Priority / Mobilization Strategies / Protest

15h00   Introduction
15h05   Gunnar Sigurdsson (Open Civic Forum of Iceland)
15h25   Alex Theodorakis, Stella Papadaki, Labros Moustakis
(International/Communication Commission – Syntagma Place – Athens -
Greece)
15h45   Spanish Movement (Salamanca Camp – Catarina Santos)
The Salamanca Camp gave an introduction to the spanish situation of
unemployment, social cuts and other background to explain why is the
people rising up.
15h55   International Network Group Ontheroad  (International Commission -
Catalunya Place – Barcelona – Spain)
The International comission of Barcelona  was the first one created. It
was divided in 4 subcomisions and coordinated through a daily assembly, an
n-1 group and a mailing list. The richness of our commission comes from
the fact that the members come from many parts of the world and many
experiences, from Oaxaca to Sudan, with 4 Italians, 4 Greeks, 6 French, 2
portuguese, etc.
Information: was linking the visitors to the work area, informing,
anwering, recruiting and orienting new volunteers to keep tidy the working
area. The allowed us to recruit more than 200 translators in one week.
Organised talks and workshops.
Translations: The translated the official documents of the assembly, along
with other interesting texts in more than 50 languages. This alowed us to
integrate immigrants communities like pakistan or moroccans, and spread
the contents of the movement around the world. They also did
interpretation during conferences and video streams.
International press: They compiled an archive of press divided in three
folders: one with international artcles about the local situation, another
about international movilisations and another about France, available to
visitors in the information table and updated every day. They also
compiled a digital archive with all the links along with the communication
team.
International action: Created since the repression of the Paris camp, a
group of 20 people started to camp in front of the French consulate in
Barcelona to dennounce. They did actions to support Morroccans, Sirians
and Italians too.
International networks: They made the first reviews of mobilisations and
camps in other  cities and contacts. Programmed live connections during
the assemblies with other camps, like Coimbra, Atenas, Leipzig, Lyon, o
New York. They received the foreign indignants coming from France, US,
etc. Composed mainly by geeks, it made a big effort to create platforms
like mailing lists(like cominterm and now squares), or n-1 groups for
local and global groups, as now the Howto Camp, that shares methodologies
for assemblies, pacific resiststance or legal issues, or coordinate
international accions, websites, irc channels, spamming the
europarlamentaries about the Pact of the Euro, etc.
We were also helping with the page takethesquare.net and created
acampadabcninternacional.wordpress.com, a facebook (acampada bcn comision
internacional and the twitter acampadabcn_int which allowed us to keep
autonomy till now, regardless of fights, burnouts of the communication
team or internet access. It is important to have several official media in
case of divisions, manipulation or censorship.
We also did the first international callouts to take squares, trying to
transform the mobilisation in support of the spanish people into local
fights about local issues.
We also did a big international call out for the 19  of June against the
Pact of the Euro, which was a big success.
We also collaborated with the other international callouts, like the anti
banks action of the Greeks or the information about the Italian
referendum.
We would inform every night about the international situation in the
assembly, along with the live streams.
Finally, the members also participated in other commissions, as
Dinamisation of the assembly, law, communication, night programs, etc. And
stayed in the plaza catalunya until the eviction even when the movement
decided to leave before.
On the road: In the beggining of july we started travelling through the
different cities. Our goals were: compiling information of other cities,
like reports about the camps (number of campers, assistants to assemblies,
etc) , recopilation of experts  and formation needs, practices sharing,
creating new international call outs and actions, make the network
stronger through face to face meetings, and informing about Barcelona  as
well.
Brussels: intervention in the Parliament during an event organised by
Democracy international. Participation on Brussels assemblies, divided in
several neighborhoods.  We started to write a howtocamp in every city,
based on interviews with the local indignants and our own observations,
that is starting to be interlinked as well.

