InterOcc Working Group Calls
Movement Building Conference Calls

Objective

There are over 1,700 cities around the globe that have participated in the demonstrations in response to the Occupy Wall St. action, which began September 17, 2011. The objective of this working group is to connect Occupy Austin to as many other occupied locations around the world as possible. We hope to facilitate the sharing of information and wisdom from other occupations.

Advice from the Portland Model

Advice using Twitter

Sending messages to those working at Occupy Wall Street was definitely helped us gain notice. People are heavily following #occupywallstreet, #takewallstreet, #usdor, as well as a number of other widely used hash tags. Each tweet sent out would include a tag with a trending tag, my city (#pdx) as well as a link to the facebook group.

Also we paid attention to the amount of followers people had, and mentioned them as well.

Portlanders were watching, so they were bound to jump on board once they knew about a protest here. Nearly all of us are using Twitter, so they used the same approach when spreading the group link around the internet.

Advice using Facebook

We first started a Group that opened up discussion to hear out everyone’s ideas, concerns and thoughts on how they could help. This was a very important stage in our organizational efforts.
