Call to Camp!

Close your eyes, hold each others hands and shout... shout louder... and take over the square...

  • Number Matters: reached "enough" number, police can just massacre or look at us helplessly.
  • The Square: enough people in the common space, and no street will be wide enough to kick us out.
  • Organization: assemblies, committees by topic, everyone with voice... at last
  • Diversity: it's a protest of youth, but not only... and no need of flags, of previous experience, of dogmas. We are together to express our dissent, to shout together that we can change how things are.
  • Solidarity: thousands inside the square, but far more outside that breath relieved seeing us. Daily donations of food, infrastructure and expressions of support...
  • Communication: emails, twitter, mobiles, social networks, word-to-mouth... we can despise tv: the word is ours.
  • Aims: we shouted out loud... and shocked ourselves by the strength of the shout. Now, strong, we can discuss and agree together the next steps, demands and changes needed. And shout them loud enough!

Tips & Strategies:

  • Find a local protest close to you
  • If there isn't any protest close by, organize it!
  • Once you are settled in your camp
    • Make sure to spread the news using social networks, and ask others to join
    • Build a webpage/blog to keep the world updated
    • Remember to use a free Creative Commons, Public Domain or anti-copyright notice for your online contents! That way we'll all be able to use them freely and expand our message.
    • You can organize the work in topic-focused workgroups such as Cleaning, Infrastructure, Spread, Respect (relations with neighbors). Still, you might prefer all decisions to be taken only by the general assembly.
    • Evicted? Don't panic!
      • For example, both Madrid and Barcelona were evicted by police forces
      • In all cases, the news of the eviction spreaded fast in internet, and many more supporters came to the rescue
