First Occupy NOLA GA 2013
We at Occupy NOLA hope you had a restful holiday season.
Tonight marks the first General Assembly of 2013. It will be held at 2735c Toulouse Street at Occupy The Stage at 7pm.
Below is a tentative agenda. Please come ready to add to the list!
Tentative Agenda (again please add to this):
- Report Backs from Working Groups
The following current topics will be included:
- Discussion of “Idle No More Gulf Coast” a group forming in solidarity with Idle No More. Idle No More is an ongoing protest movement originating among the Aboriginal peoples in Canada comprising the First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples and their non-Aboriginal supporters in Canada, and to a lesser extent, internationally. It has consisted of a number of political actions worldwide, inspired in part by the liquid diet (including soup) of Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence and further coordinated via social media. A reaction to alleged abuses of indigenous treaty rights by the current federal government, the movement takes particular issue with the recent omnibus bill Bill C-45.
