I think we gained the respect of Sacramento. The Left, here and everywhere, is a divided movement. I think Sacramento's Left can now invest more interest in Occupy. We can grow from being righteously disgruntled citizens, to being rightful leaders.

I feel our movement's future will be strongly influenced by Native Americans.

What are "Props"?

Kudos to Delphine. She overcame huge opposition here in Sacramento, within the mayfirst.org orbit (InterOccupy), and generally, to "force" white people to face-up to the Gorilla in the corner that undermines us. That Gorilla is the privilege and racism and patriarchy built into most people, who can't escape their whiteness.

@delphinebrody - I was unaware you had any problems with mayfirst and/or IO during your work with NatGat or the anti-racism training. Please clarify.

Agree, Delphine deserves mad props for bringing the training against many odds, as well as many volunteers in the last month, and various speakers.

Thanks Donna, David, Jennie, Michael. You helped vindicate Occupy Sacramento's importance. Thanks Laurie Faygo, Charlotte, Michael. Thanks Tricia and Sally.

Thanks to everyone at the last GA on Sunday's sharing circle. It, and the two minutes of silence were conceived in LA and brought to Sacramento by Daniel, Donna, Sergei, Annabelle, Niki, and Sea.

Special thanks to Donna, Lou, and Niki for raising very difficult questions regarding who controls IO, the email lists, and Loomio. For raising the issue of accountability and transparency in general, amongst those who could sabotage us the most by manipulating nation-wide technology. Those whom we don't see at local GAs.

Thanks to Sally, Tricia, Jackie and Cal, who it seems are the main folk carrying us forward from 2011 to 2014. They did hard work. All of us who labor in this way though, should be willing to accept criticism. So thanks for doing what you did and for being a part of the criticism process, so that our movement will become more powerful.
