::: TOP2: Q&A on the ISM platform and the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE :::
What is the ISM platform? -> http://ism-global.net/ism_en
Details on the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE: http://ism-global.net/discussion_global_education_strike_2012
::: TOP3: exploring common framework for the strike :::
[basis of discussion is the framework of the Global Weeks of Action for Education in November 2011: http://ism-global.net/coordinations_november2011#comment-5574]
- Why a common framework? It supports COMMUNICATION. A statement can describe the basic common ground for the global coordination. Symbols/Slogans enable everyone to visually link any activities with the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE when communicating on the local and to the global level.Of course all the elements of the framework should be treated as suggestions.
- Joint StatementCurrent question: Do we want to take this international joint statement [http://ism-global.net/international_joint_statement] supported by around 100 groups in 40 countries as a basis for the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE?
-> All groups, networks and assemblies are asked to analyse the international joint statement and give feedback if they disagree with any parts or miss any points. Feedback can be given thru the global ISM mailing list [https://lists.riseup.net/www/info/international_students_movement]:email@example.com and/or during the next chat meeting on June 8th
-> During the next chat meeting feedback will be collected and efforts to create a common statement for the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE continued
- SlogansParticipants brainstormed ideas for slogans as part of the common framework and decided to publish them inside this pad:http://pad.telecomix.org/pomsudob
-> All are asked to contribute suggestions for slogans to be used for the framework before the next chat meeting on June 8th
-> All identifying with the struggle are invited to the next chat meeting where participants will decide on a selection of slogans
::: TOP4: coordinating next steps :::
Things to discuss at the next chat meeting:
- choosing slogans as part of the common framework
- work on a statement as part of the common framework (put together feedback in connection with the international joint statement)
