This post is to remind everyone of the outreach event and changes to the General Assemblies that will occur this weekend. First off, tomorrow (Nov. 12th) we will be doing educational outreach in front of Chase bank urging members of the community to divest from the big banks and join local credit unions. Please come out and participate! (Extra points for dressing up like a banker while you do it!).
Secondly, at the Nov. 7th General Assembly two important changes were made in regards to future Saturday and Sunday GAs. On Saturday the GA time has been moved to 2 PM at Civic Center Park. This is a change from 6 PM at Civic Center Park. So grab some lunch from the farmer’s market next door and join the discussion! On Sunday, we will be be doing our first run at a completely different type of GA. Instead of normal GA format, there will be an informal, open-forum discussion on whatever Occupy Berkeley members are interested in discussing. This will give us all an opportunity to get to know each other better, build a sense of community, and discuss whatever topics are of interest (whether that be the direction of the movement, general politics, heated debate over just how cute this video is, etc.). This is a great time for members of the community to come and see how they can get involved and to discuss concerns with the occupation as well. We really hope to see all supporters out there on Sunday night, especially those who we haven’t seen in awhile!
