G.A. Meeting 6/13/12
By Nikita Najawati in OCCUPY WILMINGTON NC DISCUSSION GROUP
Peter met with UNCW they do have rooms avail.
However It has been decided that OWNC will not be hosting the statewide GA.
Charlotte/ Ashville Occupy’s main concern was having a 7 1/2 – 8 hr drive.
It would require a 2 night stay.
Keenen went to Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston Salem for Occupy
June 21st in Charlotte there will be a media coverage and press release in response to May 9th BOA protest in Charlotte. Apparently BOA is greenwashing the event proclaiming to still be the #1 financier in the country.
Steve Barker, Tony Indage (forgive the misspelling) would be a good person to talk to about the Beach Erosion.
Wave Transit hearing is actually a budget proposal scheduled at the regular City Council meeting on June 19th NOT on the 26th. It is scheduled for 6:30pm at city hall as normally scheduled. Our proposal is to do a Protest from 5:30pm to 7:30 pm. DVS is on board, but they have to watch their support due to federal funding.
Waiting for a call back from Interfaith.
