November 12, 2011: Occupy Sacramento General Assembly in Cesar Chavez Plaza, across from the old City Hall.

11-12- 2011: Two options for conducting The People's Business. The Old City Hall (brightly lit building) was replaced a few years ago by a more splendid edifice in back and that is where the city's business is conducted Monday through Friday using traditional rules of order. Across the street in Cesar Chavez Plaza, Occupiers have met almost every evening since October 6 to create bylaws and a process for deciding what to do and how to do it. The Occupy proceedings are a lesson in democracy and patience - nothing is decided without intensive discussion by people who care strongly about the outcome.
