FED UP DISCUSSION:
People started Occupying May 1. Have come to GA to seek support. Actions has endorsed it. They want to get food from the OE kitchen, so need GA approval. Some concern about the process that got the Occupy Outpost started. Some feel like it's not a good project, others that it's a real winner and very important for our presence in the community.
