The 1st General Assembly of World Anthropologists to Support Occupy Wall
The 1st General Assembly of World Anthropologists to Support Occupy Wall Street and Associated Movements
American Anthropological Association Meeting
Montreal, Canada November 17-20, 2011
Calling all anthropologists, interdisciplinary scholars, activists and citizens attending the 2011 AAA Meetings in Montreal:
Please join us for the 1st General Assembly of World Anthropologists who are involved or interested in the recent occupy movement for global economic change that is sweeping the globe. The details of our meeting and the actions we take will be determined by the consensus process during general assemblies that is being practiced by all of the occupations. David Graeber, one of the organizers of Occupy Wall Street, will be on hand to help facilitate and participate in the initial assembly.
We will meet in the lobby of the Montreal convention center on Thursday evening, November 17th after the AAA events at 9:30 PM. Please gather around the “Occupy G.A.” sign and we will adjourn to have the general assembly. Additional assemblies can be held throughout the weekend as necessary.
