If I arrive in time tomorrow I will try to propose it at the General
Assembly. When are they planning on holding the GA?
I also plan on making a proposal that I think would be compatible with
the image "rebranding" proposal: that we attempt to reframe our
communication with the world by drafting a Constitution, a set of
common values that could represent us and the society that we as a
movement are trying to model-forth, rather than proposing "Demands" as
we've been calling them. It's my understanding that this is what
happened in Spain, with considerable success.
