Tonight’s #NYCSC didn’t make quorum due to massive energy at the #M1 (#MayDay) meeting, so we’re just having discussion tonight. #OWS

Heavy convo at #NYCSC — talking about how the movement’s changed. “Winter hit, & it hit really hard. People went indoors, got discouraged.”

“And now it’s Spring,” folks are getting excited, and things are coming back to life. [300 people at #M1 meeting tonight. That's huge. -Ed.]

Some folx laughing off winter. “This wasn’t a cold winter.” A response: “When you’re sleeping outside, & you’re hungry, it’s a cold winter.”

.@OccupySteve notes that we’ve let the mainstream media tell our story for us too much. “It’s important we tell our story again.” #OWS

.@sabokitty: “There’s a quote — the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” There’s hundreds at MayDay, we had over 1k over…

Cont’d: ..course of the day at Occupy Town Square, Tompkins Square Park. And he tells about the action at Chase, which was amazing. #NYCSC

Cont’d: “People are planning all kinds of creative, positive actions striking at the heart of capitalism.” #NYCSC #OWS

Cont’d: “I see a lot of energy, I think it’s diffuse.” “Just like in the park, we didn’t all know each other.” Still true, exciting. #NYCSC

Cont’d: “There’s a lot of good energy, lots of minds being creative, lots of hands working. I don’t want to exaggerate our importance ever..

Cont’d: “..but I feel some things are very beautiful” in the movement right now. #NYCSC #OWS

Ravi says, “Maybe we just shouldn’t take any money, when people want to give us money. Maybe there’s other places they could put it.” #NYCSC

Cont’d: “People want to give us money, even if we don’t believe in it, so we need to be mature and have discussions about what we do…”

Cont’d: “…with it next time.” There’ll be discussion of #MRG on Monday, it sounds like. #NYCSC #OWS
