Notes from Occupy Rapid City General Assembly May 21, 2012

Posted: May 24, 2012 by firewalker2012 in Activism, Events, General, Meeting Notes

A concern about Occupiers posting on the Occupy Rapid City Facebook page information promoting Ron Paul was discussed. ORC at a previous General Assembly meeting agreed not to support or promote any political party or candidate. No decision was reached.

 

It was agreed that the next South Dakota Peace and Justice meeting topic will be What Is Occupy? Members of ORC will serve as panelists. The meeting will be on June 12 in the coffee room of St. Isaacs Jogues Church, 221 Knollwood Drive, Rapid City, starting at 7:00 pm.

 

Investors from Boulder CO are trying to get an old mining permit transferred to them for a proposed mine above Spearfish Canyon, and local enviro groups are fighting the transfer. Opponents should send LTEs to local papers and attend a meeting June 7 at the Deadwood City Hall at 1:30 pm to give input.

 

Should ORC have a table on Thursday Nights? Hand out small fliers?

 

Our signs at Main Street Square should have lettering big enough to be read from passing cars. Jim Petersen will make signs for anyone who lacks the materials. Call him at 342-6245.

 

Recommended book: “It’s Even Worse Than It Looks” by Mann and Ornstein

 

Marv plans to invite Occupiers to his ranch to repaint the peace and enviro and medicine wheel signs on the hillside near the runway where Ellsworth fighter planes take off.

 

June 25 the film Miss Representation will be screened by Heartland Film Society (again) at the Elks Theater at 6:30 pm.

 

Theme for Saturday protest: the military industrial complex
