The “occupy” philosophy is both local and global; non violent; lawful and peaceful. In a local context, we are merely celebrating the “Australian values” of mate ship; a fair go; barbecues and picnics; democracy and other privileged freedoms that the one percent tell the 99 percent. We also aim to build “resilient communities” (occupy movements) that mitigate any form of violence from us or the state. Often at meetings, we emphasize the importance of an open political space - Direct Democracy - through the bottom up creation of workers groups (see our workers group page), rather through joining already existing ones framed from our General Assemblies, or creating your own. These range anywhere from food groups, economics to civil liberties. We invite you to join us in continuing to learn about the philosophy of occupy and make any suggestions. In order to contribute, it is well worth checking out the concept of workers groups; general assemblies and non violent direct action.
