General Assembly Agenda Wednesday June 20
AGENDA for Wednesday June 20 General Assembly (6-30pm @ Martin Place & online via Facebook Group )
Reportback from Blake of Occupy Austin who was with us here on State of Occupy in US ...
Report from Luke Skinner of Occupy Perth ( online)
Reportback from the Occupation Working Group (incomplete)
AGENDA ITEM: A PROPOSAL that Occupy Sydney adopt purpose specific crowd funding platforms i.e. sound systems , loud hailers, livestreaming backpack : heres an example of a platform I use for other projects http://www.indiegogo.com/ (posted by Occupy Sydney ) (Lanz)
AGENDA ITEM: PROPOSAL THAT AMBER & GLEN WALL BE REIMBURSED / PARKING FINES PAID (total amount under $400) from Legals Fund.Wallace Amber & Glenn William Wall placed a request at a GA some months ago for reimbursement of fines for parking offences .These were incurred on some of the many occasions when Amber arrived at short notice to assist occupiers under stress from police attacks. I understand that Wenny Theresia in her capacity as curator of Legals Funds is across the matter but has responsibly asked the GA to reaffirm the previous consent.
AGENDA ITEM: Occupy Sydney Policy on Paying / assisting with Fines. Following a lengthy discourse on a particular fines payment request which became controversial (in this group) a policy or protocol should be put in place as a point of reference. This could be a) that we pay them b) that we do not pay them c) that we assess on a case by case basis d) that we pay in this instance but not in that. Some other protocol altogether . PROPOSAL: That we accept the aforementioned statement as the basis for a WORKING GROUP to form to recommend back to GA a firm and fair policy which incorporates the diverse values of the people within Occupy Sydney . I would be happy to form this working group (as I'm known for fairness & impartiality (LOL) ) and encourage Jacquelene Drinkall Alex Parissi and others who are passionate about their viewpoint to participate in this WG. I recommend that the Working Group be notified at all GAs and reportback in a month to give all interested adequate time to participate.
AGENDA ITEM: ( Jacquelene Drinkall ) Parking fines only be paid by legal budget (as passed already), but that this should be a last resort and case by case occurrence, only when written dispute letters (help given by osyd if necessary) have failled to have fines withdrawn. Fines only paid if the payee agrees to supply receipt and sincere thanks to Occupy Sydney for this payment. No use use of the money for other purposes will be tolerated, and nor will boasting about using the money for other purposes, as this is considered to against the principals of Occupy Sydney. Fines are not to be paid out of the any other osyd budget (as already blocked) unless that budget is considered to have a generous surplus where campaign building, materials creative action and information desk pamplets etc. are more than covered.AGENDA ITEM: Parking fines only be paid by legal budget (as passed already), but that this should be a last resort and case by case occurrence, only when written dispute letters (help given by osyd if necessary) have failled to have fines withdrawn. Fines only paid if the payee agrees to supply receipt and sincere thanks to Occupy Sydney for this payment.

AGENDA ITEM: ( Jacquelene Drinkall ) Donation to Creative Action after a day of non-stop work for #M12 be returned by way of osyd budget whenever possible. This money was ordered to be given to Shelly, who spent all this money on a meal for two a half people, one of whom had strong ideological opposition to the purchase of food from Woollies. In contrast Creative Action needs funds and donations for new banner material and paints etc. for collective actions centred around the storage of Little Fish art trolley at Martin Place.
