Ed took a poll online asking “What political event are you most interested in 2012?” 38% responded “The less politics, the better.”

Dan’s play, Galileo of Gainesville, opens this week at the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre. Thursday is a dress rehearsal that is open to the public as a sliding scale benefit. Doors open at 7:30, and the show begins at 8:00. The show runs from 13 Jan – 29 Jan. Curtain is at 8:00 on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2:00 on Sundays. Doors open half an hour before each performance.

Ed set up an OG online radio station. Now we just need people to staff it.

On Thursday, the 12th, there will be a demonstration in Levy County against the new Crystal River nuclear plant.

Monday night, a local author will speak at the Alachua Public Library on water politics.

Thursday, there will be a workshop on participatory improvisational theatre at the Hippodrome. The information is posted in the forums under General Discussion.

Working and affinity group reports and proposals

Move To Amend, via Michelle
Canvassed today for Occupy the Courts action.
If you have any ideas for the programs, possible speakers, or to get involved, please contact Michelle Parker.
The next general meeting will be Wednesday from 5:30 – 6:45 at the CMC. There will be an event planning meeting Saturday at 2:00 PM at the CMC.
A few of us built our corporate person puppet today at Spike & Erin’s.

Internet, via Karrie
There was a server hiccup the other night, but the site is back up and running.
The Occupy the Courts event page is up—send it to everyone you know.
If you can’t see the working and affinity group forums on the site, email the internet team with your name, handle, and group, and they will verify you as a user.
The SERCO site is up at . A Facebook page is coming soon.
Goldman Sachs bought into Facebook this week. Luckily, OWS is working on a new social network for activists, and plan to have it up by the end of January.

Media, via Chris
Chris and Ed are back full-force, and plan to have a meeting ASAP.
Proposal (passes): our radio station will be called Occupy Gainesville Radio
The team will need all the support we can muster for Occupy the Courts (photographers, videographers, etc.) to staff our media tent (separate from the press tent)

SERCO, via Walton
Proposal (passes): The text of our invitation email was read, and the group consented to the content and use of the OG name. The full text is available in the forums, under SERCO Local.

Open discussion

Andrew is leaving us for the UK. His time in Gainesville has been devastating, particularly this year. Then along came Occupy; it’s been a wonderful experience, and he’s proud to have been part of this group. He encourages us to balance our emphasis on process with attention to action, and bring in new members who have much to contribute. He will still participate online, and will join Occupy London as soon as he arrives in England. He thanks us for letting him join us and speak, and dedicates his red chair to OG, particularly to Coral.

Much discussion here, and in group reports, was dedicated to the SERCO group and its place in OG. The general trend seemed to be that the SERCO group should be a working group with greater visibility and accountability.

John Fullerton has a friend who would like to deliver a presentation on money, the fed, the economy, etc.

Patrick is going to set up a garden and a kitchen at tent city.

General proposals

None tonight

Open floor

Chris thanks everyone for being here tonight. She thanks everyone making it possible for her and Ed to spend a week with her boys. In particular, she thanks Karrie for organizing the fund and making it happen.

Michelle thinks open floor is really cool. And open. Dinner was great. And she likes ice cream. Also, the donation jar needs some love. Please give if you can.

Karrie thought it was awesome to have the mobile outreach group occupying her yard today and riding around in the OG van to engage the community. It was great getting out and meeting people, and she appreciates everyone who participated.

Ed: it’s a beautiful moon tonight, and Occupiers all over the world are looking at it with us.

OG news

Mobile outreach went to a couple churches today, canvassed, invited people to the 20 Jan action, and got a good response.

Other Occupy news

Nigeria has its first Occupation. 100 people gathered in advance of an international meeting of oil companies.

A high school basketball player made a ½ court shot at ½ time at a college game for $10,000 prize. He made the shot, but the next day there was a discrepancy about whether or not his foot was over the line. The high schoolers occupied, and Kroger ponied up the prize.

Occupy Tampa has a park, with tents and firepits.

Announcements and appreciation

Nancy appreciates Karrie for hosting today’s mobile outreach.

Michelle appreciates Karrie for being awesome, and letting her climb her tree. She also appreciates the hard work everyone is putting in. She also wants to have a party in the near future.

Chris appreciates Ed for everything that he’s done for the movement.

The cleanliness of the park has declined. It was suggested that everyone acts as a liaison with the park residents; talk to them, encourage their help and participation.

grumpy pelicanOctober 28, 2011 @ 11:36 pmI’ve always thought that it’s groups and movements like this that are the most likely to be taken over by a leader if someone doesn’t already call the shots. In my opinion, they are fairly directionless with no clear aims, a lot of emotions but no agreed upon, logical goals and a fair number of folks who can’t or won’t speak for themselves. A strong and charismatic leader can do a lot with an army like that.

I am really trying to find

I am really trying to find some sort of a push that would change the way things are done at Nagatacho and across Japan. Doing the same thing over again (as you well know, britanara) is utterly useless. If the earthquake wasn't enough of a push, then what exactly would spark reform on a national level?Though that certainly is true, there still has to be some common ground between the long term self interests of all individuals in order to bring effective, positive change to Japan. I doubt that Ozawa's long term self interest of maintaining political clout falls in line with the long term interests of a regular salaryman simply trying to make ends meet.Cheers,Peter
