Proposal for Exporting the Surplus
People from across the world know the power of giving. Occupy Wall Street has become an outlet for the inspiring generosity of the 99 percent. After the outpouring of support from the recent snow our shelves are overflowing. While a surplus is a great comfort it is also a great responsibility. The more we horde supplies in the face of need, need from the community and need from other occupations, the more we will begin to resemble the American status quo.
So, let’s change that. After all, change is what we’re here for. Let’s start moving supplies to where it is needed. S.I.S. is making the following proposal:
In solidarity with over 15 million unemployed workers, we will allocate at least 15% of the supply surplus to the outreach working group to be donated within our community. The rest of the surplus will be made available to our fellow Occupations across the country. We will use the supplies as incentive to promote improved communication between others in our movement. The release of the surplus comes with the hope, that the internet working group in cooperation with any related groups establish a section of our website for inter-occupy communication. There are efforts underway, let’s unify them. To begin to negotiate the allocation of the surplus. We are asking for an initial export budget of $5000. This will be used for shipping and travel between occupations.
After this initial export, we will continue to use the newly developed contacts to send supplies when we can. We have been given a great deal of wealth. Let’s show Wall Street how we handle OUR stock.
