Peoples Movement Assembly 'a sure way to grow social movement!!!

The Peoples Movement Assembly: (also check:

What is it?

It is a methodology in which to bring people together in a 'convergence' of forces of the social movements fighting the frontline struggles for systemic social change.

It is a portal to bring people into the social movement into an 'open space' where collective work and consensus decisions or/and agreements are agreed upon

It is the open space where all voices are heard and become part of the whole; creating integration of voices and forces and organizations

It is a space for decisions, agreements and ACTION

A space to identify the  problems we face collectively as a social movement

To provide and advance SOLUTIONS (dismantle the old system and build alternatives for a new system)

To have a open space to collectively plan ACTIONS
