A suggestion for next Idle No More rallies on December 21st, 22nd, or 23rd (various cities):
We hold the rally, then move to a indoor gathering space to use a facilitated dialogue-process to invite those attending into a conversation on Who are we, and what will we do. I propose the first questions we can have are to find what the collective feel the needs are in our community, our purpose for this movement, our principles for this movement, and the people who will be the movement. That’s the first step.
Let’s take the momentum of the rally’s and begin a grassroots political, social, and cultural movement we all need in our communities. That involves commitment, events, idea sharing, planning, learning, working together, and becoming something special.
There is a litany of issues, but if we can gravitate to find the most common issues and tactics, we can create strength and more momentum to eventually create real direct change.
Please repost if you agree.
Let’s do this!
