The recent loss has inspired OccupyLA to rewrite a proposal designated at facilitating our communal progress.

There was a lot of plight and confusion last night as to what is next in the OccupyLA faction after the tremendous loss of our fallen brother Alex yesterday what is certain is that we move onward.

Alex was one of the first people I met at occupy and though not many of us ever had the honor of getting to know him well, we however were all able to admire and observe how organized and positive he remained throughout what later became revealed  the toughest time of this young exciting artist’s life.

In honor of our first fallen hero and brother Alex Weinschenker

Thank you for everything Alex, we miss you so much already.

The Kindness Proposal
 
  “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” – John Fitzgerald Kennedy  
 
 
 
 
 What specifically does your proposal do?  
Welcome accessibility openly to a wider community audience and open an OccupyLA hub/home.
 
 
 
 
 
 How specifically will your propsal do this? Through all of the following but not limited to
 

  • Lessons and Education
Offer  ‘Green Collar’ curriculum that can be utilized by both OLA and Communities. Teach young and old alike restorative trades collective Aquaponics, Farming, Dog Training, Music Lessons, Art Classes, Web Design, Prefab (Mini House) Architecture, Cooking, Solar technology, Foreign oil engine conversions: Electric & Bio fuel
 
  • Community Outreach:
Campaigning to raise awareness, Fundraising/canvassing donations for sponsorship, free meals, free interenet wifi, free computer resource center,
  • Job Training/ Job placement (SSI advocacy)

:   Basic training and community development to expand all offered services strategically throughout LA to other local areas.

  •  Drug and alcohol Counseling
: AB541 & Prop 36. certified. Harm reduction counseling and resources
 
  •  Hosting Art shows/ Events
: Speakers, Music, Art, Food, Theatre can now be hosted at a central location or at least the organization from one centralized facility.  
 
 
 
 
Why should we have a concensus?
 
 
This will promote an encouraged sense of professionalism and dignity throughout the community not by what we say we stand for, but by our celebrations that stand for what we say.
 
 Because we are always striving to remain conscious of the growing need to care for our hurting Brothers and Sisters no matter how broke we are. This proposal will help sever current and future obstacles that threaten OccupyLAs transparency with isolation.
 
 To further grant, facilitate, and equip our Brothers & Sisters accessibility to basic entitlements to resources such as Water, Food, Shelter, Internet, Information, isn’t only our natural given rights but it is our fundamental responsibility as the 99%.
 
 Through immediately renting our own center as a headquarters to purchase back all the damages on a publicly documented scale.
 
The world is watching occupyLA and we are Occupying OccupyLA to perpetuate the expansion and dignity of OccupyLA as a faction as well an overall movement.
 
 Once we establish a place to organize and educate we can then further explore community owned organized businesses and enterprises by facilitating restoration from the ground up.
 
 
 
 
 
Onelove. Onward.

City Hall there is Occupy Iran. Occupying America means more to me than the rich sleeping side by side with the poor and neglected.

Occupy America means FREEDOM.

Finally, this past sunday Jan. 15 2012 marked not only Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday but also the 25th anniversary of Public Enemy and their formation. Good vibes and solidarity was exchanged all day. And we received the notable support of Chuck D and Kurupt of the Dogg Pound. Further uniting the youth in solidarity to fight off the corporate power.
