Why we want to meet
This is an open and horizontal effort to support transnational communications, networking and descion makingamong different global justice movements. The initiative came from activists of different parts of the world, involved in the social movements of the ‘Global Spring’ of 2011-12 (#Occupy, Indignados, #15M, #Yosoy132, #VIA22 and many others), and is open to all the people who wants to work for the defence of the integrity of human beings and the earth.
During our last meeting, we agreed on to complementary intensions for our next meetings :
1) networking between different communication initiatives
2) creating a new global platform (based on our collective knowledge, and interacting with to other websites). This meeting is open to everyone! We are specially hoping to see the developers of the different existing tools presenting their work, evaluating each others work critically and engage in a longterm process of networking and collaboration. All those interested in the promotion of this networking process between social movements are also really wecome! We feel there is an enormous potential to create an unbreakable, rich and powerful global communications network, taking previous efforts to the next level!
We are aware that this meeting is planned and announced at very short notice, so we will use this meeting also to collectively plan and prepare another meeting early 2013, to ensure that everyone interested can participate in the process.
