Yesterday Occupy Bath announced the beginning of the Bath People’s Assembly to the excitement of hundreds of strikers in Victoria Park.
In a statement about the annoucement, they said:
“The People’s Assembly is an independent, democratic, non-affiliated body for discussion, debate and the formulation of ideas and proposals on local, national and global issues and policies.
“Its purpose is to give all people of Bath a stronger democratic voice. It invites people of all ages, genders, abilities, races and religions to come and work together to put democracy into action.
“The first meeting of the Bath People’s Assembly will be at the Friends Meeting House this Friday from 7.30-9.30pm.“
A Facebook event for the meeting has been created here: http://www.facebook.com/events/195041857248818/, where potential attendees are invited to submit items for the first meetings agenda.
Attendees may alternatively email their ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The group say that “this meeting will be the first of many”.
