Rise up on May 12th, 2012 – We are the 99% #12m15m


On the 15th of October 2011 we took to the streets in over 1000 cities in 82 countries. We got organized and took the first steps on the road to dignity and global change. That was more than six months ago yet we continue to have to raise our voices to make politicians and bankers understand that they in no way represent us. We are united in our demands: the welfare of the 99% must be respected.

Governments only represent us if they follow the will of the vast majority, not just the privileged few.We are united, we are everywhere, we are where you least expect us.

We demand, firmly but without violence: social justice, wealth distribution and an ethic of commons. We condemn poverty, inequality, environmental devastation and corruption as tools of subjugation by the powerful on society.

We will not stop until we achieve our objectives: the 99% will take to the streets again and again until we have a say in the world in which we live. We want global change. Let’s turn the streets into the world’s biggest loudspeaker on the 12th of May.

Because we are the 99%, we are not owned by politicians and bankers. Take to the streets on May 12th!

Join us.

Updates from Portugal for #12m15m MAY12


There will be actions on the May12 in Porto, Coimbra, Santarém and Lisboa, and it seems that there are people in Évora already organizing something too. In Leiria, Braga, Aveiro, Faro and Vila Real is possible that someone or some group comes up with a demo, but I didn’t find any information yet.

There have been already two assemblies to prepare the May12 in Lisbon (in which several groups are participating and finally managing to work together!), one in Coimbra and another in Porto. This saturday there will be assemblies in Lisbon and Coimbra to (I hope) define the final plans (or almost) for the May12.

As soon as there are definitive information about the different protests I will let you know. For now, I leave here the link for the protest in Santarém: https://www.facebook.com/events/361011567273888/
GENERAL UPDATES FROM THE DIFFERENT PLACES
- Popular Assemblies
Besides of what is related to the Global May, there are regular popular assemblies in Porto (weekly), Coimbra (twice a week) and Lisbon (different groups gathering in different rhythms). In Lisbon there are also several neighbourhood assemblies.
- Protests and Other Actions
In this cities and in other cities, some actions happen but most of them are still small, except some actions that start happen which are related with the National Health System – this saturday there will be protests in several cities against the destruction of the National Health System.
- Occupied spaces
In Porto, there is a school that was abandoned more than 5 years ago. It was occupied last year (on April 10 it was the one-year anniversary) and it achieved amazing things: right now the community of the neighbourhood is participating in the activities of the occupation and also on the organization of everything, and the children play and receive free educational support in the school. This project is called “Es.Col.A. da Fontinha” (Es.Col.A. means Collectively Managed Space, Fontinha is the name of the neighbourhood) and the city hall is threatening to evict the space. It is possible that the eviction takes place already on this night.
This project is mobilizing many people on a national level because there is not really tradition of occupying abandoned places in Portugal. In the end of march there was a “Acampada Es.Col.A” in the place with some dozens of people of several portuguese cities and many more from Porto itself. If the eviction happens it is probable that people take the streets at a national level (I hope so!)
You can check the blog of the project at: http://escoladafontinha.blogspot.pt/
More occupations of abandoned buildings might happen in the near future in other cities, there are people working (or at least thinking) on that.
- Communitarian Gardens
I don’t know how exactly to call to this “spaces”, but let me explain: basically, its pieces of abandoned land occupied by activists and normal people to create places where everyone can cultivate to provide food for the communities. There is one that I know in Lisboa and at least one in Porto. In Coimbra very soon a public abandoned terrain will also be occupied with this goal.
In short, things are developing in a each day greater rhythm, although still not many people are involved. I would say that from several hundred to not much more than one thousand people are participating in these kind of dynamics in Portugal. But we hope that in May the movement will grow a lot and several acampadas will certainly happen with that goal.
Portugal is on for the May 12. Portugal is also struggling for another world!

This is a message for all committees of communication of Occupy/Occupii


We are the 99%.

The current distribution of economic resources is such that only the scarce minority escapes from poverty or daily uncertainty. Future generations are condemned to receive a poisoned heritage due to the enrionmental risks undertaken for the very few who profiteer. We demand social justice, we will not stand down in the defense of our rights. Our representatives have the obligation to be guided by our needs; they have to listen to us. Let’s turn the streets into the biggest loudspeaker on earth on May 12th.  Because we are the 99%, because we are not goods controlled by politicians and bankers. Let’s take the streets on May 12th.

 

As part of the Wgroup of Facilitation of the international meetings for action planning in May 2012 and at the same time as a member of the Action Alternatives and Solutions WG, I would like to share 4 info points:

Our next general meeting related to this subject will be held on Saturday March 17th at 19:00 UTC on the DRY’s mumble  http://mumble.democraciarealya.es/index.php?lang=en
You can access the minutes of the last meeting that took place last night through this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13k_-m4W3aZ3qrDVSZm53jrZxBpSPGcX…
All proposals presented so far by the assemblies have been organized in an schematic way and are available here : http://titanpad.com/proposalfor12and15May
NOTE: This pad will become a cute graveyard of excellent proposals if we neglect our responsibility to study them in our assemblies, that is the job of each one (as I understand it, and sorry if this sounded rough).3) Within this pad there are six or seven simple proposals to carry out in the three ****star days***  of the month of May.
On our last meeting we agreed to spread them, it is understood that it is responsibility of each person to carry out the task. Therefore I am doing my part!
- Return to camp in the squares the 12M or 15M
- Flashmob: standing still (or sitting down)  quietly for about 3 mins. in squares or public places –  in shopping centers, areas of bars, arenas, football stadiums and others but without obstructing the traffic.
-In contrast: Blockades of Public transport means and roads as a measure of pressure, stopping normal traffic
-Alternative to the demonstration 12M Global:  reappropriation of public space
- Actions of civil disobedience: do not pay the meter, not paying at the supermarket,  for water, gas or light, which is compatible with civil disobedience actions in the internet.
- Send mass emails/tweets individually with a single short sentence to a global target
- “MEMORY Action” To produce a documentary or other summaries (pamphlets, posters, collage) Recalling the achievements so far attained by each assembly> region> countryThis list is not an imposition, but only suggestions. They are proposals that came out of assemblies and are now returning to them as queries to satisfy transparency and horizontality.
We hold regular WG meetings (details below) where we can answer questions and receive comments / contributions.
An example of how they are working in Madrid: http://actasmadrid.tomalaplaza.net/?p=3078

If you have no experience using mumble, please show up at least one hour in advance, we all be happy to help you with the set up/config/ sound check, and give you also some advice on basic participation rules. This way we will not be interrupting the assembly.

Talking about the assembly: it would be great if we keep our interventions short, as we are almost a hundred, we all need to have the chance to speak and the GA can not last too long (2-3 hours tops?).

All the process can be improved as we keep working, please join our next facilitation meeting next week (wed 29F) if you can add improvements, or have any complaint. You are welcome also to join the team (we always welcome help at dinamization12m15m@gmail.com ).

See you all there!!
