Proposals for GA, 5/11/2012
Proposals for tomorrow:
1)rename civic space park to either solidarity park or Marty Atencio park
2)utilize progressive stack
3)allow online participation for the consensus process
The purpose for the proposal is to allow individuals who live in the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area the opportunity to participate online in the consensus process for Occupy Phoenix General Assemblies.
Proposal: We propose that the Occupy Phoenix General Assembly allow people who cannot physically attend GA the ability to participate in the consensus process electronically (and smoke signal if needed)…
To participate, an Occupier will need to register their livestream display name with someone at an onsite GA. They will need to re-register if they change their display name. They will also need to re-register their display name every month to continue to participate. Their display name does not HAVE to be their real name.
The registered livestream screen names will be kept in a publicly viewable online or physical spreadsheet that <blank> will have access to edit. The spreadsheet can be accessed here: <url>
Within livestream, chat will continue as normal. In addition, a moderator will take stack of people wishing to interact with the physical GA who make themselves known to the person at the GA monitoring the chat.
The person on stack is encouraged to call in via Skype (or other video calling program) so that they may express themself visibly and audibly. Alternatively they may call in for voice only. As a last option a person may read out loud the comments in chat.
* An attempt will be made to have a projector at GA to display the chat so that those onsite will be able to follow the chat/electronic converstations of those participating online.

<> point of process
If someone disapproves or blocks online, then leaves the online discussion, for whatever reason, that sentiment won’t be included in the final consensus tally. (it may be helpful to break this out into different reasons for leaving, but they may not be possible to discern at the time).
