Occupy Minneapolis Proposes Hosting Occupy The Midwest Regional Conference

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 for Occupy Minneapolis to Host Next Occupy the Midwest Regional Conference in August 2012

After the success of the Occupy the Midwest Regional Conference held March 15 – 18 in St. Louis Missouri, additional conferences are being planned by those interested. This is a proposal to add Minneapolis into nomination for the next city to hold the August 2012 (exact date to be determined) Occupy the Midwest Regional Conference in Minneapolis, hosted by Occupy Minneapolis.

Why:

Minneapolis is a centrally-located city in the Midwest that includes several appropriate targets for marches and peaceful direct actions (The Federal Reserve, US Bank and TCF Bank headquarters, among others), we have a walkable and convenient downtown location, and a reasonably sympathetic local population. Additionally, Minneapolis includes several large public parks and meeting areas to host events and teach-ins. A workgroup will be formed to organize this conference.
