Occupy Strategic Planning Working Group Mission Statement
DRAFT ONLY!!! A few people have been asked to draft this, please check email@example.com before changing it. If you want to help, cool...these folks just want a chance to work on it themselves for a few days...
OK folks...this is from the notes. Have at it.
1. The current mission of the InterOccupy Strategic Planning Working Group (IOSPWG) is to:
(a.) differentiate between a concrete goal -- legislation to end corporate personhood -- and an ideal -- we want a world without poverty. (b.) collect concrete objectives that could be used to implement a *Vision for A Democratic Future such as that developed during the first Occupy National Gathering, 2012. http://interoccupy.net/blog/natgat-vision-results/ ; and
2. Ideas/ideals (that are "not concrete" objectives) will be listed, but not become part of the next phase of the process.
3. The next phase of the strategic planning process that this group will undertake will emerge from the results of this gathering concrete objectives phase.
Refer to Franklin Delano Roosevelt's 1944 State of the Union address where he advocated a second U.S. Bill of Rights, a U.S. Economic Bill of Rights. Search FDR 1944 State of the Union. This would be the essence of our economic justice goals.
