The Occupy Minneapolis General Assembly has passed a proposal calling on Minnesotans to rise up and speak for themselves at a statewide general assembly. The date and location of this general assembly are still to be determined. Upon passing this proposal, Occupy Minneapolis has allowed the formation of a working group to organize a weekend gathering where occupiers from all regions of Minnesota can gather and communicate.
The statewide general assembly will be the focus of the event, where occupiers can submit proposals to be passed and speak for the Minnesotan Movement. Any proposals passed at the statewide general assembly are not meant to overshadow any decisions made on a per-city basis, but rather, they are meant to expand the voice of the Minnesotan Movement as a whole and can be taken back to each individual city for consideration.
More information will be available in the future about the developments of the working group, and announcements will be made on OccupyMN.org. Once established, the working group will be open to occupiers from all over the state.
The text of the passed proposal is as follows [including friendly amendments]:
