Subject:   SPAM-MED: Re: [september17discuss] #OccupyWallStreet stays alive by becoming #WeAreThe99

If I arrive in time tomorrow I will try to propose it at the General

Assembly. When are they planning on holding the GA?


I also plan on making a proposal that I think would be compatible with

the image "rebranding" proposal: that we attempt to reframe our

communication with the world by drafting a Constitution, a set of

common values that could represent us and the society that we as a

movement are trying to model-forth, rather than proposing "Demands" as

we've been calling them. It's my understanding that this is what

happened in Spain, with considerable success.
