<|> Excerpts from Minutes of SAYMA Representative Meeting #102,
April 6, 2002
<|> 10. Minute on Israel and Palestine
Sallie Prugh reported on the discussion of an ad hoc committee that
met to consider a possible SAYMA minute on the Israeli-Palestinian
situation. The committee reviewed minutes from West Knoxville and
Columbia Monthly Meetings and believes that they can fruitfully be
combined. The two minutes are attached as Appendix D.
The committee would like to continue its work to prepare a minute to
propose at yearly meeting and recommends placing the proposed minute
on the agenda at yearly meeting. Friends approved.
Friends discussed the need for clarity about the purpose, development
and audience for minutes of concern. Friends noted that it would be
valuable to discuss these issues at the monthly meeting level. Friends
welcomed the clerk's offer to write a newsletter article on the use
and significance of minutes of concern.
<|> 11. Minute on Population
A revised minute on population is ready for consideration at yearly
meeting 2002. The draft minute is attached as Appendix E. Friends
agreed to place the population minute on the yearly meeting agenda.
<|> 12. Death Penalty
Many monthly meetings have reported as requested on their actions on
the death penalty. Their minutes and accounts of work on the death
penalty were mailed to representatives in preparation for this meeting
and are attached to these minutes as Appendix F.
At yearly meeting 2001, a question arose of whether SAYMA has ever
passed a minute on the death penalty. The clerk reported that a
survey of the minutes of previous years has determined that SAYMA
has never approved a minute on the death penalty. Friends agreed
to put the creation of a committee to draft a minute on the death
penalty on the agenda for yearly meeting.
