Debriefing of Occupy Gracie Mansion Action

What went well / positive points:

The way the wheelchair users blocked East End Avenue.
The collaboration with our nondisabled comrades
Mic checks
Signs
Chants

What could have been better:

Needed more disabled people willing to do CD
Needed more chants and mic checks
Needed more outreach
Too much emphasis placed on taxi inaccessibility. The action was meant to be broader in scope
More media would have been nice

Not all agreed about effectiveness of the strategy of going into the park
Good – because it confused the police
Not so good – some of our own people left

We should find a better way to communicate with each other during an action
