from a facilitator of the GA in Oakland
“Today i was facilitating the general assembly at occupy oakland. minutes before the assembly the city gave us an extensive letter nit-picking a million demands they have of us ‘for our safety blah blah.’ it was way too last minute for us to incorporate it in the already long meeting so my co-facilitator and i decided we would just read it aloud and proposals should come the next day about how to respond. i read the whole thing while the assembly burst out in laughter and booed many of the demands. as i finished reading it all these people were yelling ‘burn it!! BURN IT!!’ before i knew it a dozen people rushed the stage, burned the letter from the city (in front of city hall mind you), and the whole general assembly broke out into the most beautiful of chaos with everyone cheering and jumping around. oakland, you are LEGIT.”
