In 10 minutes! Give yourselves a hand." OK, next proposal is for Housing Group. "It's time-sensitive; need to know by midnight."
22:35 pm
We've consensed on hearing Housing next. After surveying other proposers, we've also got Occupy Farms and Visions and Goals. #nycga #ows
22:35 pm
Housing! "It's really simple; the Housing WG is seeking funding to continue to subsidize our stay at SPSA and Park Slope (the churches)."
22:36 pm
Cont'd: "They're housing an average of 100 ppl a night, and we want to continue this for the next 2 weeks." Asking for $5,200 for 2 wks.
22:36 pm
Cont'd: "Also, I'd like to add that housing has secured a structure for long-term housing that won't require being paid for." #nycga #ows
22:37 pm
But it won't be available immediately. Still, great news! "The way things are right now, this will be the last time we make this proposal."
22:37 pm
The new structure needs some work done, but it's not "totally extensive" and should be done in the next few weeks. #nycga #ows
22:38 pm
CQ: "What's the $ being spent on?" A: "$300 at SPSA, $100 at Park Slope." Being used to subsidize utilities at those churches. #nycga #ows
22:41 pm
CQ: Someone asks for paperwork, just b/c others always get asked for the same details. Wants names at churches. #nycga #ows
22:42 pm
A doesn't know the names of the ppl in churches, b/c he wasn't in that meeting. He's just bringing the proposal. #nycga #ows
22:43 pm
A cont'd: "The paperwork: Finance has that info. I went to try to get it but no one was in the Finance area." Due to actions today. #nycga
22:43 pm
@OccupyMom That's b/c #GA is at #zuccotti, not 60 Wall. @occupywallst
22:43 pm
CQ: "Is there any contingency plan you have in case the new structure has not come in w/in these 2 weeks?" #nycga #ows
22:44 pm
A: "We are running multiple options; we have a big long list of places that need to be checked out and looked into." #nycga #ows
22:44 pm
@OccupyMom @occupywallst we actually are at liberty square. <3
22:46 pm
OK, no more CQs. Any concerns? One more question: "How many staying at each church?" 100 capacity at SPCA; 30 at Pk Slope. #nycga #ows
22:49 pm
No concerns; any blocks? "I'd block anyone blocking this proposal," someone says. No blocks! Consensus! #nycga #ows
22:50 pm
Visions and Goals were next but b/c they are great humanitarians, they will pass their revision out and get feedback on sidebar. #nycga #ows
22:51 pm
Next, OccupyFarms! Wilson is an environmentalist and biologist. "I've been working on small farms for years and I've seen how wonderful..."
22:51 pm
Cont'd: "...and important it is to be connected to where your food comes from." If #OWS is addressing power imbalances, Wall Street...
22:52 pm
Cont'd: ...is one, but agricultural industries are also vastly powerful. "What OccupyFarms is doing - 2 wks ago, this was an idea..." #nycga
22:52 pm
Cont'd: "...now we have 9 farms that are ready to go." He's sunk a lot of $ into this but "I don't care; this is a good direction for the.."
22:53 pm
Cont'd: "...movement to go in." Some are in NY, MA, VT, CT, NJ, and VA? #nycga #ows
22:53 pm
"So, what we're asking is $3000 to fund 24 round-trips thru winter to bring people up and get us moving." #nycga #ows
22:54 pm
"I work on a farm in Westchester, 15acres, we're able to feed 400 people." Plus more. OccupyFarms' farm is 56 acres. #nycga #ows
22:54 pm
"The only reason we're having issues is because we lack the $ to get the ball rolling." #nycga #ows
22:55 pm
"Down the road, this could be a revenue-generator for the farm; the potential is incredible. If we want to build a sustainable future.."
22:55 pm
Cont'd: "...this is the direction to go in." Total: $3000 for gas and food for outreach efforts in the next few months. #nycga #ows
22:56 pm
"We have most of these ppl already, and I've been doing a lot of outreach; we just need funds to start doing more." #nycga #ows
22:56 pm
"So, that'd be $3000 for food and gas to build relationships and bring ppl up to the farms." #nycga #ows
22:57 pm
"People are really, truly trying to get behind us. This is just to get the ball rolling and to come back later for more $ once we..."
