Open Forum next Friday
I went back to Occupy Wall Street two nights ago after work. I hadn’t been there since last Friday, and all of the tents made the place awfully depressing. I was getting kind of skeeved out when I found myself next to the “red structure” and in the middle of the beginning of an “Open Forum” about Media Justice.
It was the first time I was an actual human microphone for a meeting, and the speeches were really good (they explained net neutrality and the cell phone industry). I was super impressed, and afterwards I introduced myself to the organizer. She explained it’s part of the Education and Empowerment working group.
Bottomline is, I’m giving an Open Forum about the financial system next Friday, November 4th. Very exciting! This format is exactly what I was hoping for when I tried to do the “teach-in” a couple of weeks ago. It’s also a chance to hand out my flyer.
I have to go write a speech consisting of 4-word phrases now. Kind of like poetry.
