Tuesday July 10 GA

Postby pgrott22 » Fri Jul 20, 2012 12:17 pm

Art is facilitating. Peter is taking the minutes. Fergus is the process advisor.

Plaedo starts the GA with a Morale exercise.

A motion is made to move off-site for a sensitive discussion.

Announcement:
Reid said that the name of the Foreclosure Actions Committee is now
also "OH-FAQ". Also, that committee is now an autonomous affiliate of
Take Back the Land, which wants community control of land and holds
that housing is a human right.

Agenda:

1. Discussion on the letter to our Senators, Merkley and DeFazio.
2. Discussion on what to do with the Fed-Up action after 7/11/2012

Committee Reports:
1. Com-Com needs new volunteers.
2. Morale is setting up a barter market at the end of August. Contact Plaedo.
3. Facilitation reports that according to a recent GA resolution,
there will be at each GA a process advisor/support person, and a copy
of the GA procedure on hand. Fergus has it on hand today.
4. Legal reports that we have one volunteer to get a citation at the
Occupy the Fed eviction. It might be unwise for anyone else to get
cited or arrested at the eviction. Leave personal belongings outside
the site after 3PM, 7/11/12.
5. The Tax the Rich Committee is now called the "Abolish Wealth
Inequality Committee." Meetings TBA. Insane Clown Posse was mentioned,
but the GA did not agree to endorse it.

Discussions:
1. Lea heard from Merkley's aide two possibilites: that Merkley could
support us directly, or that he could write the GSA and ask why the
permit was denied. It might be good to approach GSA with a detailed
list of complaints. In a temperature check, the GA approved forwarding
this list of complaints to Merkley's office.
2. How do we next occupy a site?
a. Who is willing to take shifts at a site? We generally agreed that
occupying a site was a good idea, but the number of shifts taken at
the sites is expected to remain the about the same.
b. Plans B: Popups at different locations? Reducing to just a few
tables and chairs? Going to Skinner Butte? To Free Speech Plaza?
c. We will try to clean the site and reimburse Terry if absolutely necessary.
