Occupy Sarasota GA Discusses Participation in People's Convention of Florida
A couple of week's ago, Occupy Orlando announced its intention to hold a People's Convention of Florida with delegates from Occupations around the state. In keeping with the inclusivity and direct democracy of the Occupy Movement, members of the general public are also invited to participate. Occupy Sarasota reached consensus and decided to send a delegate. At yesterday's General Assembly, many topics were suggested to put forward at the Convention. One topic bandied about was the creation of a new political party. Individuals in the group were of different opinions on the subject.
