2011/12/11 General Assembly notes

We attempted to host a solidarity event with Occupy Providence, where we would have facilitation training, hold General Assembly (GA), and then attend theirs. Due to the small turn-out, we decided instead to have lunch, and then attend the Occupy Providence GA.

We met a gentleman named Edmund who holds religious service at Occupy Providence, who intends to get us in touch with a Christian youth group in Fall River in hopes of encouraging their involvement.

Mike from Occupy Providence Media offered solidarity, and that we can work together on events.

At lunch, we discussed potential ways to get the community to really lay claim to Occupy Fall River and get involved. We discussed the possibility of community groups that are not necessarily protest-based, such as groups that center on art, songwriting, education, etc..
