Stack: So be aware of the veterans coming your way. We stand with you! #ows #nycga

Stack: When i first came down to occupy, i didnt go to meetings bc i didnt understand. I used to stand right over there .. #ows #nycga

Stack: There’s still an encampment in Newark. You should really check us out. Get people there! #ows #nycga

Stack: We’re working on ways to reoccupy Zuccotti but more in a culturally relevant manner. Think shows & art. #ows #nycga

Stack: My names Jeff. I’m an American & we appreciate all our international occupations. #ows #nycga

Stack: We had a president in 2001 that started & continued all these wars. I felt i had no voice for my political views. #ows #nycga

Stack: But then I started campaigning for years. And still, i felt like i had no voice. #ows #nycga

Stack: Then i read in the paper about a bunch of people sleeping in a park that hadnt left in weeks. I was skeptical. #ows #nycga

Stack: But i came down. And you know what, im still here and i finally feel like i have a voice. #ows #nycga

Stack: Now that I, you, and all of us have a voice, I want our voice to be heard. And this is happening right now w/ all of u #ows #nycga

Stack: The Bill of Rights is very important and i feel there is lack of support for opposing the NDAA #ows #nycga

Stack: Im from a country where there is no due process. Lets show our strength and oppose the NDAA while… #ows #nycga

Stack:…we still have that right! #ows #nycga

Stack: About the NDAA, if it does get ratified, i know im coming down to zuccotti asap to let them know what i think is right #ows #nycga

Stack: And, if we do get detained and go to Guantanamo, i wouldnt want to be with any other company! #ows #nycga

Stack: There is also another bill called SOPA. Please stand against it. It will cripple the Internet! #ows #nycga

Stack: I want you to look to your right and look to ur left. Now introduce yourselves to someone u dont know! #ows #nycga

(We’re all now introducing ourselves, conversing. Be back in a bit!) Stack: #ows #nycga

Stack: mic check! #ows #nycga

Stack: We do have one proposal. Justin, can u present ur proposal? #ows #nycga

(Prev tweet was Stairs, not stack) #nycga

Justin: Thanks. Before i continue, are there any blocks? Stack: #ows #nycga

(One block) #ows #nycga

Block: Im blocking u bc gifts were supposed to be handed out, which u were in charge of, never happened. #ows #nycga

Justin: That is true. The person never got back to me tho. The money, however, was never spent. We still have the $3K. #ows #nycga

Stairs: Given that, will u rescind ur block? Blocker: Yes, but keep ur word. #ows #nycga

Housing: We would like to continue giving day unlimited metrocards. 140 to be exact. #ows #nycga

Housing: we ask for $3,480 for these cards so WG members can continue making group meetings. #ows #nycga

Housing: I have copies and will hand these out. #ows #nycga

(Stack is now open) #ows #nycga

Stack: Im homeless and belong to 3 WG. Will i have access? #ows #nycga

Housing: Yes, but please see ur WG. A point person should be assigned to deal with distribution. #ows #nycga

Stack: Will these ppl getting cards working as ows members? #ows #nycga

Housing: We believe this proposal will give greater accountability & an opportunity to help those join who cant bc of travel issues #nycga

Housing: Also, these cards are not just for ppl staying in churches. #ows #nycga

Stack: i just read ur proposal and think this is a great proposal. I rescind my question. #ows #nycga

Stack: some ppl take the metrocards who dont need it or use it for personal use. How do we rectify that? #ows #nycga

Housing: Yeah. Thats true. #ows #nycga

Stack: are these weekly unlimited? Housing: Yes. Stack: then personal use doesnt matter. #ows #nycga

Housing: what if they come up here to ows, then go home? Is that unethical? #ows #nycga

Stack: No. I just dont want ppl to use it for partying or anything else completely unrelated. #ows #nycga

Stack: i hear the previous concern, but we’re hear to hold one another accountable. Use ur judgment. #ows #nycga

Stack: will those ppl bring those cards back? #ows #nycga

Housing: You need to sign ur name and return ur old metro card. It helps the accounting ppl. #ows #nycga

Stack for Friendly Amendments open. #ows #nycga

FA: If u pass out the MCs, remind them its for ows business. Housing: come to our meeting. We repeat this everytime. #ows #nycga

(Friendly amendment is accepted and no blocks) The Metrocard proposal passes! #ows #nycga

Stairs: And we’re done. Happy 100th for Occupy! #ows #nycga
