UPDATE: Unofficial Online Conference
There is an idea floating that the Australian cities should connect a bit more, to try and increase feelings of solidarity and maybe stability.

Here is a link to a conference room. There will be a meeting at around 8pm (Australian WST +8:00), for anyone who's interested.
All Australian's invited.

For now, there is an agenda proposal up and conversation about the agenda is open until 8pm.
Click the link for more information and to join the conversation

I will post ideas presented below.

Hey guys,
See from 6:40
There's a great interview with a reporter who has been at OWS from day 3, speaking on the eviction and the conviction it's given to the occupiers. Plus straight after that there's an interview with someone from Occupy Melbourne about the occupation so far at the Treasury Gardens.

Audio, for the download conscious! XD

Just a reminder guys that the occupation is starting right now @ Perth Cultural Center. At 7PM we will begin talking about the questions and how the Q&A will be run.
The Q&A starts at 7:30pm, head down whether you like us or loath us. All people are invited to question the Occupy movement globally and locally.
Equally, anybody can stand up and answer questions.

Latest Occupy Perth Newsletter
See link below

Also a proposal will be made this Thursday to play a 30 min video which is Part 1 in a 4 part mini series of videos collected on the Global Occupy Movement.
It will be addressing the first part of the quote:

"First they ignore you,
Then they mock you,
Then they fight you,
Then you win."

Whether or not it is chosen to be played it will be uploaded between Sunday 3am-8am, for anyone interested.
A news update, for the news not in the news. XD

Iceland from 2003 to now.

Another example of positive global news never being shown on our media.
522 citizens put their hand up to write a new Constitution for Iceland.
25 citizens were voted to write this Constitution online.

Today Iceland is getting back on track and is refusing to bow to pressure being supported in Greece, Spain and Italy, who are saying that privatisation of national assets is the answer.

Some Factual Errors in the Article:
"I am an Icelandar and thank you for this article. There are three things wrong . Iceland is not par member of the European Union, we nearly went bankrupt but not compleatly. Yceland war independant in 1944 not 1918."
- Vilmundur Hansen

"However, it is a member of the EFTA (European Free Trade Area). "
- Tom Sullivan
