In an attempt to allow organizational outreach flourish and to give occupiers an opportunity to connect, a proposal is being presented at the Occupy Minneapolis GA to form a working group to create a weekend event so that a statewide general assembly can take place. This general assembly will will allow for Minnesotans to come together in unity to provide a sense of direction for the movement through a consensus-based process.
This general assembly will, however, in no way effect each individual occupation nor will it necessarily speak for the views of any occupied city in Minnesota.
The proposal is as follows:
After a successful regional conference in St. Louis, MO., Occupy Minneapolis is joining other cities by proposing that Minneapolis hosts the next conference. This proposal is being brought to tonight’s General Assembly for consideration:
Proposal: To form the Union Square General Assembly affinity group.
Mission: To facilitate the continued occupation of Union Square NYC.
Meetings: Mondays 10AM
