BREAKOUT GROUPS:

Squidding – brainstorm about a viral way of going about it. letsgosquidding.org

New Years Eve- want an action, not a party… maybe something in Zucchotti, OR Times Square.

AGENDA:

-Legal/Jail Support: – people may be arraigned tonite, if not people are going to central booking tomorrow (Wed) – people are at central booking. Number: (774-257-4657) (Update by end of mtg: peeps were going to be arraigned around 8pm, DA folks were heading over.)

-Police- how can subvert the police by befriending them? – people see the structure. oppressor is held up by pillars, one of which is the police. we probably cant use force, we need to infiltrate the police department… Identify a charity the police are at, befriend the police- then use that information (about precincts and names) to pretend to be a police officer,
Jerry has an action, – yesterday a cop was killed, a subversive action -
-  should we genuinely care about the cops OR not??

-Wall Mart: 100 years ago Kraft sold cheese at a marketplace, and Wall Mart owns marketplace, cant sell cheese – PLAN: trying to go into Wallmart to sell bread

- OR give it away. freestore? targeted information around that works.

-Sunday 18th 230-7- overall OWS Movement Conversation, Dec 18th @ Pace University, a visioning meeting  – NO DA SPOKES COUNCIL

-  organized by Movement Building, an attempt to bring everyone together

-  different ways of getting this information out (text loop, email, ..)

-  how do DA announcements go out? rotating moderator who handles announcements

-  concern: sunday’s meetings are used to set times for future meetings..is there a way we can do that without having DA spokes council. –yes, there is – at the pace meeting.

-  friendly amendment: before the pace meeting, have time to hear announcements.

-  test for consensus, yes.. consensus achieved!

New Year’s Eve action?

-  pre-party, new years resolution thing around 9pm

-  converge around times square, party

-  how do we want to approach this? – got everyone

-  it should be a party, it should feel like a party

-  OWS might wanna colab W/ Times Up

Arrested- people arrested AT the Stock Exchanges  at lunch, grabbed people and thier equipment, and live – maybe we can have lunch with Wall St.

West Coast s with East Coast action

-  we can also focus on Goldman Sachs

-  we need outreach to take up responsibility.-
