Today marks day 120 of Occupy Austin. We are currently facing a situation where the City Hall managers are requesting that we take down our media & medic tent and remove the library. The GA has come to consensus to do nothing in response to these requests (IE, NOT remove anything) as there has been no written request from officials at City Hall to do such actions. Several requests have been made to City Hall for a written request of the removal of tents and no such response has come back. Stay tuned.


The calendar was last updated this morning (2/2/2012).
