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.

19-20 October – Follow the 48H of Strike in live from Syntagma Square #19ogr, #20ogr


Follow the 48H of strike in live from the new Channel of Syntagma Square
To catch the sound join Entasi FM

We participate to the 48 hour strike. We protest in Syntagma Square at 11:00.
Along with the workers and all of society we participate to the 48 hour strike against the bill that abolishes all labour rights.
Along with the workers being affected and the society being impoverished we react, we resist and we will not obey memorandums, troika, banks and that rotten political system.
The time has come for them to go!
We take our lives in our hands.
Direct Democracy NOW!

 

Greek unions said they would extend a planned general strike on 19 October to 48 hours as protests against sweeping austerity measures continued on Thursday, shutting down public transport in Athens and barring tourists from the Acropolis. With the beleaguered Socialist government of Prime Minister George Papandreou fighting to push new cuts through parliament, as demanded by international lenders, the unions said the Oct. 19 strike would be extended to the following day. The strike, which will shut down much of the country, will coincide with a vote on the austerity package on Oct. 20, three days before a European Union summit which leaders are hoping will reach a comprehensive solution to the crisis.”We want to overturn this bill which will destroy Greece and its people” said Ilias Iliopoulos, general-secretary of public sector union ADEDY, which is coordinating the strike with its private sector counterpart GSEE.

The two unions, which represent some 2.5 million members, or half the Greek workforce, have frequently been at odds over the crisis but have put aside differences for the moment to organise what is expected to be the biggest labour action in months.

The austerity bill, including savage pay and pension cuts and lay-offs in the traditionally protected public sector, passed a preliminary vote at committee stage on Thursday, despite misgivings from many in the ruling PASOK party.

I have no intention of voting against the bill, but no one can stop me criticising it” said PASOK deputy Leonidas Grigorakos. “What is taking place has no precedent, society is in turmoil, there is huge insecurity. We politicians must say where the country is heading.

On Thursday, Athens public transport was halted, the Acropolis, symbol of Greece, was closed to tourists for a second day and protesters ranging from Finance Ministry officials to cancer patients demonstrated against the cuts.

Protesters also occupied the printing offices of Greek power utility PPC , to try to disrupt a deeply unpopular property tax which will be collected through electricity bills. The national TV started the strike on Saturday 15 and the garbage trucks are in strike since three weeks now.
