KEEP CALM AND LINK NETWORKS, STRUGGLES AND STRIKES: BEYOND AGORA 99, FIRENZE 10+10, WSF TUNISIA….

This is an invitation to the workshop space we will have within the Agora 99 as individual activists who involved in various collectives, networks, etc. but see them selves as a part of the bigger global movement. We intended to reflect together flexibly on the last year and this year mobilizations and come up with several collateral ideas that can hopefully contribute to link existing networks, struggles, and  expand other regions, in our long global walk on the road to dignity. Please spread the word!

  • Description / Descripción
Descripción
El taller juntará a activistas que trabajan en el movimiento a nivel local, nacional e internacional para reflexionar sobre las experiencias de colaboración entre asambleas horizontales y redes dentro del movimiento, así como aqullos colecticos, grupos políticos o otras organizacones no horizontales de sindicatos y de la sociedad civil que han mostrado solidaridad con el movimiento. El objetivo es evaluar que ha funcionado y qué no, que riesgos se han corrido y que podemos hacer para syuperarlos; y propuestas para mejorar la colaboración entro del movimiento y hacia el exterior, en espacios transnacionales como Agora99, Firenze 10+10, WSF u otras ocasiones en el Camino a la Dignidad (o sea trabajando en acciones comunes más amplias y movilizaciones sobre la deuda, democracia y derechos, o huelgas regionales y globales, etc.) Los resultados se presentarán en la asamblea internacional en la forma de propuestas para comunicar al movimiento y a las redes, grupos y personas participantes en Firenze 10+10 y WSF.
Description
This workshop will bring together activists who are involved in the global movement and mobilizations at the local, national, and international levels in order to reflect upon the experiences of collaboration between horizontal assemblies and networks within the movement, as well as with less horizontal collectives, political groups, trade unions and networks of civil society  who showed solidarity with the movement. The objective is to evaluate what worked, what didn’t, what risks were involved and what can we do to overcome those risks; as well as proposals on what can be improved when collaborating amongst the networks within the movement and in order to develop a working methodology for colloborations with more vertically organised actors either at local and national levels, within transnational spaces like Agora 99, Firenze 10+10, WSF or other occasions on the Road to Dignity (i.e. working on a larger common actions and mobilizations on debt, democracy and rights, or regional or global strkes etc.). Outcomes of the workshop will be presented to the International Assembly in form of a proposal to communicate within the movement and with the networks, groups, individuals participating in Firenze 10+10 and WSF spaces.
  • Methodology / Metodología
Methodology
Part 1: Linking networks within the movement (90 min).
a. Participants will make short interventions max (3 min) focusing on the positive experiences:
What we had/have working really well to coordinate ourselves and communicate among local, national, regional and international networks.
b. Suggestion of things to improve: What would make the movement better, stronger, more flexible and efficient and expand to Africa and Asia.
Examples: Working on a file of successful tools, audio-visual materials (also to re-use), tactics,.. etc. from last year in order to build an online tool to pool them together, or strengthen communication channels (interoccupy, occupythecomms)?
 Part 2. Linking with networks outside the movement (60 min.)
a. Participants will make short interventions (max 3 min.) focusing on:
What worked / didn’t work in thier own experience in collaboration between horizontal assemblies and less horizontal collectives, political groups, and more vertical forms like trade unions and networks of civil society organizations at local, national, and / or international level for coordination or organization of solidarity / mobilization / action.
 Part 3 Working on a proposal (30 min.):
Based on the interventions in the first and second parts, we will identify what works and what can be done to develop truly democratic methodologies for collaboration (assembly of assemblies, liquid democracy, P2P democracy, ..etc.) between varying forms of collectivities.
Metodología
Parte 1: Uniendo redes dentro del movimiento (90 min.)
a. Intervenciones breves (max. 3 min) sobre experiencias positivas: lo que está o ha estado funcionando realmente bien para coordinar y comunicar entre redes locales, nacionales e internacionales.

Ejemplos: trabajar en un archivo de herramientas exitosas, material audiovisual, táticas, etc. del año pasado para crear una herramienta que los reúa, o fortalecer canales de comunicación (interoccupy, occupythecommons)?
 Parte 2: Uniones con organizaciones y redes de fuera del movimiento (60 min.)
a. los participantes harán intervenciones breves (max. 3 min.) sobre; que ha funcionado o funciona en la relación entre asambleas horizontales y organizaciones no horizontales como sindicatos y redes de sociedad civil a nivel local e internacional
Parte 3: trabajar sobre una propuesta.
Basada  en las intervenciones de la 1 y 2 parte identificaremos que está funcionando y qué se puede hacer para mejorar y desarrollar metodologías verdaderamente democráticas de colaboración (asambleas de asambleas, democracia líquida, democracia P2P, etc.) entre diversas formas de colectividades.
