Statement of Solidarity
(approved by the Occupy London General Assembly on the steps of S.Pauls on the 31st May 2013)
Occupy London stands in solidarity with all who refuse to accept the current unsustainable, unjust and undemocratic system. We want structural change towards authentic global equality.The world’s resources must go towards sustainable care-taking of people and planet, not towards corporate profits, the military, or the rich. We reject finance-funded politicians who mouth reform but instead derail democracy and enact policies and legislation which further increase inequality. We welcome all action which, in good faith, seeks redress of injustice through non-violence.
We send a message of solidarity to Occupy Turkey that is facing today a brutal repression.
We stand in solidarity with the following citizens and activists who will be in court in the next month:
- No Dash for Gas activists
- Bradley Manning
Finally the month of June sees a series of potent actions and events happening for which Occupy London would like to show full support. These include:
- Anti-fascist marches happening around the UK
- People United against Austerity
- OpBigBrother against a Surveillance Society
- Occupy Bilderberg and the Bilderberg Fringe Festival
- Radical London Conference
- The Spark Space
- Carnival Against Capitalism (StopG8)
- They Owe Us!
