F29 Action

Occupy Portland is calling or a nationwide action to shutdown th corporations, targeting the members of [ALEC]( “The American Legislative Executive Council”).

Proposal: Target PNM & ask them to cut their ties with ALEC. PNM is a co-owner of the coal-fired Four Corners power plant with ALEC members.
Suggestion: Combine state GA with F29 action?
* Bill will contact Wild Earth Guardians, Black Mesa, about collaboration. Agreement that more research/coordination is needed; reconvene & discuss on Thursday.


Numerous site ideas floated:

  • West Mesa / Pajarito Mesa
  • UNM
  • Roosevelt Park
  • Montaño & Coors: Proposed site of Wal-Mart development.
  • Accepting a community group’s invite to stay for 2 weeks.
  • Tangentially: Occupy Rio Rancho

Camp Agreements

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.
