No working group proposals.

Individual proposals

Cobina: That Occupy Melbourne transition to a spokes-council model in place of the General Assemblies on Wednesdays in accordance with the Occupy Portland model which has been distributed online and in person to occupiers. The model allows for both affinity and working groups to be a part of the spokes council. The model also does not require that groups are removed from the spokes council if they do not show up to three consecutive meetings. Any group can become a member of the spokes council. The spokes council model will be tested out a few times as a trial before it begins in three weeks time. The location of the spokes council meetings is to be determined.
