Meeting started informally and went to more formal structure as more people showed up.
“Fed up – show up” march/meetup on central park, Jan 1, noon– ideasforsolutions.com. Goal is to have a meetup every 2nd Sunday. Also to eventually have meetups in Bronx, Queens, SI, etc. Soapbox format. Asking for help; wants comrades. Will stay after for people to talk.
Reoccupy in spring, how do we want to do it? Many comments philosophically in favor (or not) of doing it; was not the point of the presenter, who wants more practical discussion. Sample ideas raised: What is a feasible site? Use national parks? Governors Island? Many parks at the same time? Discuss in closed circle? March too soon to get buy-in (or not). List was passed around for people to form group for further discussion, and group will meet immediately following DA.
