Discussion: What is Occupy Barnet?
The group brainstormed what actions Occupy Barnet had done so far. What broad values we shared and what sort of entity we are. The result is as follows:
Occupy Barnet is a “Local Action Group”
We campaign on social issues such as squatting rights and homelessness. We take direct action, set up community centres and join in local and national protest action.
Broadly speaking we fight for social justice that we define as greater economic equality, environmental sustainability, direct democracy and individual empowerment.
