Occupy Democracy General Assembly for the Future

7 pm Parliament Square Friday 8 May

Let us demonstrate what democracy looks like with an assembly to discuss what we want from a future government.

Using human mic and consensus style hand signals let’s show people how we can get together and have a meeting where all voices can be heard. Give other people the tools to have general assemblies/discussions/meetings in their own communities. Livestreamers please come too.

Propose Discussion style GA. 7pm -8.30 pm

10 -15 mins, intro, hand signals, establish discussion groups

30 – 40 mins break out discussions 5- 10 people per group to come up with 3 key points

20 -40 mins feedback to whole meeting

Could start with this from OL initial statement
The current system is unsustainable. It is undemocratic and unjust. We need alternatives; this is where we work towards them.
And this from OD

Occupy Democracy is a social movement for a democracy free from corporate control that works for people and planet!
We believe that:
our democracy has been captured by corporations, banks and the wealthy,
our political system works in the interests of the 1% and not the 99%,
nobody voted for NHS privatisation, fracking, TTIP, the tripling of tuition fees, etc,
our parliament is a corrupted and unrepresentative institution
ordinary people deserve a fair say in the decisions that affect them,
our votes, hard won by previous generations, have little value today,
there is an alternative!
