Occupy Aotearoa Skype conference call

The first national Skype conference has held on Monday as a result of Michael’s initiative with a follow up call last night (Tuesday). Dunedin, Wellington, Auckland, Bay of Plenty and Christchurch was represented. This conference call was kicked off for better communication, collaboration and solidarity between the Occupations. Under discussion were things like;

…a nationwide “The People’s Parliament”  on 11.11.11 with a canned food drive over the weekend.

…high level overview on each camp and how they are going (A call went out at GA to gather support for Christchurch as they are struggling a bit with numbers)

…Dunedin received notification that the “Police don’t believe serving the Trespass Notice meets the test of balancing the rights and freedoms of all parties.”
