G.A. Minutes 8-4-12
People are a little upset tonight. The owner of our camp property has very recently hired a new property manager. This new manager was at our camp in the late morning and informed the Occupiers that she was throwing us out. We have one week to remove all our things. An Occupier also received a phone call from the manager stating the same thing. This does not make a lot of sense as we have been doing good things for the community and the property owner is a very ethical person who is deeply empathetic toward our community’s most vulnerable people. People who do not know the owner are very angry saying, “All rich people are like this!” People who know the owner say, “ Wait a minute, for one thing the guy’s not really rich and he has shown his integrity in this community for very many years. Something is not right here and we need to give him the benefit of the doubt. Let’s contact him and see what’s really going on.”
We attempt to have a discussion about what we will do should this threat be real but we are all pretty much in shock and not thinking too well. Then, on top of it all, it starts to rain. We feel that we won’t be able to accomplish anything more tonight, so campers head for their tents and others head for their homes. To be continued……….
