2. Global Assemblies at the Global Square – Passing the Charters on the Commons – Collecting Petitions [#1MayDay-12 May 2012]
3. Global Mobilisation – Referendums [#12M]
4. Global Swarm Strike for Transition towards Commons based p2p civilization [#15M]
5. Another World is Now – Universal Calendar Day 1 LightYear 1 [#1A]
Dear comrades, peers,
In 2011 we have achieved something never done before. We could upside down the course of things for the elite, after they created a major systemic crisis. The conversation elite wished to see has become impossible. Real Democracy has became a commons, a globally shared slogan and ideal for the %99. Arabian flame has spread towards the other continents and our anonymous, peer to peer, and global movement spread across the world. It is now 15M, ‘Take the Square’, Real Democracy, Now!, and Occupy everywhere.
In 2011 we identified the road to dignity and started to walk it. Now we know where it goes, where we are going, and how to get there.
We know that to make Real Democracy happen we have to replace current destructive and underdeveloped system with healthier, advanced, inspiring, and joyful ones. These two paths are going together. By now we are convinced that building alternative production, distribution, ownership and governance mechanisms bottom up is not the most realistic response to the crisis of capital but the only way we have.
Now it is time to mobilize globally for this end. In order to put immediate full stop on the austerity cuts, bail-outs, and attacks towards our natural, cultural and political commons, including water, air, land. labour, money, internet and other common values that were forcefully commercialized by the privileged. In order to say Another World, Now!
In order to harmonize our forces, ideas, visions, demands against the global capitalist system and to realize real democracy across the world, as GAIA peerage we call every individual to join the Occupy movement, 15M, Indignados in cyber and real spaces, organize and join positive non-violence, actions, demonstrations, hacks, strikes, mobilizations and start building on commons, p2p production systems, cooperatives and share what every you produce with your peers and with those who is in need, And use your influence and networks in order to link all progressive and revolutionary forces to each other.
Our proposal for a Global Strategy for a peer global revolution has been updated as below:
Towards May 2012, #1, #12, #15 Global Spring
1. Encouraging trade unions and other forces, movements, activists, hactivists to link their thinking, visioning, actions, strikes, hacks around “Programs of Commons” which would be promoted as the reliable base for future alternative systems; as well as immediate demands against the current system. Examples: decomodification of water, land, labour, money. [alternative global demands linked to the Commons would be immediate recognition of 4 hour work day, free and open internet, decommodification public services, full stop on carbon emission, direct access to policy making. These are some of these core demands we can hold on altogether yet obviously there are many others to protect the commons. Effort towards unification and accelerating the momentum in Europe and globally can be around these days > 24-25 February, 29 February, 8 March, 28-29 March, 31 March, 1 May, 12 May, 15 M, and other mobilisations and spaces in between. see: 2012 Road to Dignity]
2. On May 1st, 2012 we gather our assemblies link them to each other on the Global Square. Stand for 1st of May, organise/join/support the Mayday global strike, in alliance globally with the labor movement, all the working people, invite them to join us, listen our alternatives and support them in #12 an #15 Global mobilizations. We invite people’s assembles to write universal people’s laws/charters, on the Commons, Human Rights i.e by using wiki processes, collaborative tools will be embedded in the TGS. Start discussion on people’s charters in the assemblies and on the Global Square and issue these charters before the #12M. [linking new and existing territorial/de-territorial peoples’ assemblies to the rising and existing territorial/de-territorial work place and neighbourhood councils, transnationally on the TGS means creating the largest community of cause, and seeds of future mechanisms of people’s global governance]
3. On the #12th of May we mobilise and rise up for those alternatives (following a similar strategy developed by the Italian water justice movement [http://www.fame2012.org/index.php?id=40 ]): by utilizing the Global Square Project and using platforms like Avaaz we do petitions and collect hundreds of million of signatures to push these charter on local, national, and international polities, referendums.
4. Global Swarm-Strike #15M – Another World Now! Transition towards real alternatives, commons based p2p societies – The last stage is launching an open ended harmonised swarm attack in order to push the people’s p2p laws forward, transnationally and peacefully.
5. Global Universal Calendar – from June, 1 2012 on = Day 1, Year 1 [non-earth centric, non-western, non-Christian, one not taking Jesus’ b-day as 0, but a universe centered calender, time commons, taking the big-bang as Zero, etc.]
MAY the force be with us!
Hasta la siempre victoria!
