Below is a proposal and a request for your endorsement for a global week of action from October 13th – 20th, 2012 dubbed #globalNOISE. This proposal has been written by an open and transparent coalition of international activists from Occupy, 15M and Indignados groups and individuals.
The #globalNOISE main-event will be a global “cacerolada” protest (bang on pots with sticks, or any other noisy action your assembly wishes to do) on the 13th of October (along probably with a rally wherever allowed).
Its main goal is to create a concrete global solidarity between all of our world’s movements. We think this can be achieved by doing the same thing on the same day all over the world – making a lot of noise!
On the other days of the week there will be several different actions in different countries. Please firstname.lastname@example.org
to get more information on various international actions or to suggest your ideas.
We do not propose a common “slogan” or a theme for the protest, your local group can protest against your most important issue. We will still be united worldwide through the global noise (the sound of post and pans). We encourage every interested person to get in touch with and collaborate on this action with their respective local movements who are commited to social change and the creation of a better world. It will be the right moment to take part in this, exposing the solutions for a better world and moving a step further from protest to creation.
We are contacting every Occupation, general assembly and local movement asking for support in the form of endorsing this global action and for participation on the day of the action #13O.
Please consider taking this proposal to your next general assembly meeting for endorsement by the group. If your Assembly does not meet on a regular basis or is on hiatus, we would encourage an assembly be called to consider the proposal.
Thank you so much for your consideration and please let us know how we can help obtain your endorsement.
Don’t forget to read the proposal below and bring it to your local group for endorsement!
