Supporters are needed to help out at Zuccotti Park:
we're in desperate need of bodies here. The drumming will happen from 12-2 and 4-6pm.
That means that we need folks in these shifts:
2-4pm people here to make sure drumming doesn't start
5:45pm - 8pm ppl here to make sure drumming stops at 6pm sharp and doesn't start again
8pm - 10pm ppl here to make sure drumming doesn't start
This is an all-call. Really really need help, tonight.
There are some fabulous drummers here who have been in mediation with OWS and the community board for weeks.
There are a small handful of drummers who have been violent, agro, and committed to playing as loud as they can, for as long as they can (until 11pm this weekend).
Tomorrow night is the community board meeting, they are logging when they hear drumming and keeping a record.
If we can show that we've made progress in implementing the Good Neighbor Policy that limits drumming then they won't call for our eviction (they in fact have been bending over backwards to support and defend us). If we can't get support here tonight at 6pm, or tomorrow, then we are facing an eviction vote at tomorrow's meeting, in front of all the cameras, and we lose the electeds and allies who've gone to bat for us. I'm not incredibly optimistic, I think we're close to the end of OWS this week, but we have a fighting chance.
