It looks to me that this is an early attempt to corrupt the fledgling movement with money and cointelpro agents. Here are some disconcerting posts from Portland Indymedia:
physical intimidation and potentially violent behavior at Portland GA
Why Not Do 99% Movement Protests Independently
And let's not forget how the "consensus police" pounced to silence 9-11 truth in San Diego:
Interrupted, booed, and screamed at for speaking the truth at Occupy San Diego
I think this movement has a real chance to create genuine change, but not with these "General Assembly" tactics and leaders!
