MLK March Recap
Great turnout but very heavy police presence. (un)Occupy members gathered to listen to MLK’s “Why I Oppose the War in Vietnam” (Beyond Vietnam) speech before the march and would like to make this into some type of event next year, a week or few days before MLK day. We also mic-checked radical statements by him during the march.

Center for the Study of White American Culture
On their website this group had listed our FAQs under the title of “Resources produced by
white allies in local occupations.” This is obviously incorrect so Tina
contacted them and requested it be changed; anyone interested in drafting a
response to this organization should meet at 12 at the P&J next week to
discuss. We will also circulate the draft for input.
Ruben, Amalia, Maria, and Danya will meet with representatives from Los
Jardines Institute to discuss future collaborations 1/26.
