Numerous site ideas floated:
- West Mesa / Pajarito Mesa
- Roosevelt Park
- Montaño & Coors: Proposed site of Wal-Mart development.
- Accepting a community group’s invite to stay for 2 weeks.

Some parts not as relevant without a camp. Ex: “We look after our personal belongings.”
What counts as on-site? “The public arena.”
“Camp agreements are a useful base for those new to the movement.”
“They’re not optimal, newcomers won’t know what 100% consensus or anti-oppression politics are.”
Suggested: More clearly defined policies for actions, camp, other events. GA agreed that the subject warrants more discussion at a larger Sunday GA.
