We thought now would be a great time to give everyone a little update on the occupation. We apologize if information has not gotten out as effectively the past few days, but many of us have been busy building the infrastructure at the site and have not had internet access. We now have a more or less set schedule and expect to keep this consistent for a month or more.
The events will be happening at the same time every week and are as follows:
Monday: Media committee meeting at 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday: Outreach committee meeting at 5:30, Taco Tuesday potluck at 6:00, and Tech committee meeting at 6:30
Wednesday: Infrastructure committee meeting at 4 p.m. and GENERAL ASSEMBLY at 6 p.m.
Thursday: Weekly March from City Plaza to financial district in downtown Reno at noon.
Friday: Movie night at 6 p.m. at Moana Pool (starting 11/11)
Saturday: GENERAL ASSEMBLY at noon followed by community activities, teach-ins, etc.
Sunday: Legal committee meeting 1-2 p.m., Issues Forum at downtown library auditorium from 2-5 p.m.
*All events at 240 Moana Lane unless otherwise noted
Please feel free to show up any time day or night to stop by and visit, donate supplies, camp, or offer ideas. The best way to get involved at this point is to actually occupy. Even if you can only come for half an hour, please do. Newly named “Moana Springs” (formerly Moana Pool) is a growing community, and we need you to help get the infrastructure built so that we can focus on the next step.
We currently have a camping area with about 15 tents including one community tent, 12 portapotties, a 32 ft. diameter geodesic dome for information and media, a people’s library with hundreds of books, ample parking, grass space for activities, a food-prep area to bring your own food and cook at, and a fire pit circle to keep us warm at night.
Right now we especially are in need of firewood, fire pits, non-perishable food, warm clothes, blankets, tarps, and your company!
We encourage you to commit to just one day a week of overnight occupation in the next week if you can! You don’t have to be a 24/7 occupier to help, and even just one day will help you really get a feel for the movement and help the movement decide the direction of action from here.
We look forward to having your voice in our nightly chats around the fire as well as at any of our events and/or meetings!
