Before rushing off and kissing Broodfields asses. Let's check into the reports that they have connections to bad real-estate dealings and can be directly linked to the subprime-morgage scandal.

I say we cheer on our allies but send a representative to the table with Brookfield. Once we arrive at a deal, then we cheer Brookfield if they sent a negotiator in good faith and their idea of "negotiations" isn't Benjamin Netanyahu's "Accept all our demands without concession then we'll talk" strategy.

I don't agree with thanking Brookfield publicly or privately but I really think we should thank all of our allies and supporters that mobilized to the park to defend last night and this morning.

It could be private. Anything we can do to "better relations" without hurting public image.

Propose it to the general assembly, but my gut feeling is we dont need to publicly thank Brookfield for so *graciously* allowing us to be in the public park they "own/operate".

> So politico is reporting that brookfield properties has withdrawn their cleaning schedule for the day. If this turns out to be true, I think we should really organize thank you letters, and make sure our sanitation team is in direct contact with their people. Maybe the Outreach Working group could make such a proposal at the GA?
> Can't hurt to try to make an ally of these people, especially since the Mayor still seems to be itching to get us out.
