As the Occupy movement attempts to make a comeback, the flagship Occupy Wall Street group is broke. An announcement on the New York General Assembly website lays out the stark reality.
This week is the week: we don’t have enough money to meet our recurring budgets. Accounting does not feel ok about spending the rest of our money on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis (ie, if kitchen found accounting first, they could take all the rest of the money and no one else would get any.)
So, what we would like to do on Tuesday is reserve some time for a conversation about how to handle this, and hopefully from this discussion will come a proposal which we can reach consensus upon.
Our humble suggestion? Try asking President Obama for a bailout.
