What are the main objectives of VIA22’s monthly process?
-To insist on the notion that our demonstrations (marches and rallies) should start turning into open places where we can share knowledge and build concrete alternatives within our communities(by organizing workshops, debates, classes, playgrounds, etc).
-To examine and promote concrete alternatives to a system that deepens inequalities at every level.
-To insist on the necessity of communication and coordination between the local and the global spaces and build a database of knowledge and alternatives for a better world.
-To connect and unite social movements and civil society  for the development of global consciousness that respects human dignity and our  planet’s ecosystem.
-To relay initiatives taken by the Indignados, Occupy,  #Yosoy132, the Y’en a marre collective, Social Forums all around the world and  all other initiatives that affirm the necessity of the multiplication of  horizontal, open and inclusive spaces.
-To put in question globally the destructive order of  things imposed by the hegemony of global political-economic system and its  impact on education, health, access to water, security, freedom of expression  and association, etc.
