Draft Proposal for Tuesday 11/22 General Assembly: Movement for Justice in El Barrio

Posted by & filed under Assemblies, Past Proposals.

To the General Assembly of Occupy Wall St.: 

Receive greetings of solidarity from Movement for Justice in El Barrio, The Other Campaign New York:

We write to you with an important proposal that we would like placed on the agenda for this Tuesday’s General Assembly.

At the General Assembly of Nov. 3rd, after receiving the unanimous endorsement of several working groups, we received a public endorsement for our dialogue in El Barrio with Occupy Wall St.

We were pleased by the great showing of participants of OWS in our neighborhood last Monday. Thanks again to those who participated.

As we move forward, we want to continue building bridges and strengthening our ties in concrete ways. To that end, during our dialogue, we extended an invitation to OWS to join us at our New York Encuentro for Humanity and Against Neoliberalism, which will take place on December 4 in El Barrio. As some of you may know, an Encuentro is, among other things, a form of deep human exchange that serves as an alternative way of doing politics and building-movements.

In light of the fact that several working groups have already publicly endorsed this Encuentro, at this Tuesday’s General Assembly, we wish to propose the following:

– That the General Assembly of OWS publicly endorse, publicize, and attend our Encuentro, as a way to continue building our respective movements and shared struggles.

– That representatives from each Working Group and Caucus of OWS be encouraged to attend.

Thank you.
In solidarity,
Movement for Justice in El Barrio
