Radio are facing a similar situation with WBAI who's offered us a half hour show 5 days a week. We are committed maintaining our democratic process and transparency, and to functioning independently of any non-OWS outlet. 

We know there is another group of people doing radio who are communicating with BAI but Tony Bates (prod. manager) has not put us in touch with them (as he promised to do) So if anyone involved with that reads this, please get in touch with us.

The Media Group Passed the following proposal at this mornings 11AM meeting.  The numbers we're not large enough to sustain a consensus therefore this is your opportunity to vote YAY or NAY.  Please VOTE as this proposal will be decided today.

I propose, that OccupyMedia/GlobalRevolution tenatively accept Manhattan Neighborhood Network's offer to utilize their network on Saturday 15th to support the global action day, 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.

Friendly amendments:

We require that MNN have no influence on the message of OccupyMedia.
We require that NO reciprocal official endorsement be made on the part of Occupy Wall Street and Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
Should MNN be unable to provide these services, we have the authority to pursue substantially similar solutions.
