People’s Parliament: The First Sitting
The Occupied Cities of Aotearoa invite you to join us at 5.30pm this Friday, November11th, to participate in real democracy at the first sitting of the People’s Parliament!
The People’s Parliament is founded on respect for all people and equality for all voices. Together we can discuss the problems that face us locally and globally, and together we can generate solutions accessible to everyone.
We believe that the global problems we face require a global redesign, which can only be achieved by the collaboration, cooperation and creativity of all the world’s people.
This redesign is happening now in 2,500 Occupied Cities around the world, and we need input from the people of Aotearoa. It is the people, not politicians, who are best qualified to create sustainable, healthy, happy communities.
Together we can shape a future that is environmentally, socially and economically just for everyone.
Come and add your piece to the puzzle; Join us 5.30pm this Friday 11/11/11
