NUVO received this
communication from the Occupy Indianapolis Legal Committee today:
As per proposal passed at
Occupy Indianapolis' General Assembly on November 8, 2011: "Deliberate
Misrepresentation of Occupy Indianapolis"
Occupy Indianapolis asserts
that the only line of communication with Occupy Indianapolis is through our
General Assembly and our committee meetings.
Deanna L. Erickson (aka .5,
Occupy Reason) does not represent Occupy Indianapolis in any way and has deliberately
entered into and/or initiated communication with press, government officials,
online community and private individuals claiming to represent Occupy
Indianapolis with absolutely no authorization from our General Assembly and is
not a member of any committee that represents Occupy Indianapolis.
-on November 17, 2011 Deanna L.
Erickson issued a statement to governor Mitch Daniels claiming to be affiliated
with Occupy Indianapolis and hand delivered it to his office without having
obtained prior approval from our GA. Occupy Indianapolis has not received a
copy of this letter nor were we aware that this was being done beforehand.
-Deanna L. Erickson claims to
have started a group called "Occupy Reason", which has no association
with Occupy Indianapolis and does not represent Occupy Indianapolis in any way.
-Deanna L. Erickson has made
statements to THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR, NUVO NEWS, and local TV channels 13, 11, 8
& 6, misrepresenting the opinions and views of Occupy Indianapolis without
consent or authorization.
-Deanna L. Erickson has
attempted to be incarcerated by state police regularly for issues Occupy
Indianapolis considers trivial and will not be provided with any legal help by
our counsel for the two arrests she has subjected herself to.
-Deanna L. Erickson maintains a
private live stream feed and represents this feed as the official live stream
for Occupy Indianapolis. Occupy Indianapolis has no official live stream at
Effective immediately Deanna L.
Erickson is banished from participation in and with Occupy Indianapolis. We
encourage others associated with the Global Occupy movement, the press, online
community and all supporters of Occupy Indianapolis to end all contact with her
as we have.
And in solidarity with Occupy
