We have had another successful meetup on the 26th of October. The meetup started with a general chat about time banking and other alternitives to our monetary system. At 7:30 we started the video “Its all about the money”. We watched the first part about the problems with our banking system followed by a short chat about Positive Money’s monetary reform. We then watched the solution part of the video and had a further chat on PM’s solutions among other topics.
Two of our supporters had a run in with some of the Occupiers in Belfast, on their way to the meetup. I was unaware that there were any Occupiers in Belfast, so after the meetup I called in to them for a few minutes. I introduced myself and had a short chat. I called back to Occupy Belfast the next day and brought with me the 3 different flyers.
I was thinking that it may be a good idea, getting a Positive Money banner made to display at the Occupy Belfast site across from St. Anne’s cathedral. So I am asking any Positive Money supporters in Northern Ireland for a small donation to help with the cost. If you can help with this or want to get involved please contact me by email or call me.
I work in the city centre and can meet anyone between 9-5 Monday through Friday, if you would like to donate for the cause. Otherwise a cheque can be sent to: Donald Dietrich, 91 Chichester st., Belfast, BT1 3JQ. I thank you very much in advance and look forward meeting up with you all again soon. Best of luck, Donald Dietrich
