“Occupy Melbourne Florida’s (OMF) ninth General Assembly met successfully, with twenty-one people in attendance, on December 5th at 7pm at the Sun Shoppe and Cafe in downtown Melbourne. With plans underway on getting food to those in need and using that as an opportunity to spread awareness, the Direct Actions team was also approved to start working on plans to have an Occupy presence in the Healthy Living Expo February 25th 2012. Additionally, at least four Occupy Melbourne members will be attending the Peoples Convention of Florida starting December 9th, 2011 joined by several others from Occupation sites across the state. Just in time, the Media team has released a preliminary brochure to introduce newcomers to the Occupation idea which will be made available for all occupation sites to customize. Solidarity was shown even among local High School students doing a film project on the national debt who also chose to sit in and listen on our General Assembly.”

We'd like to add that we've created a google-group and have invited you all to join it so that we can use the distribution list for automatic blind-copying and no spam. In using this group we can promote others joining our updates list more easily and get people interested in getting involved and keeping other Occupy sites up to date.
