#J29 OCCUPY WASHINGTON SQ PARK
Occupy Wall Street is four months old. We don’t live in a park anymore, but we’re still here, and we’re still fighting for economic justice. Now, OWS is coming to a neighborhood near you. Over the next few months, mobile, daytime occupations, called Occupy Town Squares, will be held in parks and other public spaces, indoor and outdoor, around New York City. For a few hours a week, these events will recreate the essence of the Zuccotti Park Occupation. There will be info tables, teach-ins, trainings, and political discussions.
Whether you consider yourself a supporter of the movement or not, we want to meet you: come share your ideas and stories, learn about the movement, argue with us, debate with us, collaborate with us. If you’re already active in OWS, this is a chance to exchange information, to coordinate between working groups, and to get to know our brothers and sisters in the movement.
SHARE OWS is a new program from OWS Arts Network that facilitates the sharing of content being produced within the OWS movement. What does that mean? Anyone working within OWS/NYCGA is free to re-circulate art, writing, photography, poetry, and other content produced within the OWS movement and for the movement. Read more about it here.
We need your help: If you are a member of a working group, collective, affinity group, or thematic group within OWS/NYCGA, please contact us so we can add you the SHARE OWS list: firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to Arts & Culture on the A&C Forum or the 917 Wall Street Arts Forum. You can also help by spreading the word about this program and asking other groups to participate!

Al was concerned about news regarding the posters being given to Historical Society. Morgan CQ: First, who has authority to do so? Al – Why are posters being given away when young sign painters who need money can sell them. POI Jack was also concerned about the signs? Where are they? POI Adrian said he thought many were in Archives @SIS, but others said that SIS has now moved to Brooklyn. POI Jack said James was missing things. (Antonio had also brought up issues of museums collecting artifacts from OWS) – all decided to put this issue formally on the agenda.
