The National Gathering Working Group 2013 invites you to participate in planning what the Global Conversation and Convergence during the Occupy (Inter)National Gathering will look like.
The vision so far:
The focus of NatGat2 is Local-->>Global. Much like the focus of Via22 and many other groups, we wish to give space and support to the needs and work of local communities, and bring them to the larger global community. Most of the problems each of us fights at home are the result of the same global forces effecting us all. The environment, economy, government repression, indigenous rights, human rightsxn--
What you can do:
Help develop this into an event that will serve the needs of the international community, building on networks already working towards transnational connectivity.
Continue to promote each others events and initiatives.
Collaborate in collective planning process.
