"AT the General Meeting at the Coop on April 28, 2015, during the presentation of the second item on the agenda regarding a boycott of Sodastream products, a group of Coop members got up from their seats, yelling at the presentation that it was false and must be stopped. These disrupting members demanded that images being projected as part of the presentation be taken down and exhorted other audience members to join them to stop the presentation from going forward. One member attempted to disconnect the power cord to the projector.....The Chair of the GM repeatedly asked the disruptive members to stop yelling and to return to their seats, reminding them that the appropriate time to voice disagreement with the presentation is during the time allotted for discussion immediately after the presentation when everyone would have a chance to make his or her voice heard. The Chair's repeated requests for order and instructions to return to seats had little or no effect and the disrupting members continued to yell angry demands and sometimes hateful epithets. Other Coop members, including members of the Board of Directors, also attempted to restore order reminding the disruptive members that what they were doing would be considered uncooperative conduct and could result in disciplinary action. Despite continual appeals for order and reminders that there would be time allotted to voice dissent immediately following the presentation, the disruption continued for approximately 45 minutes. During that time the GM was prevented from proceeding. Even after order was restored enough to allow the presentation to continue, it was only after the images were taken down (under protest by the presenters), and even then, the presenters were subject to continued heckling from the disruptive members. In sum, our investigation revealed that a handful of Coop members prevented an entire GM from engaging in COOP business for three-quarters of an hour. Despite the facts that (1) this presentation was a properly scheduled item on the agenda for the GM as approved by the Agenda Committee and (2) as with any agenda item, the rules of the Coop General Meetings allow for time after the presentation for those with opposing views to express themselves, the disrupting members effectively hijacked the proceedings of the April 28 GM, having decided that their individual beliefs in what was an appropriate presentation should trump the longstanding procedural rules of the Coop GM. Perhaps most notable was that the disruption was not a brief emotional outburst, but was a deliberate and sustained disruption for the purpose of preventing a presentation that had been validly scheduled according to the procedures of the Coop GM. Despite repeated calls by the variety of people for them to return to their seats, the disrupting members engaged in an unprecedented action of extremely uncooperative behavior by preventing a Coop GM from conducting its business for at least 45 minutes...
The DC (Disciplinary Committee) picked out 4 of those disrupting and they have been temporarily suspended and if they haven't responded to the charges against them by 5pm November 10, 2015, they were warned as follows:
"if you do not respond by this date, you will automatically be permanently resigned from the Coop. Pending a Hearing or Arbitration, the DC has imposed an immediate disciplinary suspension which affects your entire household. During this time, you and your household will not be able to enter the Coop for any reason, including shopping, nor may you enter as a guest of another Coop member. In addition you may not have other Coop members shop for you. Entering the Coop during this suspension is prohibited conduct under the Coop Disciplinary Procedures (Article II, Paragraph C.11). You are also barred from Coop activities such as attending the GM. (the underline was their emphasis)My comments:
