I apologize for adding to the email flood coming your way, but here's a quick note about a recent development I thought was important to share with you all:
Today during the first Spanish GA we began a group dedicated to subtitling important videos regarding the occupation into Spanish. I brought up the idea during yesterday's MEDIA meeting and collected email addresses from a couple of people interested in today's Spanish GA. We're not a huge group, and I think it's better this way. My hope is that we can coordinate with the MEDIA and TRANSLATION groups to select the content, translate it and distribute it through existing channels.
Today I also identified a group interested in creating original content in Spanish, highlighting stories of spanish-speaking occupiers, and also creating pieces about the occupation that cater directly to Latinos in NY. We will be meeting soon to establish a plan of action and will probably need your support at some point, so I will report back on that with any relevant information that may arise. If any of you receiving this email is interested in forming a part of this group, please write me and let me know.
So, my main request right now would be to get advice from all of you as to which are these important videos that should be subtitled ASAP. I think since we're just starting, trying to keep up with the Daily Re-cap might be a bit much, but is there a weekly re-cap? Is there a OWS 101 type of intro video out there? We are identifying some videos ourselves but I wanted to make you a part of the process. Please share any relevant links.
