The Principles of Solidarity working group does not have permission to make the advanced draft of the Principles of Solidarity to be online.  The GA has been very sensitive about having such a document circulating in that form given the nature of the topic.  As for demands, there are groups on the group each with their own thoughts.  Making a group via google will not be as helpful as connecting with the different groups.  In the discussion that occurred at the GA regarding demands, the matter was left with the groups that made a joint proposal to go back to the drawing board and come up with a process, to determine whether there should be any any  demands at all.

I do not have an answer about the group that meets about demands and points of solidarity, and that is a problem because we have many groups that are not connected with each other, and it is not clear that the documents that we are discussing are made available online. I have not seen the online version of the principles of solidarity. Perhaps it is posted somewhere, or was submitted to the mail list and I missed it.
I think that those of you interested in the economical aspects should setup a team ASAP.

I'd love to. When and where is the group that is working on demands and points of solidarity meeting?

We should be able to modify our documents, and it would be wise to do so at this early stage. Indeed the points that you are raising are very important. I urge you to team with those interested and elaborate a modification that addresses the issues raised.

I'm very glad that we have this, and overall it's very good, but it's missing one big thing: there is no mention of how Wall Street created the economic crisis that destroyed millions of jobs, and how Wall Street was bailed out of its crisis by cutting vital public services! Any chance we can get that added? I realize that this list is not meant to include every grievance, but this is incredibly important and central to the damage done by Wall Street specifically, as opposed to capitalism as a whole. Frankly, we would not be occupying Liberty Park now if it weren't for the economic crisis - that's what set all this in motion. To not include it here seems like a major omission, and may make it harder to do outreach to the public sector unions that have started supporting us.

Hi Drew, perhaps a link to the live stream take of the GA discussion could be posted in the Web page together with the declaration. I am very glad about finally starting to have some definition. It was a great work, and we should continue to improve the process of elaborating our documents.
