right now we are looking for someone to spearhead a teach in for this
- see below - maybe you can organize a teach in for them later in the
week and have it be the first live stream
we are filming the march on sunday maybe the edit of what we film can
be shown just as a stream beforehand i guess it would matter what else
was going on at the time but just sayin'

maybe just strt live streaming the teach ins now without the 3 cam and
space - have them at 60 wall for now then push it up

also do you know about the national conference calls that are
happening they cld be some sort of source for you to link up with to
get the word out

let me know if i can be of help

Hey Everyone  -

I haven't been able to make meetings recently.  Sincere apologies.
Didn't mean to fall off the map in such a dramatic fashion.
Definitely feeling the ache of not being on the ground as much any
more, but following the videos and email threads - you all are doing
an amazing job.

I'm on a job for the next 4 weeks and will be devoting the majority
of my free time to movement building strategies - would love to
discuss those strategies with the media team in person, but in the
meantime, outlined some thoughts below.

I'll be at the 11a tomorrow morning discuss further.

Sorry in advance for the long email, but please take a minute to
look over when you have a chance.  Sending some pertinent
information from other working groups etc in an email to follow.


Some thoughts on movement building strategies:

I've been thinking recently about our theoretical foundation, or the
lack there of.

We are NOT a movement - yet...   But there is great potential to be.

I think the next phase requires a marriage of theory and practice.
We need to beef up our level of political and philosophical
discourse across the board, in all the occupied cities, nationally
and internationally.

We need to begin to BUILD this movement.

I think our intellectual space matters just as much, if not more
than our physical space at this point. We need action to
continuously remind people that we are here, but it must be
underpinned with something tangible. Something real.

Many of us are asking ourselves - how do we further tap into and
mobilize the traditional base - students/labor - in a meaningful/
radical way?

I think one way is to work on liberating minds.

In that vein, I want to work with live stream and education/
empowerment to begin a weekly series of teach ins - everything from
the history of action based DA to power politics.  Education and
empowerment have been doing teach ins since the beginning, I would
like us to step it up a notch and work with Live Stream to build
this as a weekly, produced "show."

I'm already working to find the weekly space (possibly CUNY, the
Brecht Forum or the Arclight - but hoping to find a space closer to
Liberty that has the capacity to hold 2 to 300 people with a solid
internet connection).

I did this back in April and May prior to the Uncut actions
streaming from Judson Memorial to a network of 80 universities
across the country. It was a complete technical failure, but we
didn't have a badass live stream team working on it.  ;)?

The idea would be to make this like a "school of revolt." ?Begin
streaming weekly to campuses, then branch out to workplaces etc.

Imagine a bunch of cooks or nurses huddled around a computer screen
in the break room listening to a discussion about power imbalance -
and then they "liberate" the hospital.?

This is a crucial moment - technology is what makes us different
than any movement that has come before. Why not use it to educate
and inspire critical thought.  Liberate more than space - liberate
minds.  Enlist left intellectuals to start educating and
radicalizing students, workers etc.??

Education is a necessary part of the next phase of mobilization and
we have the tools to make it accessible.?

So let's start discussing how -

I could work to get this off the ground, organize and produce this
but I can't do it alone.

Think it would be ideal to have 2 to 3 cameras and technically treat
it like a live show.?

So what does that entail?
?
If we decided to move forward, how quickly could we be up and running?

??Do you have access to any translation software so we can broadcast
in spanish, french etc.?  Does that kind of thing exist or would it
all have to be subtitled?  ?

Thoughts???

Furthermore - wanted to challenge all of us to start thinking about
what the idea of space means. Where do we go from here?  Physically
and theoretically.

I'm sure most of you already are, but we need to actively start
discussing this - we are reaching a critical turning point. The
weather is saying snow tomorrow. What happens over the next couple
weeks will define how this budding movement continues to grow.

I don't think organization preempts radical action.

Also want to continue discussing the narrative. How do we become pro-
active in a meaningful way?  How do we reach Americans at large, in
plain language that they can understand?  How do we use the tools at
our disposal to take the narrative back from the mainstream?

Anyway - if you've read this far.
Thanks.
Hoping to see you all tomorrow.
In solidarity.
Katie
