The last time I took minutes and posted them, was last year. As a consequence, The Media Working Group announced all sorts of rules and reforms in the writing and posting of minutes, all of which I had offended in my cursive style. In fact, a rigid rule and tiny boxes were created, whereby the minute-taker had to fit his, or preferably, her very few words, or, preferably, single letters, into secure corsets, there to be held without charge or limit until the dictatorship freed them.
Those benign days of yore are gone now, and minute-takers, although still subject to “suggestions,” don’t listen to them. These minutes, then, rely simply on our few, excellent, basic “Ground Rules” of courtesy, fairness, democracy, and tolerance, anti-oppressive & collectively accessible.
That being said, a kind of writing muscle warm-up, Thom was our facilitator, beginning the meeting a mere ten minutes late. It being TUESDAY, of course, this general assembly was a “free-for-all” artistic creation, not following the excellent format of Sunday G. A.s. Between 20 and 25 occupiers were occupying the bookshop front room at Glenwood Coffee & Books, including a pretty hyper M–. Mo, the heroine of the week, was in the wings.
