I actually think that this is not a bad policy.

Perhaps the compromise is that while the GA doesn't accept endorsements, it doesn't refuse them either. What is being made here is amazing, and people want to align themselves to the cause. Just allow them to send in their endorsements, we can still publicize them through outside blogs and twitter, just not through official channels.

This way their alignment is public, which is why they do it, but not promoted through official GA channels....and as the owners of tumbrs/twitters/blogs whathaveyou the editors of those entities can choose to run an endorsement or not.

what do you think?

The policy of the GA is to not accept endorsements. Should we change it? The argument for doing so is that many organizations and individuals share are perspective and want to endorse. Endorsements could widen our appeal to and help get our message out to the “99%.” For example in some sectors Chomsky’s endorsement would give us prestige. Union endorsements would have a big influence on members of the labor movement. On the other hand, there may be some endorsements we would want to reject.


Can someone explain the GA rationale for not accepting any endorsements?

Let's be sure that we start to list all the endorsements, letters of support, etc. in our web page.

The New York City Green Party and movement support the Occupation of Wall Street and condemn our autocratic Mayor Bloomberg under whose command the police engaged in systematic brutality of peaceful demonstrators against a predatory and parasitic financial order centered in Wall Street.  We applaud the expression of direct democracy that this occupation embodies.
