The first thing the LOC needs to do is to start reaching out to all the unions that have supported OWS. That means that if you signed up to be a LOC point person for a union, contact them about this. Jackie said last night that we only have point people for a few unions and we haven't really used the point people yet. We should try to improve the system. Does anyone have the URL for the list of point people? Let's see which unions need point people and if we can get anyone to take responsibility for calling them.

Jackie, you could be right about the call not adding much. One way we'll be able to judge that is by seeing how many endorsements get sent in as a response to the call. OWS has a huge platform right now, so it could make a big difference. The call is on the web, Facebook and email. We have contacts with the AFL-CIO, which could be huge. There's really no way to tell ahead of time how much traction we'll get with it, we have to try it to find out. In addition to helping to build the day of action, this will also be a test case for how big our reach is. But I think that passing it was definitely the right thing to do, both because there should be a national response to this and because the national movement is advanced enough at this point that a national call from the original occupation could mobilize large numbers of people.

On further reflection after last night’s Labor Group meeting endorsed a national action for Nov.,2, I’ve thought that we should not call actions with little time and minimal or no implementation plans. Nov 2 will happen in NYC because we’ve already mobilized on the issue, and Direct Action & the GA will organize it. The Labor Group did nothing to plan its contribution too implementation after we voted to support it. Some occupations across the country are planning to act on their own. Egyptians have already had a support march! But I don’t know how much our national call will add.

 

Do we have any collaborators outside NY for Nov. 17? What will make it national?

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY


 
November 2nd: National Day of Action in Solidarity with Occupy Oakland and in Defense of the Occupy Movement Nationally

On October 25th, Occupy Oakland was brutally attacked by riot police.  One protestor, Iraq veteran Scott Olson, remains in critical condition.  But on Wednesday, thousands of protestors re-occupied Oscar Grant Plaza in courageous defiance of this attempt at repression.  The Oakland General Assembly has called for a general strike on Wednesday, November 2nd.  Given this call, and given the national attempt by mayors and police to repress and silence our movement, the Labor Outreach Committee of Occupy Wall Street is calling for a national day of action on November 2nd in solidarity with Occupy Oakland and in defense of the Occupy movement nationally.  We urge students, labor, the unemployed and all members of the 99% to take action on that day to send a message that our movement will not be silenced.

To endorse, email november2endorse@gmail.com
