Call to disendorse Occupy Sydney endorsed site
February 7, 2012 § 5 Comments
I’ve recently put around a call for the GA endorsed occupysydney.org.au site to shape up or be disendorsed.
While one of those who tightly control and censor that site has verbalised an agreement to improve it and put in place a cumbersome process to make this happen, the continued use of the site to propogate personal agendas ( as with the latest post ( http://www.occupysydney.org.au/2012/02/07/what-now-for-occupy-sydney/ ) is NOT what Occupy Sydney should be endorsing as the public face of Occupy. The post, by the same person who has wilfully dimunised the tireless work of many to keep an occupation in place as “an info desk” (perhaps what he and the pigs prefer) , offends this and other occupiers in that it seeks to force us to engage in the endless futile discussions he and others so enjoy, AS WELL AS WORKING TO KEEP AN OCCUPATION A REALITY .
In the discussions we have had recently he made no mention of his intent to make this a public issue nor his intent to stimulate ill will towards the occupation or occupiers in the many online forums so enjoyed by many Occupy Sydney participants.
And his timing is perfect. For the police and those who desire to eliminate an occupation.
I did not choose to bring this discussion online or into a public forum. That poster did. And in doing so forced me to spend time responding to his couch sitting postulations shifting my focus energy and time from building and maintaining the occupation. This is the same person who “forgot” to post the minutes of many Dec/Jan GAs perhaps because the decisions made did not suit his construct of what occupy should be. In discussions with this person the sole agreement we made was to support more autonomous actions -Not to have a mob who know care little about the occupation make all the decisions on how it should function .
In a previous post /media release http://www.occupysydney.org.au/2012/02/02/occupy-sydney-evicted-from-martin-place-on-its-111th-day-of-occupation-media-release-press-conference-information/ Vicki falsely claimed that Occupy Sydney had been evicted. I have no idea why . It was simply NOT TRUE and remains untrue.
The occupation site description is incorrect http://www.occupysydney.org.au/about/contact-us/ . We are at the corner of Elizabeth St and Martin Pl.
Why is the site directing mail to “Occupy Together? “
The site is just too dysfunctional & operated by a clique who massage the message to suit their own agendae -whatever that is. It has become more a personal blog & so should be disendorsed. I will be proposing such at the Wednesday GA and proposing that no site be endorsed as the official Occupy Sydney site
