There were tons of egregious ways that the chair of the General Meeting conducted the supermajority vote. Even she voiced her opinion that the changes that Rosenfeld proposed were changes to the bylaws, which if they are require a 2/3 vote to be passed and must be publicized to the members. She only heard one motion to table the vote and refused to listen to any others. She also refused to allow any amendments to the proposal. One member complained that when she tried to pre-register to attend the GM for work credit, she was told that they stopped taking any more work credits but that she could still attend. I’m sure that turned away many members who wanted to vote but were given the mixed message that they would not be able to attend the GM. One of the chair members also challenged the undemocratic nature of this vote and was shut down while Gen’l Coordinator Joe Holtz had far too much time to express his position in advocating for this supermajority vote–he’s abused his position as a co-founder many times and has gone out of his way to block a democratic process for voting on BDS or any Israeli boycotts. We have most definitely entered an era of McCarthyism at the Food Coop and beyond and the people on the hit list are pro-BDS supporters.
