This draft document was written by Frank, but inspired by many. At the Nov. 6 meeting, Frank said (quoting from the posted minutes):
“This proposal is a distillation from the GA this is not me going off on my own. What I am trying to propose is something the GA can consent upon:”
It’s still a draft, but I’m posting it here so that all can read it and post comments. As in the printed copies distributed at the meeting, the individual points are numbered. These numbers are meant to make it easier for people to comment – they will be removed when they have served their purpose.
The version below is an update provided by Frank – I’m posting it today, 11/10/11. You should be able to see the original by clicking on “history”. The differences are relatively small, but quite significant. Also, my apologies to Frank for calling it a preamble – it’s designed to serve as a comprehensive vision statement.
From the General Assembly of the Occupy Wall Street movement, To the People of the World we offer a Declaration of our Vision and Goals.
Our VISION is that of  a free, democratic, and just society,  where we, the people, come together and solve our problems by consensus;  where people are encouraged to take personal responsibility and play an active role in decision making;  where political and economic institutions work to benefit all, not just a privileged few;  where we learn to live in harmony and embrace principles of toleration and respect for the differing views of others;  where we secure the civil and human rights of all from infringement by tyrannical forces and unjust governments;  where we provide full and free education to everyone, not merely to get jobs but to grow and flourish as human beings;  where we value human needs over monetary gain;  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.
We propose the following GOALS in furtherance of our Vision: [insert goals]
(Here should be added, in whatever form they finally take, the goals which were presented to the GA)
