When some media (and OPs) describe the Occupy protests as "disorganized" they have not been watching. http://occupyseattle.org/resource/general-assembly-guidelines-hand-signals This is an demonstration of "Human Mic" during General Assembly. People repeat speakers' words in a chant so everyone can hear. New speakers start with "mic check" from the protesters. People who want to speak come to the front to "stack" and wait in line. There are hand signs for the group to respond to the speakers- approval, disapproval, points of order, "wrap it up", and "off topic". The protesters can control rants, derails, and outright craziness. They just stop repeating whats said. When the "human mic" stops broadcasting the speaker is silenced by the listeners. Other speakers can make their points at non -assembly time. Facilitators are "mods" and not leaders. This is Live Stream http://www.livestream.com/owsoccupyseattle All General Assemblies and news shown here. When the group not active they show related videos.
