From Occupy Washington Square meeting notes of October 22nd:
Who we are: The General Assembly of Washington Square Park – we are different from “OWS” in Zucotti Park, which is a 24-hour occupation.
What does “occupy” mean? – can mean ‘occupy your mind’; ‘occupy the space your mind’; ‘occupy public spaces’
This is a space for open forum and discussion, to give all voices a chance to be heard.
