Hey all,
 
many thanks for the hearts and thoughts being put towards this issue.  In response to ongoing and important questions about the recent NYCGA consensus to respond to a request from Egypt for participants from OWS to observe parliamentary elections, the Movement Building Working Group (MBWG) invites all occupiers and fellow-workers of all occupations and GA's to AN ALL-OCCUPATION COUNCIL ON EGYPTIAN SOLIDARITY.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16
6PM
THE ATRIUM AT 60 WALL STREET

The council, which will be non-binding and fully participatory, will allow a complete airing of views and facts on the important and fundamental questions confronting our movement arising from the requests coming from some Egyptian civil society groups and the responses from other voices in Egypt.  By that time, we hope to have direct contact with known spokes of the April 6th Youth Movement and other movements on the ground in Egypt. 

Based on what we discuss and come to at Wednesday's meeting, MBWG will hold a special session, also open to all who want to attend, to decide if a friendly amendment to the Egyptian delegation consensus should be proposed to the NYCGA.  This meeting shall be:
 
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18
5PM
THE ATRIUM AT 60 WALL STREET

At this meeting, we will generate a proposal to bring to Saturday's GA.
 
Please come prepared with questions and a willingness to engage in an open, respectful conversation with your fellow occupiers who, as always, hold a diverse range of opinions and experiences.
 
Many thanks for your patience and understanding,
the Movement Building Working Group
