GA Notes 5 21 12

Occupy Spartanburg General Assembly 5 21 12

– need help with the website – any more volunteers? BJ agreed to pitch in in a couple of weeks
– discussion of where to post GA notes – agreed to post them in usual email form, on facebook pages, and on…unless agreed upon at the GA that parts of meetings are considered to be of a sensitive or personal nature (ie accusation of sexual harrassment – which has not happened, it’s just an example).
– it was agreed that the admin. of one fb page should also be an admin. of the other…”so we’re all on the same page” – ha, sorry, couldn’t help it.
– a man named Anthony found us via online and presented us with lots of documents about alternate engergy. We invited him to the Morgan Square demonstration on June 4 (5 to 8 – please come show your support and solitarity with Occupy! – yeah, couldn’t help that either.)
– Discussion about gun violence – Judy pointed out that our permit from the City of Spartanburg states that no weapons are allowed during our protests. She will send the permit wording along and it will be forwared and posted for all.
– Discussion about perhaps having a safety-specific meeting in the future.
– discussion about the importance of keeping our facebook pages and website content on-topic to Occupy and not personal.
– idea for next protest being about Duke Engergy and nuclear power. Mike mentioned that he’s been certified to educate people (?) on the matter of transporting nuclear waste (?- sorry, my notes are not super clear there!)
– Joel recommended a book called The Art of War by Sun Tzu. He and others say it’s a business model strategy worth reading.
– The next GA is set for 6:15 while we are on Morgan Square Monday, June 4th. Please come and shape Occupy Spartanburg into something we can all be proud of!

Feel free to respond with comments or suggestions! See you on Morgan Square!
