How to get involved
When a General or Public Assemblies are announced come and participate.
General Assemblies are gatherings of people committed to discussing issues and making decisions collectively and via consensus. This is still the official decision making body of Occupy London so please feel free to participate
Public Assemblies are usually called to promote a local campaign-issue in which decisions for that campaign alone are made.
General Assemblies are open to everyone and your input is truly valued and welcome. The summer of 2014 will have GA’s at the steps of St Pauls so don’t miss out!
JOIN A WORKING GROUP
Working groups are autonomous collections of people with real passion for positive change who work on a wide range of projects and topics. Feel to join any of the ones listed on the side-bar of this page, or come to some of our collective meetings – The Future of Occupy meetings are held monthly and the GA’s are currently held every 2-3 months.
Please check out the side bar on this page for working groups that are still active and please don’t hesitate to make
contact or to drop into a meeting.; It is people like you that make Occupy happen and grow.
FORM A WORKING GROUP/CAMPAIGN
If you are interested in forming a new working group/campaign with the Occupy name, then please
contact us for guidance through it. The guidance will involve an information exchange and if possible, encouraging you to come to our Future of Occupy collective meetings as well as the GA’s of course. The former meeting is smaller and more intimate and a great place for you to meet the more actively engaged members of Occupy.
Please do not be discouraged! The true spirit of Occupy involves working groups popping up everywhere. Strategically speaking it is altogether smarter if we all know about what each other is doing, so don’t be shy and say ‘hi’!
With the Occupy name comes the Occupy social media platforms which are still very popular. Facebook 1 + Facebook 2 + Occupy London TV + this website which still gets (Dec 2013) 400 hits a day with the occasional 2000 hit spurts. Often our Facebook posts are viewed by 8000 people within 12 hours.
Although we are passionate about social justice we do not always have the people power to form new groups/campaigns effectively (but it is always worth a try if you feel passionately about something). If you have a group of people (arbitrarily speaking 5 is a good number) already formed, it is an infinitely more positive way to approach us with a new campaign in mind.
Various free, Occupy events take place across London. Our events provide spaces to learn, share knowledge, develop skills and take action. So why not attend an event or even organise your own session or workshop. It is a great way to get to know people with the same passions as you. Events such as this.
