What are you capable of? That question is what activists must use to find a way forward; the current global context of urgency calls for more than conventional tactics, what is needed is a vision for winning and transferring power to the people. This series of events invites activists, organizers, and artists to organize around a new tactic to build a viable progressive alternative for the world.
Imagine a movement that moves from country to country winning power and transferring sovereignty to the People directly by carrying out a unified agenda of radical democracy and environmental sustainability.
The seeds of such a movement have already begun sowing themselves; with a number of movement-parties springing up across the globe and now even winning power, such as Podemos in Spain, Pirate Party in Iceland, the Aam Aadmi Party in India, and the pan-European movement DiEM25. These examples provide a new model for us to build upon as activists to realize the social change we aspire to.
We propose to build a global movement-party with a unified agenda. On Oct 14th we’re calling on activists to hold ‘REBEL ELECTIONS’ in every major city to vote on a Unified Citizen’s Agenda and start a campaign to gain ballot access globally by gathering a million signatures in every country. Then, let’s create a map of wherever the nearest elections are taking place across the world and organize to win power as a global Alliance of the People.
In the same way that a big splash doesn’t make a tsunami, scattered actions don’t make a movement. It’s time we united to unleash the creative spirit of humanity by becoming the founders of a planetary People’s takeover.
We’re in the midst of the greatest change humanity has ever experienced.
What’s your part?
*We will be hosting these organizing events for these upcoming dates: September 7th, 13th, 20th, 27th
