Attendees: Stuart Leonard, Diane Moxley, Ted Actie, Sean Krause, Matt Hopard, Cynthia Price, Natalie Osborne
Discussed Town Square: Reviewed outreach material and planned teach in.
Discussed upcoming spring actions: Will take part and see what we can bring. Will also act as an affinity group.
Matt proposed an action asking people to register as independents. This will problematize the two party system . Will review again next week. How would this work?
Cynthia proposed an “Demand Congress Resign” action. Sounds good, has symbolic value, connect to resignation of leaders during Arab Spring. Will incubate.
Natalie addressed oppression in Guatemala and American backing. We will add this to agenda and talking points. Other actions to be discussed.
Occupy Mass. primary still up in the air.
