Occupy Boston Daily Digest for 3-28-12

Good Morning from Occupy Boston!

#AmericanSpring is here, and the Daily Digest is back!

Stories of the Day: Occupy DC couple gets (unofficially) married at GA (love the twinkle fingers in the photo!) City of Boston pays $170,000 to settle landmark case involving man arrested for filming police brutality with cell phone. Meet Professor Occupy: with somewhere between 80 and 100 arrests under her belt (she’s lost count) over nearly four decades of rabble-rousing, Lisa Fithian may be the nation’s best-known protest consultant.

Other Occupies: Occupy Arlington is just getting started! They will have their third GA Saturday, March 31, from 3 pm-5 pm, at the Arlington Senior Center, 27 Maple Street, Arlington (behind Town Hall), and perhaps Shadow the cat will join us again as an added bonus!

Volunteer Opportunities/Announcements:

Did you know? InReach/Info/InterOccupy Working Groups have merged under the name Info WG. We meet on Wednesday nights (see below) and all are welcome to join.

The Info WG is hosting an Open House this coming Monday, 6 pm-8:30 pm (doors open 5:30) at St. Paul’s Cathedral, 138 Tremont St., Boston. All WGs are welcome to attend, the idea is to make it like a job fair so that people can learn about what the working groups do. Please bring fliers/literature relevant to your group if you have it, and please make a sign with your group’s name on it. Please tell us in advance if your group plans to attend, you can contact me at AnnaC@occupyboston.org.

Wed, March 28, 9pm – 11pm City Place Food Court (In the Transportation Building on Charles Street)
After a long period of stagnation DA is back and trying to remodel our previous structure and revisit issues such as anti-oppression in order to rebuild relationships, remain inclusive, and work effectively. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss a new and inclusive model of organizing not only for actions but for DA as a working group. Some of the topics we’ll be visiting: What is the role of DA at Occupy Boston? Challenging oppression How can we organize without endangering others? Creating a decentralized model(spokes, affinities, etc)
