Occupy Philadelphia here, an endorsement of the NGA to be held in Philadelphia has been blocked by the OP GA. They came to is right after out tristate . occupy conference. Little to the 99declarations knowledge we had about 10-20 OWS members their at the gathering who informed us that the originator M. Pollack has openly denounced OWS. After our amazing legal collective and other occupiers did some research we questioned their reps at the GA found MAJOR flaws in the info they were giving us so we made a binding vote to not endorse any move by the group.

Darennlobo, this has nothing to do with the Republicans or the Democrats.

What's the 99% Declaration Board?

Where can I get info on how the structure of the movement is (apparently) evolving?

The co opting begins. There is no working with these master manipulators, we can only oppose them. They run the political game. They, not us, know it inside & out. Working with them will only turn the occupy movement into a controlled opposition.

Sounds like a positive meeting. Hopefully we can see more cooperation of this type across the board!
