i admit I am not privy to all the accounts.    And I am not defending
or condoning.    I agree that this has to be addressed, and resolved.
 And that if he wants to operate as another encampment member, and
create his own art/media/coverage, as long as he is not claiming to be
"official" OWS/GA sanctioned working group, then to each his own.
and he could still be a good ally and affinity team to work with.

a bit sit down is needed.

Thorin has been guilty of a few things over the last month and a half.....
the latest violence against a memeber of the media team is just the latest
of a very long series of highly questionable actions.

However, we cant tolerate violence in our group.  so i think the situation
is sort of closed.  we need to come up with a process to resolve this issue,
but i recomend outing this behaviur on public channels once and for all.

i have a good relationship with thorin and his team.    i will be
speaking with him before the media meeting today.   and will advise
him to attend and to bring any of his partners/team members.   He
respects me and i want to give him an opportunity to declare his
intentions to everyone and to have it be clearly understood.

Personally I am not a fan of what I saw on that video.   That is NOT
the kind of sentiment I support.  I don't care who it was he was
speaking to and for what reason... making a threat of violence against
another human is detrimental to what we are trying to achieve here
with this movement.   I see value in his collective, and hope to see
it evolve towards unity with the movement in a way that harmonizes our
coverage of this historic rEvolution.

i think yes absolutely. these 2 dudes sound like loose cannons who have
the
potential to cause long term damage. my 2 cents is that nobody should
treated disrespectfully, manhandled, threatened or sworn at. and if you
can't respect those basic rules then pa' fuera. to not take action is to
condone the behavior.

Ananda, Thorin does not speak for the livestream team - he operates
independantly of the GA and the principles of OWS.

He has been a huge problem for us and the entire media team. You
absolutely should call a meeting about this - it may be a way to
approach
the process of getting him out of the park.

If Thorin is making physical threats to people, I think it is time to
draw
the line.

What does eveyone think? Does this warrant a new approach?

Ananda,
This is terrible. You have my support and love (from the West Coast).
I
would like to offer you a "Restorative Justice" session, however, it's
been
difficult for me to set up the group...maybe it will happen one day.
In the
meantime, some of the men in this movement should know that it still
appears
predominantly male-oriented. Women are still fighting for their
rights, just
like the poor and underprivileged.
