“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Attributed to Margaret Mead.

OccupySF Outreach Meeting Minutes


April 12, 2017

Review of Occupy Groups List completed.

April 9, 2017 Facebook Share Bottom Graphic Problem Solution:

The Jill Stein/Occupy-Oakland-GA-Logo problem was fixed by deleting the original image, which was linked to the U.K. Guardian site, and substituting the identical image from the occupysf.net media library.

Setting the Default Image for Shared Post Without an Image:

SEO Default Image Setting:
occupysf.net > dashboard > SEO > Social > facebook tab > Default Settings
This image is used if the post/page being shared does not contain any images.
URL: (enter url from occupysf.net media library)

“The images on this page contain alt attributes.”

Attempted to share the post “Jill Stein raises over $4.5m to request US election recounts in battleground states By admin | November 25, 2016 “ to John Fraser’s FB page.

The article appeared but not the image. Instead the Occupy Oakland logo was shown.

Following the links below yielded a clue that the posting metadata was incorrect.

Occupy Oakland image in Facebook posting:

Click the Facebook Share button of the Jill Stein posting above.

Right click the posting in the Facebook Share window and select page info.

Click the Media button at the top.

Scroll through the Addresses and look for “image” in the type column.

Click on that address and the image will be displayed.



Social media platforms may not display image. Enabled Open Graph tags procedure.

Dashboard > SEO> Social: Facebook and Twitter.

Facebook Settings > Enable open graph meta settings, Front page settings > enter default image and title. Same for Twitter.


Facebook Sharing Not Working Or: how to update Facebook sharing data.

If you’ve updated your social settings or metadata for an article?

Force update Facebook’s cache > Facebook debug tool. Does not work on my fb page.

Facebook Crawler


If you’ve updated your social settings or metadata for an article and aren’t getting the right details in Facebook yet, you might need to force update Facebook’s cache of that page. To do that, go to the Facebook debug tool, enter the URL you wish to update and click scrape again. After that you should be ok.

1  Go to the Facebook debug tool.
2  Enter the URL you wish to update.
3  Click ‘Debug’

Thoughts on Occupy events calendar:

Currently each organizer sends out mass emails to all their individual followers. Occupy, being a follower, receives individual emails from all organizers, groups all the individual emails into the Occupy Calendar and then mass emails them to all our followers. Outreach then posts the calendar on the Occupy site.

Start on intro to Democracy Earth for DOS/Net Party tri-fold:

Democracy Eaarth

Democracy Earth
“Power in your hands. A planetary commons of peers. For everyone, anywhere.”

What differentiates valid elections from surveys is strong identity validation. We are working with pioneering decentralized protocols for identification, so no single corporation (like Facebook) or government (think Estonia) owns your credentials. Only you are in control.

The blockchain — which is, briefly put, an incorruptible and public ledger made up of data that is stored decentrally, entirely distributed and interconnected.

Information for OccupySF GA Proposal:

Occupy 5th Anniversary Celebration

I’m very excited to start Planning meetings for Occupy’s 5 year anniversary. We’re planning an art and music celebration and we are looking forward to collaborating with the bay area activist community. Read on and see what we have started and be part of planning the extravaganza.
Lets get together informally to talk on this site. Please register and then comment in the ‘Arguments’ box. Suggest what you would like to see happen and rate other arguments.  -Debra Elaine Lujan

Debra, there is a online GA available to use in the 5th anniversary planing. Register, post propositions, comment, and vote. I know not everyone has internet but it does allow discussions and voting between physical meetings. Fosters communication. If you have any questions just leave a comment.

“start a chapter” http://democracyos.com/democracies

1. Siri: Is there a site to help us keep up with progress of DemocracyOS development, what is being done now, and the overall plan? A weekly or monthly blog perhaps? This would help us promote DOS in OccupySF and San Francisco Bay Area in general.
2. Siri: Our DOS sites are down. How to build DOS sites like demo page which are still up?
3. Siri: How to promote a democracy? How to inform and encourage participation? Facebook?
4. Robb: Possible two identical sites, .org and .net. What would be the best way to keep them syncronized?

Proposed Email:
Mike and I are thinking it would be good to have two identical OccupySF sites, .org and .net. If one site is down people would have the other site to go to. What would be the easiest way to keep them synchronized? Is there a folder of files on the host that could be copied from one to the other whenever a change is made or on a periodic basis? What do you think?

Recruits: Brian Cotton (lives in Presidio of SF) may become a regular part timer at 101 and “Boston” (resides at Royal Hotel, SF) may become occasional participant.

Dos: Study of how Outreach and OSF may use DOS underway. Possible application in SF Participatory Democracy project in the Richmond district. Occupy groups may find useful for their input on legislation and issues to elected representatives.

Action Council Meeting: JohnSF attended to asses groups interest in outreach at 101 and OSF website for future funding request. Group was interested in outreach at 101 and would like report backs as well as info on website.

Occupy Forum: President of SFCC Board presented the status and history of schools accreditation. Decision by accreditation board and judges decision in City suit due this month. Possible alternative to video camera recording may be live Skype or Google Hangout of Forums. This would allow live questions from viewers.

Literature: Pirate Mike stated at AC meeting that occucard designer has ceased new designs.
Outreach will try to confirm and look into possibility of new topics. Check with AC for source of FRB flyers.

· Tab disappears.


Trifolds for “Occupy” and “Move Your Money”
· Use Wall St. flyer material
· Use current flyer for MYM.

Strategy Forums:
Why no strategy sessions in current schedule?
Ruthie will call a Forum meeting.

Friday, Mike has appointment.

contact groups
outreach mission statement

Re: God’s remarks about website.
Outreach is working to improve website but current priority is group usage.

General Policy and basis for posting-
Requests for posts to be kept at top of list – not fair to other posters.
Repeated posting to keep something at top of list – general policy of posting things once only.
Policy based on bulletin board model, all posts visible at all times.
Outreach agreed to re-position announcements to top in special cases – undefined.
Posts are for events and actions.
Calendar for regular/periodic Working Group committee meetings.

Flaky TAB behavior. Will call Robb for help.

Email Robb about faint, hard to read text.

New website banner up. Check with Robb.


Outreach will be at 101 on Friday as usual.

Review materials on hand for “Occupy” and “Move Your Money” flyer content.

Called Ryan to ask if he is ok with posting (1-201-388-2367). Said he’s out of town and will contact us on return.

Emailed Ruthie to ask if Environmental Justice Group can post. No answer yet.

Email Mike website address for “The 99%”.