INTERNATIONAL MEETINGS
We agreed that it will be good to participate in the organisation of the
international meeting for make it everytime better than the precedent, we
created a group “International commissions” in N-1.cc with forums of
discussion about the organisation of the next steps and we have to create
an agenda.
We made a valorisation of the first day and it appears that:
- We have to be more objective in the presentations and informations we
give (it was sometime too much sentimental), we can create a free space
for this personal opinions.
- We have to divide in two days the presentations and the debates to
create a real space for the debates, better in an amphytheater, also it
missed preparation and the program suffered many changes and was not
confirmed till the day of the meeting.  We created a forum for that.
- We have to choose better places like squats or universities with
internet, printer, more time, coffee, food and place to sleep together.
- The translation was a bad idea and ate half of the meeting, we can try
to project a written translation or divide the room in languages areas.

- 16 of July in Paris (during the festival of the french indignantes 14-17
of July)
Call out from the international commission of Paris to translate and share

Appel à la participation internationale à Paris les Journées du 14 au 17
Juliet : atelier de coordination/discussion internationale le 16

En réponse à l’appel de plusieurs villes de France de faire un
rassemblement national le 14 juillet, l’AG parisienne s’est unie à la
initiative et a organisé quatre journées de rencontre du 14 jusqu’à le 17
juillet. Ces journées seront le premier rassemblement de gens de
différentes régions de France et vont permettre la réalisation de la
première assemblée populaire « inter-villes ».

L’AG parisienne n’a pas oublié la dimension internationale des
mobilisations et fait un appel à la participation internationale aux
journées. Les problèmes sont globaux et la révolution sera globale
également. Egyptiens et Brésiliens, Allemands, Belges, Espagnols o
Portugais, migrés, réfugiés ou sans-papiers, apatrides et apartisans, nous
voulons réfléchir tous ensemble à un monde où les personnes et la nature
priment sur les intérêts économiques. [Nous ne sommes pas de
marchandises]. Citoyens du monde, nous vous invitons à rejoindre Paris du
14 au 17 juillet pour prendre la place tous ensemble et affirmer ainsi
notre unité et notre détermination.

La journée du 16 sera spécialement consacré au partage des informations et
expériences en vue de promouvoir la coordination internationale et
l’élaboration d’un agenda commune. Nous avons appris du Caire, de
l’Islande, de Madrid, d’Athènes… Il est l’heure de prendre tous ensemble
la rue.

INTERNATIONAL ACTIONS

- March to Brussels
Proposition: Start a big europeen march from brussels with trajectories
studied to allow us to link and recruit a maximum of people in strategic
cities on the road to belgium, to realise a big recensement with questions
prepared, and organise a big action in Brussels the 17 of September with
two days of International meeting (18/19) to prepare the 15 of October.
Organization: A webpage is under construction: marchtobrussels.eu and we
created a groupe in N-1.cc for the organization, more information with
ben@indignez-vous.be

-Transition Day
Proposition: The proposal is to start an international campaign for
everybody to take their money out of the commercial banks and pass it to
ethic banks and credit cooperatives, or create new ones. It consist of a
big campaign to show what the traditional banks are doing with our money
but also promote the credit coops and the projects they finance.
People can do it without changing anything on the way they use their money
(debt cards, etc) they can have a bank account that will not contribute to
war and exploitation. So this action will have two fronts: take the money
out from the bankers elites, and also put more money available for
sustainable projects who will contribute to everybody and help to heal the
world. One day of the month would be the transition day, maybe the 10th or
any day because that would have the most impact on the market, every
month, so the people gets used to it and we will use the same
comunication.
Organization: Tati (from Barcelona) made a presentation some credit
cooperative and ethic banks like Triodos or the Catalan Integral
Cooperative http://cooperativa.ecoxarxes.cat started one year ago by Enric
Duran, and Laurent (from Namur) present the Belgium Eltys Cooperative.
We created the blog transitionday.wordpress.com who is looking for
collaboration to explain the problem of the banks and spread information
about ethic bank possibilities. Now we can start to archive the material
(video, audio, text…) and link similar projects like moveyourmoney.org
or banksters.com. We also created a group Transition Day in N-1.cc to
share ideas about the organization. We talked about organising conferences
and make anti-banksters actions during this transition days.

