Planning for Global Conversation and Convergence in solidarity with the Occupy National Gathering in Kalamazoo, Michigan, 21-25 August 2013

Below is a post to share with a lot of information. I am not sure of the mumble configuration – it is the occupycoordination server, and NatGat2 room (or channel?).

We will also be joining the Via22 mumble on Friday, March 22 @ Noon ET, 4 PM GMT

Please Share!
Join us Wednesday night at 8 PM ET to continue to plan and develop the National Gathering this year.

We will be forming working groups and ask for your input and your help moving forward. We wish to include grass roots, alternative medias , rights, advocacy, unions, artists, and more to make this a gathering for all who wish to make a better tomorrow.

This year the national Gathering is hyper-local and global in focus. We envision days of concerted worldwide actions focused on very local issues that expose those local issues as part of the worldwide fight against systemic injustice. We will be in solidarity with Via 22 actions each month beginning with Earth Day April 21-22. We will gather and share this worldwide action through all the media tools and networks we continue to build through voluntary people power.

We already have networks on board with these broad areas of interest and welcome and need your suggestions, participation and contributions:.
1. Fixing Fossil Fuels and Creating an Environmentally Sustainable Future.
2. Economic and Trade Justice, Equal Access and Ending Corporate “Personhood”, Asserting the People’s Sovereignty.
3. Making and Supporting Free, Unfettered Media.
4. Ending War and Our Police State, Building Peace and Cooperation.
5. Renew Kalamazoo and your community. Homeless Bill of Rights.

What issues effect your local community and the worldwide community? Network solidarity events locally, regionally, nationally, globally. Together, A Better World Is Possible!

To connect to Maestro Calls for free internationally please see:
New access point to MaestroConference events (for Windows users)
free while in beta. need computer and headset.

We will also be experimenting with hosting a mumble meeting that will enable you to be on mumble and hear the call. The normal signals for turn and WWW will be used on mumble and be relayed to the call, and you can speak normally when the one mumble mic is turned on from the conference call. Come help us test it.
