Subject:   SPAM-MED: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Occupy New Orleans GA decision needs media blast.

Hello Media.

My name is Jo-Robin. I'm a participating member of Occupy New Orleans

who is presently in NYC working with Arts and Culture. Part of my trip

here was to help New Orleans facilitate some assistance from the Media

group in reference to a particular gentlemen who has "hijacked" the

Occupy New Orleans name via website, twitter, facebook and wepay. The

ONO GA came to consensus on a proposal that publicly decries "Joe

Cripple" and his autonomous actions in the name of Occupy New Orleans.

This may sound extreme, but I will give you a thorough explanation.

After about 4 weeks of the occupation of Duncan Plaza there were some

very difficult GAs which resulted in division amoung the group. This,

though disapointing is inevitable in this organic process that is the

GA. At this time a man named Joe Cripple who acted as admin on the

facebook and websites started deleting other members of the

occupation, as well as taking away admin privilages and deleting posts

that questioned his behavior. He stpped attending the GAs and for

awhile was allowing one or two members of the occupation to continues

posting our meeting times and events, until they too were eventually


Recently, Mr Cripple has formed a PAC (Political Action Committee) against the

wishes of the GA. He has created a wepay account

and is collecting donations in the name of Occupy New Orleans. For a

mere 500$ donation YOU could become an "executive committee" member!

This is clearly the actions of a power hungry, and or criminal mind.

PLEASE! Help New Orleans regain it's media presence by publicly

denouncing this man and his websites!

I am currently in NYC and am happy to explain this to anyone in person

who would like more information.

The "Joe Cripple" media sites to AVOID are:
