A new person from the alley showed up tonight. A very charming and intelligent woman who didn’t realize that the combination of capitalism and democracy is not mandatory. You can just imagine the discussion that took place. We also started discussing where the tents should be placed. Oh, did I mention that the camp is coming back? Right in the Courtyard? Tents will start going up on Thursday. It will be smaller of course, as the Courtyard is smaller. You should stop by. If you do, you might get the full story.
G.A. Minutes 5-26-12
All our good people are back safe and sound(pretty tired though) from Chicago. They have lots of stories to tell. Apparently, Chicago is the 2nd most militarized city in the world(London is 1st). The Anti NATO rally was reported to have between 8,000 and 15,000 participants. Many incidents of police brutality were witnessed. Beating Occupiers appears to have been very much in fashion across the country over the past 8 months or so. A lot of the mtg consisted of discussion of Chicago politics. There was good hot coffee, gluten free treats and a warm fire on a cool, damp night. Wish you were there.
