84-Year-Old Dorli Rainey, Pepper-Sprayed at Occupy Seattle, Denounces "Worsening" Police Crackdowns This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form. JUAN GONZALEZ: Police departments across the country are coming under criticism for using excessive force against Occupy Wall Street protesters over the past two months. AMY GOODMAN: To talk more about what happened, Dorli Rainey is joining us right now from Seattle. Dorli Rainey, welcome to Democracy Now! DORLI RAINEY: Good morning. I am a member of Occupy Seattle. I got pepper-sprayed because we were penned in by the motor—by the bicycle groups, until there was no way out. My problem is not only with police brutality, it is with the progressive getting worse attitude of the police. And what we have to do is change the mindset of people that guns will not solve our crisis. AMY GOODMAN: I wanted to get your comment, Dorli, on the Seattle mayor, Mike McGinn, apologizing Wednesday to protesters who were pepper-sprayed Tuesday night. NORM STAMPER: I certainly do believe that. CHUCK WEXLER: Well, yeah. CHUCK WEXLER: Yeah.

We Are the 99 Percent 14th October 2013 Question with 172 notes Anonymous asked: How can you claim to speak for 99% of people? We don’t claim to speak for anyone, we merely present stories. 14th October 2013 Photo with 186 notes I am 23 years old I am a female (not that it should make a difference, but apparently in our society it does…) From the day I moved out of my parent’s house, I’ve supported myself 100%, not because they don’t love me but because they can’t support my dreams financially. For over two years I schlepped 2-for-1’s and shots to pay for my rent, a used car, and tuition at a community college. Now I’m attending the University of MN and I depleted all of my savings just so I wouldn’t have to take out a loan this semester. I’m majoring in journalism, a profession I consider a civic duty. I am the 99%. 14th October 2013 Question with 12 notes Anonymous asked: We are the 99 percent- Why don't we RECALL these extremist NUTS that are in Washington, DC.??!!!! 9th September 2013 Thank you!

Les Ekovores Spokes Council Proposal Matt Lepacek Sorry for the spam but this is important Hi, I’m Matt from Open Source, Internet, Global Revolution-Livestream, I’m one of the technical people here and I really need you to ignore the length of this letter and still read it and even click on the link to the product I am discussing here. In Open-Source we have readily available tools that can be factored into the problem of our growing GA, to facilitate further brainstorming about the SC model solution. These tools are a system of quick-voting and polling tools both physical (paper) and electronic. A number of ideas have been tossed around including a) handing a printed ticket with unique serial code to each attendant to identify their unique votes for the session so that the system can not be manipulated by people not in attendance. b) a phone system that users can dial into to vote using touch-tone and voice response c) a smartphone / iphone / android application for quick voting e) all of the above

General Assembly has three main sections: 1) Announcements - working groups and individuals have the opportunity to make announcements to the larger community, 2) Proposals - working groups and individual members can make proposals for the community to decide upon, 3) Individual Stack - an opportunity for members to share thoughts, opinions and feelings, relevant to Occupy Boston. General Assemblies are open to all Occuy Boston believes that every voice is equal, and the community has agreed upon a procedure to try to ensure that possibility. At this time, Occupy Boston uses (what some call) a modified consensus process. Calling it consensus is a bit of a misnomer, because votes are held at General Assemblies, and if a community is asked to vote, the community is not practicing consensus.
