Come to Alternative Banking Meetings!

The Alternative Banking Working Group of Occupy meets every Sunday from 3-5pm at Columbia University, in Room 402/403 of the International Affairs Building at the corner of 118th and Amsterdam Avenue.

We are open to everyone. If you are press, please identify yourself before the meeting begins. Also, we don’t allow any recording devices at the meetings, and if you want to quote someone you need their explicit permission for each quote.

We usually send out topics on Saturday and ask for more topics. To get on the list please email and request to be added to the email list for Alt Banking.

The format of the meetings are as follows:

  1. We list the topics and discuss them briefly to give people an idea of what they are.
  2. We vote for the topics to see who wants to discuss what.
  3. The top 4 topics (up to 6) are chosen, and we have two rounds of discussions in which people are free to choose whichever topic they choose.
  4. People take minutes and when the groups are large enough someone takes stack as well.
  5. After the two rounds, we have a quick summary of the discussions.
  6. The minutes are posted here after the meeting.

See you there!

And not by some fly-by-night law firm either, but by a nationally recognized law firm with 250 years experience. ‘Spire Law Group, LLP…is a national law firm…whose backgrounds include the historical provision of legal services to some of the world’s largest international corporations, as well as to some of the Country’s most important governmental and regulatory agencies.’ However, in this case: ‘Spire Law Group, LLP’s national home owners’ lawsuit, pending in the venue where the ‘Banksters’ control their $43 trillion racketeering scheme (New York) – known as the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History…’

  2. Hi, my name is Sebastien and I’m a journalist at Columbia University. I am trying to get a hold of Steven Behar for an article I’m preparing. I was wondering if you could help me get in touch with him by email or phone. Steven is a member of the Alternative Banking Working Group.

    Thank you!
