15O – Message from Syntagma to the World
RESOLUTION OF THE PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY OF SYNTAGMA SQUARE 14/10/2011
We express our solidarity towards all squares of the world that fight
against the cannibalistic financial system of economic globalization.
Our decision to participate to this global squares’ movement was not made in
order to support a global democracy, which can become totalitarian for local
Direct Democracy and its principles do not match with gigantism. Nowadays,
the deficit of Democracy we experience keeps increasing, exactly because of
this gigantism and under the pressure of the economic and political power,
the supranational organizations and international markets practice.
The cells of Direct Democracy are the Assemblies (in neighborhoods,
workplaces, and education establishments) where each person participates
being physically present and can co-design and take part in the decision
making and decision implementation process.
To avoid turning the system of Assemblies into bureaucratic:
· intermediation should be abolished
· decentralization should be more emphasized and pursued
· responsibilities should be transferred to the base &
· horizontal communication should be regularly aimed
A Direct Democratic society is constituted of small self-legislating
communities, lots of people/races and a great number of different cultures.
There is no doubt that the free humanity is a galaxy made of independent,
diverse and autonomous communities.
WE TAKE OUR LIFE INTO OUR OWN HANDS – DIRECT DEMOCRACY NOW
