I would like to submit this for official agenda proposal tomorrow. If meeting group numbers are not sufficient to sustain a consensus we will defer to online group consensus (I believe that was decided today?).
I propose, that OccupyMedia/GlobalRevolution
tenatively accept Manhattan Neighborhood Network's
offer to utilize their network on Saturday 15th, pending a meeting between the #LiveStream
subgroup and representatives from MNN to determine the viability of this solution. Should the resources provided by MNN be found appropriate to support our efforts, as determined by the #LiveStream subgroup, I propose that OccupyMedia accept their offer. Additional Information:
-This action will help us rapidly build infrastructure we desperately need to have any hope of supporting Saturdays effort.
-Not only will this relationship give us access to a controlled broadcast space, it may also allow us to take a leap forward in our mobile coverage.
-Despite the fact that the MNN studio is on the Upper West Side, I believe that location could still act as a hub. If not, with the prospect of field equipment, we may have the ability to set up our 'newsroom' somewhere in the financial district...
-Without this option, we will have to submit a budget request to General Assembly. If the past is any indicator, getting money approved by GA is a long process, we may not have time for.
-If you require further clarifying information please check out http://15october.net/
Here is a blurb:
"On October 15th people from 662 cities – 79 countries
all over the world will take to the streets and squares.
From America to Asia, from Africa to Europe, people will rise up to claim their rights and demand a true democracy. Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non violent protest."
If you do not require further information I encourage you to vote Yay or Nay at this time. Your vote would be appreciated as it will help expedite this time critical issue.The Whole World is Watching

I was at the meeting taking notes today in Battery Park. It seems to
me that MNN would be a perfect solution, if they are available. I am
certainly willing to help any way I can. I would vote "yes" but I am
not sure where it is that we vote. At the meeting you expressed a
great need to move fast. In that case I hope others know where to vote
and also vote "yes."
