Summary of the meeting on 02/11/2012 for 12M and 15M

0) Introduction of the facilitation team
1) When and where will next meetings take place (server rotation or in the same room)
2) Updating of the working groups
3) Proposals agreed upon by the working groups on February 4th
4) Current working groups:
- Actions in May
- Global Call
- Methodology of international meetings, horizontaly
5) Organization for the next meetings


Point 1: Proposal of rotation of the servers for the meetings

The initial arguement in favor of always using the same server is that it simplifies the access to meetings and is more simple.

The arguements in favor of rotating the servers is that it is more secure and more transparent. Furthermore, the rotational system allows more people access to the meetings in a more impromptu manner; introducing distinct servers can also increase international coordination.

It is specified that if there is to be a rotation of servers, it’s very important to make a good calendarization and define it well so that everyone knows where the meetings will take place.
A proposition is offered to facilitate the access in case of rotation: connecting always to a common DNS – which entails the purchase of a domain.
It is suggested to create a technical group to realize this.

It has been agreed that next week’s meeting will take place in the same room as it had been previously agreed on January 11th and 18th. For the other week, and with the advice of the technical team, the rotation of the servers will be as follows:
Occupytalk –> mumble.democraciarealya –> tomalaplaza –> cryptious
As new servers are opened (like the Russian one) they will be included on the list.

Point 2: Briefing from the work groups

There were not defined groups until now, so there are no updates from the groups in this meeting.

Point 3 : Work Groups

The groups proposed previously are :

  • Actions in May
  • Global call
  • Methodology of international meetings

The realization of few work groups are determined, incase of heavy work load forces will be divided, it is better to have few work groups with many people then many work groups and few people.

Given that there are many ideas,  a group for discussing the viability of new groups is determined. It is agreed the creation of a working group for communication issues. Together with the faciliation  group and the technical group proposed in the first issue (?)*** there are a total 7 groups that are distributed among the different rooms

The distribution of rooms stays the in this form:

ACCIONS —> Actions and alternatives
GLOBAL CALL —> 12M-15M Global
METHODOLOGY —> Brainstorming
COMUNICATION —> comunication Audio
Other groups —> round table
DYNAMISATION —-> happy room

With this the meeting is finalized.

Resumen de la reunión del 11/02/2012 para el 12M y 15M

0) Presentacion del equipo de dinamizacion.
1) Cuándo y donde serán las proximas reuniones (rotacion de server o misma sala).
2) Actualización de los grupos de trabajo.
3) Propuestas de grupos de trabajo consensuadas el 4 de febrero.
4) Grupos de trabajo actuales:

  • Acciones en mayo.
  • Global  call.
  • Metodología de las reuniones internacionales, horizontalitad.

5) Organizacion de los próximos encuentros


Punto 1: Propuesta de rotación de los servers de las reuniones

El argumento principal a favor de utilizar siempre el mismo server, es que se simplifica el acceso a la reunión ya que el acceso es mas sencillo.

Los argumentos a favor de rotar los sevidores es que es más seguro y más transparente. Además, la rotacion facilita que mas gente acceda a las reuniones de forma espontánea y al dar a conocer los distintos servidores puede aumentar la coordinación internacional.

Se especifica que si se hace rotacion de servers, es muy importante hacer una buena calendarizacion y difundirla bien para que todo el mundo sepa donde seran las reuniones
Se ofrece una propuesta para facilitar el acceso en caso de rotacion: conectarse siempre a un DNS común, que requiere la compra de un dominio.
Se propone la creación de un grupo técnico para realizar esa tarea.

Se consensua que la semana siguiente la reunión volvera a ser en la misma sala ya que se habia consensuado que 11 y 18 se harian en esta sala. Para la otra semana, y con los consejos del equipo tecnico, se empezaria la rotación de servidores que funcinará de la siguiente forma:
Occupytalk –> mumble.democraciarealya –> tomalaplaza
A medida que se vayan abriendo nuevos servers (como el de russia que se esta abriendo) se iran incluyendo en la lista.

It has been agreed that next week’s meeting will take place in the same room as it had been previously agreed on January 11th and 18th. For the other week, and with the advice of the technical team, the rotation of the servers will be as follows:
Occupytalk –> mumble.democraciarealya –> tomalaplaza
As new servers are opened (like the Russian one) they will be included on the list.

