There will be several important meetings tomorrow to discuss plans for a possible self-eviction of Occupy Philly. Several ideas were proposed at tonight's non-violence vigil about how to deal with a potential eviction from Dilworth Plaza by the city. One idea was to self-evict OP by moving across the street with the help of several labor unions who support OP and were willing to help with relocation efforts.
According to the legal collective, because we likely do not have a legal claim to free speech at Dilworth due to the imminent construction, we have a slim chance of winning a court battle for an injunction to force the city to let us stay there. However, our chances of claiming a site in the name of free speech are increased if we move to another location.
There will be a discussion on this idea and any others to come up with plans to deal with a potential eviction. If you would like to bring forth a proposal, ask questions, or address concerns, please come down to the Friends Centers for these meetings.
2:00 pm - Discussion of ideas on self-eviction of OP to Thomas Paine Plaza or some other location to preemptively avoid getting evicted by the city of Philadelphia.
5:00 pm - Coordinating Committee Meeting to bring forth an emergency proposal to move OP tents to another location with the assistance of the labor unions.
7:00 pm - General Assembly Vote on emergency proposals.