- Real Lisbon Treaty
Proposition: This last years things are changing. Finally we have the
possibility of communicating between places for free, spread information
and read witness reports from other countries. Now we have aquired the new
technologies that allow us to build our own tools to organise ourselves
without elites exploiting and abusing us. Stop the world, another war is
possible: the war to analfabetism, to hunger, to the IMF. A pacific war in
the acts but with ideas that will be violent to the minority we all
contribute to keep in power. A pacific force that can flood the structural
violence of the society.
We created an international network that permit our individual or
collective development, so let’s start: lets share the tools and projects
we like, let’s work for everybody to have access to food, housing, health,
information and education, let’s shorten the digital divide. Lets stop
trying to survive alone and start to work together, dedicating our energy
to find solutions and make them work, sharing them with others when they
are succesful. We don’t want to support this system anymore. If we decide
to stop it, we will stop it.
We don’t need them anymore, we just need to get out of the dictature of
the programmed obsolesence and the patent lobbies. Grassroots technology
and production adapted to local resources is already proven in many
isolated places, let’s replicate the succesfull ideas, help them spread.
We are all from the Earth and none of us has any rights over it’s
resources. Let’s stop talking and start building a sustainable,
autonomous, non-hierarchical, resilient infrastructure.
Today we have the posibility to work on an international consensus that
allow us to write an international declaration of principles, and a list
of global minimum demands. Or simply said, who we are and what we want.
For this big project, we are working on a metodology. This documents
should be worked out by two working groups ; one to join all the different
manifests in a consensual version, and another to compile all the demands
and try to validate them in all the assemblies of the movement. The
unapproved propositions can be worked on by new international work groups
till consensus has been reached. Assemblies can submit changes to already
agreed documents, but have to gather consensus of all the members for the
change.
Here the one of Barcelona
http://acampadabcninternacional.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/list-of-mininum-demands/
The proposition will be brought to the new real national assemblies of the
French indignants in Paris the 14th, of the Belgium ones in Brussels the
21st and of the Spanish ones in Madrid the 23rd of July, for a start. This
project will continue throughought the european summer to bring us to the
October 15th with more posibilities to demand an european referendum
during a european general strike along with the creation of an
international alternative assembly, in which proposals can be submitted
for approval.
Decisions: All the international commissions have to propose the idea in
their own countries, we created a blog reallisbontreaty.wordpress.org (we
have to join it with tomaelpoder.com) and a groupe in N-1.cc to star
working on the methodology, and also to create an international organism
of decision making inter-assemblies.

- October 15
We created a group in N-1.cc to share ideas and coordinate the actions, we
programed an international meeting in Brussels one month before (Septembre
18/19) for put all the actions in common, some people talk about an
European General Strike, a European Referendum, and an International Take
of Parliament to force the polititians and the medias to listen to us.

- Other
Sergie (from the Communication Commission of Barcelona) talked about
“Indignatil”, the distribution of a medical box with a flier of the 15M
and sweets of diferents colors.

Addendum: Report from Salamanca

SOCIAL-POLITICAL SITUATION IN SPAIN

The current situation in Spain is complicated. We have reached unemployment rates never before seen, with about 20% of the population, youth unemployment exceeds 35%, this being about 5 million unemployed! The policy of social cuts and job insecurity increases youth unemployment rate above 40% (the highest in Europe) makes the generation prepared in the history of Spain will live worse than their parents.
At the economic level should be stressed that the Spanish economy has been based on real estate, aggravating the economic dependence from 1998 following the approval of the Land Act and whose consequences are still suffering. This boom has led to the invasion and exploitation of coastal areas as well as the rural and natural areas, ignoring environmental laws.

Electoral Law: The electoral law in Spain divides the country into electoral regions where voting is not proportional or regional level or state level, where some provinces have more political power so that not respect the rule of “one person, one vote “.
Apart from this, the electoral lists are closed and can not choose the candidates so you’re forced to vote for a closed list. This is compounded by the inoperability of the chamber of territorial representation, the Senate.

