Re: Proxy Voting at AGM

Is anyone else feeling as pessimistic as I am about the AGM tonight? I just have a bad feeling that the Board, having harvested as many votes as they could out of the international members, are going to trump all the member resolutions tonight and all we will end up with is motion 1-4 passing.
