Draft Proposal for Saturday 11/19/2011 General Assembly: Visions & Goals Working Group statement

Posted by & filed under Assemblies, Past Proposals.

(11/19/11) From the General Assembly of the Occupy Wall Street movement, To the People of the World we offer a preliminary Declaration of our Vision.

Our Vision is that of  [1] a free, democratic, and just society;  [2] where we, the people, come together and solve our problems by consensus;  [3] where people are encouraged to take personal responsibility and participate in decision making;  [4] where political and economic institutions work to benefit all, not just a privileged few;  [5] where we learn to live in harmony and embrace principles of toleration and respect for the differing views of others;  [6] where we secure the civil and human rights of all from infringement by tyrannical forces and unjust governments;  [7] where we provide full and free education to everyone, not merely to get jobs but to grow and flourish as human beings;  [8] where we value human needs over monetary gain, because when people lack security, education, or a standard of living adequate for their well being, effective democracy is impossible;  [9] where we work together to protect the global environment to ensure that future generations will have safe and clean air, water, and food supplies, and will be able to enjoy the beauty and bounty of nature that past generations have enjoyed.

    Edit: [2] where we, the people, come together and solve our problems by consensus; = [2] where we, the people of the United States, including those oppressed by the original occupations of their lands, those who descended from slaves illegally brought to these shores, those who sacrificed themselves in order to come to this country, those of all colors, shapes, sizes, genders and gender-identifications, young and old alike, come together and solve our problems by consensus;