The measures undertaken during the economic boom:

1. tax cuts in times of economic expansion, with Spain being one of the countries of the EU-15 with a lower tax burden. The problem with this measure is that it does not have filled state coffers and, once immersed in the crisis, we could not cope with the situation that we fell on top;
2. In this fiscal context, it is also deleted or modified to lower direct taxes – income tax, corporation tax, wealth tax, inheritance and gift tax, and at the same time, increased indirect taxes – VAT, Tax Hydrocarbons, snuff and alcohol -. Not to mention the taxes that have risen are taxes that fall on anyone without discrimination of income and those who have fallen are taxes that affect only the upper classes …
3. The reform became cheaper labor costs of dismissal under the slogan that this would encourage the permanent recruitment and decrease the part-time employment.Obviously still do not feel these benefits and now we have gone from 30/45 days per year worked (unfair dismissal) to 20 days per year worked.
4. Stalled the implementation of the Law Unit and removed the baby check.
5. Reduced salaries and wages of public workers. It is noteworthy that in this group there are not only employees, but workers with permanent contracts, temporary contracts and trainees. And while all these measures were carried out, no cuts were applied to any political or compensatory measures were applied for the pension-contribution-a single worker.
6. Approval of the 2015 University Plan, which among other things, proposes that the main decisions of the Spanish universities are no longer taken by a democratically elected rector team, but by a board of renowned experts and the business sector, among others . This what will be done is that access to university education is more elitist and more expensive. Companies become universities in setting aside the quality of education.
7. It also froze pensions, against the provisions of the Toledo Pact – an agreement by consensus among all political parties. Have not only made the minimum pension, but these are very low. € 531.
8. He took out a pension reform. This reform is the extension of the period of pension contributions, and uses a greater number of years for calculating the pension. When these years are blank is counted only half the minimum wage. This action primarily harms women to reconcile work and family life. Also, with the current reform of the early years of contributions lose weight for the latter, which hurts those quote racing groups with short and those entering the labor market later. On the other hand, in 2006 undertook a reform in which the bonuses were excluded from the pension contribution.
9. Recently approved reform of collective bargaining. This reform eliminates the action of trade unions in negotiating agreements. Being more exposed to the worker when negotiating with your company.

ORIGINS OF THE MOVEMENT

The movement in Spain came not from an organized manner. There were many groups that had long been requesting changes, and denouncing the political and economic situation (and real democracy, youth without a future, malaise, not votes, …), but all aspects of claiming an improvement of society with a common goal . For example, the concern and indignation of society by the political, economic and social welfare, and corruption of politicians, businessmen, bankers … In the helplessness of ordinary people.

The 15M was a demonstration by DRY, without political overtones in over 50 cities and whose motto was “We are not tools in the hands of politicians and bankers.” The main points of indignation of society were the political landscape, economic and social and corruption of politicians, businessmen, bankers … In the helplessness of ordinary people. Crisis, bipartisanship, bankers, corruption and unemployment.
Was massive public support, backed by social networks and Twitter, where people have been reporting in alternative media on traditional media which is not echoed.
Following this demonstration, 17 spontaneously began camping and take seats in an attempt to raise consciousness and restore the street as a place for meeting and socializing citizens.

Some media groups that attack the movement have been identified with “perroflautas,” young hippies who refuse to work or study. But this strategy has not influenced the widespread support of the society this movement.

OPERATION IN SALAMANCA

In acampadasalamanca operate through three work areas are communication, organization and outreach. These areas are divided into committees. The communication area is divided in the commission of internal and external communications, responsible for the dissemination of information to make internal and external.

The staging area is divided into the logistics committee in charge of the troops, Health assemblies, which regulates the operation of meetings and debate, devoted to deeper issues.

The extension area is split in the commission of projects which make contact with neighborhood associations, neighborhood committee that is responsible for spreading the movement throughout the city and the commission of evictions, which is responsible for making a database with affected people and create a support network for them.

We also have some working groups that cut across all the committees:
Sociocultural, hacklab, legal and environmental issues.

FUTURE

The main goal for the future of the movement is the extension to the neighborhoods and the creation of an organizational basis, in order to improve the flow of proposals and work, and therefore, awareness of the population and different age groups towhich has not yet been reached. The stabilization of the movement and work are the main bases for the future of the movement in Salamanca, because with this, we are confident that the rest will go back.

At the state level, coordination with other camping is another important future as to achieve a common good we must work together. Stress + Work = Future.

SALAMANCA APPROVED WORK PROPOSALS (3 MINIMUM INITIAL CONSENSUS)

In Salamanca, as in all cities in Spain where there is movement, met and coordinated a number of issues that we believe should be improved.
