Proposal to Ban Paul (Fetch) Carnes and Sydney Sherell from Speaking for
Occupy Boston and the General Assembly.

Whereas Carnes and Sherell have previously been banned from the Financial
Accountability Working Group (FAWG) for inappropriate handling of funds and
unsavory behavior, and

Whereas Carnes and Sherell have already been brought before mediation and
were asked to cease and desist actions on behalf of Occupy Boston, and

Whereas Carnes went to Occupy Cleveland, claiming to have been sent from
Occupy Boston, and to be a representative of the National Lawyers' Guild,
and attempted to claim vertical leadership there, much like he did here, and

Whereas Carnes and Sherell passed out a flyer at camp dated November 2, 2011
that was not approved by the GA, the Media Working Group that issues
releases, or any form of consensus with the movement, which read: “Occupy
News: Occupy Boston Resolves Legal Dispute. Last night the General Assembly
welcomed Paul Carnes and Sydney back to Occupy Boston with open
consensus-hands followed by an announcement by the Financial Accountability
Working Group (FAWG) of Occupy Boston. The announcement stated that Carnes
and Sherell have reached an agreement with members of the financial working
group on behalf of Occupy Boston to work out their differences after weeks
of a communication break-down and an intensive mediation lead by the
attorney David Kelston. Over 150 news articles and blog post were written
about this issue alone... When Carnes and Sherell took the stage at General
Assembly, it was clear that lessons have been learned, their motives were
pure at heart, and they truly care about the occupation... The goal is to
unite together and fight for what we believe, in solidarity for the good of
us all. Both Carnes and Sherell came to an agreement with Occupy Boston to
do just that. All is live and well in Occupy Land,” and

Whereas Carnes and Sherell have set up a series of fundraising sites
purporting to be for Occupy Boston among other occupations but are not part
of FAWG, and

Whereas Carnes has attempted to remove previously published information
about his unsavory activities from the Occupy Boston website, and

Whereas Carnes and Sherell have shown repeatedly that they have no respect
for horizontal democracy, of the wishes of the General Assembly, and are
still attempting to manipulate both Occupy Boston and the people outside of
the movement,

Therefore, this ad-hoc group of concerned individuals propose the General
Assembly of Occupy Boston agree by consensus to not allow Paul Carnes to
represent Occupy Boston in any capacity. Should Paul Carnes or Sydeny
Sherell attempt to speak for the movement or Occupy Boston again, further
releases and proposals will be issued to make it clear they are not
representatives of Occupy Boston. We will continue to disseminate this
information about Paul and Sydney to the entire global movement including
Occupy Together as well as individual occupations.

Paul Carnes and Sydney Sherell are also hereby removed, which means no
longer allowed at Occupy Boston sites.
