(en) US, Occupy Boston's Anarchist Alliance calls for neighborhood-based general assemblies;

Date Wed, 14 Dec 2011 14:52:26 +0200


Occupy Boston held its first post-Dewey General Assembly on Saturday evening at the Boston Common bandstand. At Saturday's GA, a member of the Anarchist Alliance of Occupy Boston made a statement calling for neighborhood-based general assemblies throughout the winter. ---- "We are proposing the creation of neighborhood-based Occupy General Assemblies, and participation in those that already exist, such as Occupy JP, Somerville, the Hood, El Barrio," he said. "These assemblies will seek to connect and support existing community groups and will draw in local supporters long time and new, thereby spreading the ideas and activities of the Occupy movement." --- The most recent local neighborhood-based Occupy initiative is Occupy Allston-Brighton, which surfaced earlier this week and holds its first General Assembly on Thursday evening. The group is still seeking an indoor space for the GA.

"We will strive to federate these groups and hold summits over the coming months," continued the Anarchist Alliance member. "This initiative will build power over the winter with the intention of allowing us to regroup as a stronger and more united force in the spring against the 1 %. We believe this should be the focus of the Occupy movements over the winter."

"If you would like to be part of this initiative, take leadership in your own community, start it," he said. "Work with existing neighborhood assemblies. We are all leaders. We have no rulers. All power to the people."