Punto 2: Actualizaciones de grupos de trabajo

There were not defined groups until now, so there are no updates from the groups in this meeting.
los grupos no estaban definidos, asi que de momento no hay actualizaciones de grupos de trabajo

Punto 3: Grupos de Trabajo

Los grupos propuestos previamente son:
The groups proposed previously are :

  • Acciones en mayo.
  • Actions in may
  • Llamada Global

Se determina la realización de pocos grupos de trabajo, ya que en caso de tener muchos dividimos fuerzas, es mejor tener pocos grupos con mucha gente a muchos grupos con poca gente.

Dado que existen muchas ideas, se determina crear un grupo para discutir la viabilidad de nuevos grupos. Se consensua tambien la formacion de un grupo de comunicación.
Añadiendo el grupo de dinamizacion y el grupo técnico propuesto en el primer punto quedan un total de 7 grupos que se ditribuyen en diversas salas para empezar a trabajar.

La distribución de salas queda de la siguiente forma:

ACCIONS —> Actions and alternatives
GLOBAL CALL —> 12M-15M Global
METHODOLOGY —> Brainstorming
COMUNICATION —> comunication Audio
Other groups —> round table
DYNAMISATION —-> happy room

Con esto se da por finalizada la reunión.

In solidarity with Greek People, today, we are meeting at 20pm in front of the Greek embassy. 24, Doctor Arce St. (between <M> República Argentina, Cruz del Rayo and Concha Espina).The Greek Parliament has further intensified the austerity measures. A punishment that once again falls on Greek people and benefits the Troika and other speculators.Meanwhile, in the streets, greek people refuse to be subdued and fight fiercely against financial dictatorship that has been imposed. Athens and other cities in Greece have been rioting for the last eight hours. By adopting these austerity measures, poverty will be increased and extended among greek people; and they will be burned by economy for decadesUntil when are we going to stay watching passively. How much more must screws be tighten in this slow torture. Greece we are with you!Today, at 20 pm in front of the Embassy of Greece¡No tenemos miedo!Otras convocatorias

En solidaridad con el pueblo griego, mañana lunes nos concentraremos a  las 20h frente a la embajada griega. C/ Doctor Arce, 24 (entre los  <M> de República Argentina, Cruz del Rayo y Concha Espina).
El  Parlamento griego ha recrudecido aún más las medidas de austeridad, que  castigan una vez más a l@s grieg@s en beneficio de la troika y demás  especuladores.

Mientras tanto, en las calles, la ciudadanía se niega a ser sometida  y lucha ferozmente contra la dictadura financiera,que les ha sido impuesta. Ya van ocho horas seguidas de disturbios en Atenas y otras ciudades de Grecia. La aprobación de estas nuevas medidas de austeridad no hará más que incrementar la pobreza del pueblo, y lastrarán la economía durante décadas.
Hasta cuando nos vamos a quedar mirando pasivamente. Cuanto mas deben de apretarnos las clavijas, en esta tortura a cámara lenta.
¡Grecia estamos contigo!
¡No tenemos miedo!
En solidarité avec le peuple grec, nous nous rassemblerons le lundi 13 février, à 20h00, face aux ambassades et consulats grecs en Espagne. 
Le parlement grec a approuvé les nouvelles mesures d’austérité qui feront souffrir une fois de plus la population grecque, au plus grand bénéfice de la ‘troika’ et des spéculateurs.
Dans la rue, les citoyens refusent de se soumettre et luttent contre la dictature financière, pendant plus de 8 heures à Athènes et dans plusieurs villes de Grèce.
Jusqu’à quand allons nous rester à regarder sans rien faire. De combien encore devra être serré cette vis , comme une lente torture.
Grèce nous sommes avec toi!
Demain, nous sommes à 20 h en face de l’ambassade de Grèce.

In solidarietà con il popolo greco, ci troveremo Lunedi mattina alle 20h di fronte all’ambasciata greca. C / Doctor Arce, 24 (tra <M> Argentina, Ray Cross e Concha Espina).
Il Parlamento greco ha approvato ulteriori misure di austerità, che puniscono ancora una volta il popolo greco, in beneficio della ‘troika’ ed altri speculatori.
Nel frattempo, nelle strade, la cittadinanza rifiuta il fatto di essere sottomessa e combatte ferocemente contro la dittatura finanziaria ad essa imposta. Gli scontri ad Atene sono durati otto ore di seguito, anche in altre città della Grecia. L’adozione di queste nuove misure di austerità non farà più che incrementare la povertà del popolo greco, con il conseguente peggioramento della economia per decenni.
Fino a quando stiamo disposti a guardare passivamente. Quanto più sarà ancora necessario stringerci in questa lenta tortura. Grecia siamo vicini a te!
Oggi, alle 20h davanti all’ambasciata della Grecia.
¡No tenemos miedo!.
