After a 10 minute break… we are BAAAAACCCCKKK!!
Maureen Sullivan went over the rules. We also have a revised agenda.
We have a quorum (We have to have at least 75 members in order to conduct business at this meeting)
We are standing in tribute to those colleagues and supporters who have died. I will list them later.
We also have 2 tributes to CALA (Chinese American Librarians Association) and Abba Alahdi.
First Resolution: (I’ll post) “Resolution on Divestment of Holdings in Fossil Fuel Companies and Libraries’ Role in a Peaceful Transition to a Fossil-Free Economy” … now the discussion begins (for and against)… It’s a very heated issue…. Members spoke for and against and made cogent arguments on both sides. The motion failed and will not move on to Council. 46-44.
Now… on to a resolution in support of Whistleblower Edward Snowden….. (posting later): Members are standing to speak for and against… motion carries and will be sent to council for consideration…
We are now adjourned until tomorrow morning!
