PROTEST DAM AND MARCH TO LEIDSEPLEIN - Video + GENERAL ASSEMBLY Minutes
PEOPLES' ASSEMBLY ON LEIDSEPLEIN:
Everyone was invited to join this assembly. All people were explained the way of communicating during this and translation was offered by volunteers. These were the points of address:
[ 1 - PARTY AT AMSTERDAM AROUND FIRST WEEKEND JULY ]
In previous Assemblies, we came to an agreement to organize a party in which we find space to screen movies, provide information for the public and find a way of connecting to other struggles, groups and peoples.
a) we need a location
There are a few options, just like Schijnheilig and 301. Suggestion is that Adriana is the central coordination. (OK) We do stay open for all
free/cheap suggestions. Anyone wanting to join this party commission, contact Adriana: [firstname.lastname@example.org - FaceBook: Adriana v Metropole]
b) funding (money)
We want to have a voluntary collection to pay for this. This also depends on more information of the location. Adrianna coordinates.
c) start now
We need to start now with the organization. No more delays. We can use all help present.
Does anybody have a beamer and laptop?
d) one party commission
Anyone wanting to join this party commission, contact Adriana: [email@example.com - FaceBook: Adriana v Metropole]
Adrianna is central coordination.
e) contact the Greeks
We need to contact the Greek people too, to finetune this organization.
prive.particlestudios.net is their forum.
At the Oosterpark ROOTS FESTIVAL, we want to be ready with flyers and publicity about this party, so we can invite all.
Ibrahim (central coordination flyers/publicity) coordinates. Contacting Ibrahim could be useful!
[ 2 - ROOTS FESTIVAL OOSTERPARK 26 JUNE ]
Ibrahim suggests move from Dam to Oosterpark on June 26. Adopted.
a) interesting festival - right audience
It is a free and non-politcal multicultural festival, with 100.000 people attending.
We meet at 12:00 noon at the entrance of the hospital.
b) information stand
We want a stand/table/flyers/representatives which explains and talks to the public. We want to talk about the movement, the Europact and the party
the next week up. Ibrahim cares for flyers, a voluntary money collection was done. Ibrahim coordinates information stand. [[note: Ibrahim also contacts
with Adrianna for the party information?]]. The information on dutchrevolution.blogspot.com is used for the flyer.
c) other flyers/copies welcome/help
Everyone in the possibility to copy or print cheap or for free. Feel free to do so. Thanks.
d) one information commission
Ibrahim coordinates. All welcome.
To example of everywhere in Europe, we want to kick off that night with the first Dutch Acampada (CAMP). Bring your tents. Assemblies to be
expected in which we decide to start camping or not. We will socialize, get to know each other. Everyone welcome.
This website will keep providing up-to-date information.
[ 3 - POLICE VIOLENCE ]
Everywhere in Europe, we find evidence of violent police.
a) film, take pictures, shoot videos, share all over
For the public opinion and for our own safety, it is wise that we document everything that happens. Videos are solid proof. Videos of actions also kep
the fire burning with our colleagues internationally. Call is to share, copy, and post as much as possible. Keep connecting to all movements in Europe.
Keep each other (all over the world) alive in spirit. Visibility is good.
b) comission Howto: talk to police.
A commission which collects information on how to approach police might be interesting. Dutch-speaking people could perhaps also gain more trust.
Idea is to organize a steward movement that has main goal: 'that no poeple get hurt'. Suggestion to have this action by action organized. (adopted.)
[note: who is focussing on this for June 26?]. Let us form a group. Also perhaps an online groups so we can share all over Europe.
[ 4 - BRUSSELS - 22 JUNE - GREAT PEOPLES' ASSEMBLY]
At the European government buildings, there is a protest on 22 JUNE. We want to go with a delegation.
a) protest and great Peoples' Assembly.
Schuman square à Bruxelles | 22 june 18:00
The Belgians have a succesful CAMP in Brussels. After the protest in, we want to join the Brussel CAMP and sleep over. We want to exchange and
listen and learn about their experiences. This is useful when we start up the first Dutch CAMP the 26th.
Everyone is welcome to join. We are still looking for cheap transportation. All suggestions welcome.
Central coordination: Louise (firstname.lastname@example.org)
[ 5 - EVERY DAY MEETING AT THE DAM]
Every day is protest meeting at the DAM. 8pm.
