Principles of Solidarity:
OWS occupation space date extension and breakout groups
On 11.8.11 the GA approved the solidarity group’s 48 hr. stop gap Emergency Proposal. On 11.10 the GA extended the proposal another 72 hours. The proposal states that “the occupiers in a space require” by the community must consent in order to be removed or consent regarding a shared usage of space.”
Solidarity is involved with other working groups on this issue including Town Planning. The intent is to formulate a precise protocol regarding the balancing of shared and individual living space OWS. While it is intended to formulate this protocol on 11.13.11 the stop gap’s expiry, such may not be possible due to the complexity of the issue and the very short amount of time available. Therefore, solidarity proposes the following to the GA: Regarding the expiry of the extended stop-gap, Emergency Proposal about the shared and individual living usages of space at OWS, request is made to extend the expiry date of (11.13.11) of such proposal to Tuesday, 11.15.11.
Additionally, break-out groups are requested with the intent of gathering the GA’s ideas on how OWS can appropriately balance shared and individual usages of space so to keep solidarity within the movement…or if by Sunday, 11.13.11, the exact wording for more permanent guidelines can be rules can be agreed upon with the Town Planning working group, to read that proposal at the GA.
