We propose that those couple of people who have been invited to participate in this event ::: http://www.commonwealthclub.org/events/2011-12-15/occupy-what-now-what-next hosted by the commonwealth club take advantage of the opportunity to have our message heard in an hour long panel discussion likely to be aired in full on 250 radio stations, regardless of the fact that Mayor Quan will also be on the panel. We as a general assembly agree to set aside our policy of not engaging with public officials for this one event, for the sake of the improvement of our public image, and for the sake of getting real information about the movement out to the public. We ask that all occupants of oakland refrain from disruptive tactics at this event, and also that as many as possible actually either attend the event, or congregate outside to positively reinforce the message of this movement. tickets are free, but seats could be filled soon, so people should register as soon as they know they can attend.
this was an unheard proposal regarding this event, thanks to people not showing up for general assembly. please, people, can we start showing up for more than our own pet projects?
