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. Along with denouncing our brothers and sisters at OWS we were also informed that not only did the organizers of the NGA have a closed door meeting with our mayor, council, and other city officials but meet with a splinter group of OP that had denounced our GA. Along with making deals with Philadelphia's 1% they turned to the them for police enforcement and major security measures just in case. 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.
