Occupy Duluth snafu

The recent post on this site promoting Occupy Duluth appears to not be from anyone representing the actual persons organizing on the ground/in-person as Occupy Duluth (I say it in such a convoluted fashion because I don’t like giving the impression there is a membership, whoever wants to be part of Occupy Duluth is).

The link given for Facebook is to a group run by a random guy that doesn’t so much as come to our general assembly meetings (so far as I know, no-one I know has even met him in-person).

I wouldn’t have a problem with him running and promoting a group supporting Occupy Duluth if he stated his position and that he isn’t involved with the group in-person/on the ground but since he seems to be merely pretending to represent us without offering further info it’s hard to believe this action is well-intended and meant to help.

You can find more infos about the General Assembly holding/in-person action organizing Occupy Duluth group at OccupyDuluth.org as well as facebook.com/OccupyTwinPorts
and facebook.com/groups/ODsupporters — however this one keeps repeatedly being wiped of posts by some kind of nefarious ne’er-do-wells (I hesitate to say hackers b/c I don’t know how they are doing it), and will likely be replaced soon.

Also note — this post is an autonomous action by me and doesn’t represent the opinion of all the other awesome folks working under the Occupy Duluth banner.

Solidarity!
