Proposal For the General Assembly of Occupy Wall Street to endorse the Everything for Everyone

Festival planned in Seattle, Washington in the month of August.

 

The Everything for Everyone festival is meant to give a face for this new movement. It intends to

facilitate debate and cross-fertilization, for a mutual flourishing of various groups and ideologies

that have come together through Occupy. The Occupy movement has created a rupture of possibilities;

this festival aims to include those who have participated and those who have yet to participate

but are attracted to fundamentally changing society. To provide a space for the new culture,

the new philosophy, and new politics in it’s diversity and complexity to intermingle and grow

stronger. It aims to bring together art, music, workshops, philosophers, and encompassing participation from attendees.

 

A movement for changing everything is much more than actions and protest, as vital as those are.

It is a new politics, culture, and forms of organization; a new way of living. We want to contribute

to having a culture and way of life that is defined by “everything for everyone.”

 

Proposer:  Sebastian Chavez

    Is there going to be money involved?

    Seriously, I can’t imagine how this isn’t a good idea.

      @Direk, at the moment we are asking only for an endorsement, though it is likely that a request for funds will occur at some point. This endorsement does not imply that OWS must provide funding, however; it is mainly designed so that we can demonstrate support for the project when we promote it, both to potential attendees and to talent (performers, artists, speakers, etc.)

    FA to make it: “Solidarity” :) I like this idea, and will mention it to some of the other occupations, twinkles!
