The next two meetings of the Demands Working Group will be at 6:00 PM

Sunday, October 16 and at 7:00 PM Tuesday, October 18 at Zuccotti Park.

We are planning to meet at these same times weekly. These times were

agreed on at the last meeting, although they are accidentally omitted

from the minutes. Due to the crowds in the park itself we will be first

gathering at the Red Cube statue across the street from the East edge of

the park. We may have to relocate from there depending on police

presence, since this is outside the occupied area.

 

At the last meeting we agreed to focus our own efforts first on the two

demands( Jobs for All-- A Massive Public Works Program; and End the

Attacks on our Rights) because they seemed to be the least controversial

among us. We agreed on a goal of refining these demands and proposing

them to the General Assembly by October 23. We would next focus on

discussing the more controversial demands dealing with the financial

system and the electoral process, since in those areas there were

several conflicting demands. For example, for the financial systems

proposed demands ranged from reinstating Glass Stengel to nationalizing

the entire financial system with many in between.No one wants to ignore

these demands—we just decided to handle them second, after the ones we

can agree on more easily.

 

Please come on Sunday and help refine our first two demands and talk

about a strategy for getting agreement from the whole Occupy Wall Street

movement and the GA.
