Reno Downtown Library, Sunday, 30 October, 2-5 PM
Those interested in our movement who wish to discuss issues – local, national or global – are invited to come to the Reno Downtown Library auditorium on Sunday, 30 October, from 2pm – 5pm. They can be issues that seriously need change or issues to better the quality of life. We will initially agree on meeting procedures, then dive in, improving the process as we go. We will maintain a list of issues, status, proposals, etc., and email it to attendees afterward. We will also post the log from each meeting.
The room has a projector so speakers are welcome to bring a flash stick with charts or other information. It also has open wi-fi. We’ll probably agree to limit speakers to 3 minutes to insure an active discussion because this is only a beginning. As our movement progresses, there will be sessions for in depth discussion and education on particular issues. Where there is due consideration over time and broad agreement, we might reach solutions and proposals that could be presented to the general assembly for a vote.
There is no formally stated goal of the Occupy movement, however, it is safe to say a major thrust of it is to make the laws, regulations and policies of the land serve the broad population, as oppose to favoring the wealthy (people and entities). That leads to a happier, healthier, more educated population, which, in turn, builds stronger communities and nations.
We CAN fix our nation. Hope to see you Sunday!
