The #UnitedGA workgroup met on 3/12/12 to finalize what we'd like to see from #UnitedGA on 3/17. This is to be presented to General Assembly tonight, 3/13/12. Here's what we've come up with, from the ideas submitted during our breakout sessions, along with consideration of groups which have already submitted their topics. One such topic is from Occupy Austin being Monsanto and #OccupyFood. The group believes that in order to keep discussions consise and on topic, we could best use our time by discussing topics that coincide.
Our topic: Sustainable living.
Our topic in the form of a question to acquire national sentiment: "Is sustainable living a viable solution to the various socioeconomic problems and food crises we face?"
-Occupy SD will then suggest 10 minute discussions with reportbacks from each participating GA on their sustainability projects, so that we can gather knowledge and intelligence and ideas from each assembly. Occupy SD would be willing to give a quick 3-5 minute presentation of what we've been doing and what we've got planned for sustainability and the wellness of our communities. (We can allow for procedural consensus to do so, if participating GA's were more comfortable with that).
-Occupy SD will also suggest that we take 10 to 15 minutes for brainstorming more ideas for national actions against Monsanto. (procedural consensus can be requested for this as well.)
-OccupySD would consent to 90% modified consensus for procedural/structure purposes only, NOT regarding sentiment.
-4PM PST starting time is fine for OccupySD.