22:57 pm
Cont'd: "...have a clear budget." Opening stack for clarifying questions. #nycga #ows
22:57 pm
Corey's CQ: "I'm super-eager for this to happen, and I really want it to. But a few days ago, there was a $15k request that got denied.."
22:58 pm
Cont'd: "...because there was ambiguity and concern about costs like insurance" and idea that GA funds can't lead to profit. #nycga #ows
22:58 pm
A: "We've been having a lot of discussion about that, so that's why this proposal is only for transportation costs. We haven't..."
22:59 pm
Cont'd: "...been able to explore these ideas and solidify a plan." #nycga #ows
23:01 pm
CQ asks about the other farms. "Yes, 1 thing this $ would be used for, to get other farms involved in the conversation." #nycga #ows
23:01 pm
CQ: "Are you aware of co-operative spin-off efforts being made to create co-operative businesses?" A: "No, we'll hv to check" #nycga #ows
23:02 pm
CQ: "Would you be using pesticides or organics?" A: He's not sure, but assumes organic would fit better within our tradition. #nycga #ows
23:03 pm
CQ: "So, food would come back later? We're purchasing stake in the farms, yes?" A: "Yes." #nycga #ows
23:03 pm
And that brings us to concerns. C: "So, we're getting involved w/ these entities. Let's say you come back and ask for equipment, seed..."
23:04 pm
Cont'd: "...fertilizer, and we make that investment, and at some point we lost access to the farm." Foreclosure, family has change of heart.
23:04 pm
Cont'd: "How do we know we won't lose the money?" A: "That's one reason we are just getting these initial, exploratory costs." #nycga #ows
23:05 pm
A agrees that any heavy equipment or investment would need to hammered out in fine detail. #nycga #ows
23:05 pm
Someone speaks out that the family has a fall-back plan. "That makes me feel better, but I want some guarantee..." #nycga #ows
23:06 pm
Cont'd: "...that we're going to get $ back, or produce." Not pertinent to this specific request bt anything specific should be in writing.
23:06 pm
PoI: "The working group isn't going to be about making any specific investments- it'll be about outreach and movement building." #nycga
23:07 pm
(That being a change, or refinement, in focus.) #nycga #ows
23:07 pm
CQ: "As far as housing, where will you house ppl?" A: "We've been building some structures; some farms already have housing and can..."
23:07 pm
Cont'd: "...do an exchange." Says in the 2 weeks he's been up there, rejuvenative effects of new energy are apparent. #nycga #ows
23:08 pm
Cont'd: "As we build, we should be able to have a steady rotation of movement folks" through the farms. #nycga #ows
23:08 pm
CQ: "How many occupiers do you anticipate needing at a time?" A: "Well, not occupiers per say, but I've known people who have farmed..."
23:09 pm
Cont'd: "...organically and exceptionally managed 5 acres alone," if everyone works 15 hours a week we can farm large amnt of land/food.
23:09 pm
Next C: "What you're asking for is still for a business, and legally, OWS cannot do that." A: "No, we're asking for $ for transportation..."
23:10 pm
Cont'd: "...and food, to facilitate relationships between occupiers, farms, and between the farms." #nycga #ows
23:10 pm
Also, he wants them to have something in the city, and is worried about future expenses cropping up. #nycga #ows
23:11 pm
A: "I do understand the need to do things locally in the city - absolutely. The local limits are 240 miles, and this place is 150 away."
23:11 pm
Another A: "And we encourage all small farms in the city, and are trying to do as much outreach as we can." #nycga #ows
23:13 pm
Cont'd: "It just so happens that this family reached out to us." "We just want enough $ to plant this seed and let folks move forward."
23:13 pm
Jay's FA: "On Monday, the NYPD are going to release some army tents that were to be used here. There are 12 of them. We have no place..."
23:14 pm
Cont'd: "...to put them better than a farm." Asks we offer a portion of those to help farms better develop. #nycga #ows
23:14 pm
Stairs notes that he doesn't know if there is a prior allocation; we don't think there is and will make this contingent on availability.
23:15 pm
Proposers are adding a request for 4 of the large tents, if theyre not already allocated for other use. FA: reimburse past $300. #nycga #ows
23:16 pm
Proposers accept that. FA: "Please work w/ co-op group to try to integrate into their efforts!" Accepted. #nycga #ows
23:17 pm
