My post to the email list. If anyone has comments about either topic, including agenda items for the Logistics Working Group meeting or questions about it, please post here.
1) Logistics Working Group interest meeting: Thurs. Oct. 27 after the GA (around 7:30 p.m.)
2) There’s a need for more daytime Occupiers (between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.)
1) Logistics Working Group: I would like to invite anyone who might be interested to attend a Logistics Working Group meeting this Thursday (Oct. 27) after the General Assembly (so around 7:30). I know Outreach is also meeting then, but we should have space for two groups to meet
I spoke to Stephanie today and she demonstrated that there does appear to be a need for logistics. Let’s discuss what we can do to support the Occupation logistically (electricity, supplies, communication, etc)
2) I was reminded today that there’s a HUGE need for daytime Occupiers (anytime 8 a.m.-5 p.m.)! At least one person at the first General Assembly on Oct. 15 mentioned that there are some retirees who have the time and can come to the Plaza to relieve the Occupiers who sleep over. Now is the time to step up! Come today! The more the better. It’s important to have both a nighttime AND a daytime presence at the Peace and Justice Plaza.
John plans to be there during the day to welcome any newcomers (as he’s been doing).
So if you’ve been thinking of coming down for a few hours, but haven’t, here’s your personal invitation.
The core of full-time occupiers might want/need to be able to go home sometimes, or at least take a break from the Plaza.
We are also looking for a few (maybe 3) daytime point people. These should be people who can definitely commit to coming for certain hours or days of the week, and also can coordinate and help schedule other daytime people to make sure Occupy Chapel Hill always has a presence at the Plaza.
Stephanie is working on setting up an online sign-up/calendar tool so that people can sign up and commit to Occupy at certain times. Which might streamline things, but in the meantime, we need more people in the day. And of course, many more people are always welcome in the night!
