With full understanding that this is after-the-fact. I would like to

see if there is some way that Sade Adona, could still be included in

this. If that means speaking to the trip organizers and going through

another channel than media then so be it. Sade was unable to access

relevant information about this vote. She lives at Zuccotti and

doesn't have a phone or consistent internet access. I know this was

addressed in meetings as well as online, and I recognize my plea may

be a lost cause. But I have to make it in principle. Sade has been

here since week 2. She left her apartment to move in with the

occupation full time. She is by far one of the most dedicated and

formidable people I have met in this movement. She has worked with

media, OWS radio, facilitation and direct action and taken a leading

roll in many marches and actions. She is fearless and bright.

Sensitive and resolute.

I'm asking that if someone knows what can be done to bring her skills

to the attention of the trip organizers, they take the autonomous

action of doing so. I know it may be too late and I humbly respect the

process here, and the fact that sometimes it operates imperfectly when

time is an issue. I'm ok with that. But I'm also sensitive to the

concerns of occupiers who have limited access to information. If

anyone can step up to give Sade a chance here, it would be deeply

appreciated. I do believe she is a perfect candidate for the trip.

 

love and rage
