Mass Strategy Meeting on United Progressive Offense

The second Mass Strategy Meeting in Atlanta turned out to be a great success. The meeting was a gathering of all the various groups that had been operating separately in the past few months with their own priorities and perspectives on what movements for change should do to build stronger communities or to fight corruption and injustice.

A list of human rights constituted the order of the day and to discuss what Occupy Atlanta and other movements for change should do to defend these rights, the meeting was divided into four parts. At first, for each human right, one or more people explained why they wanted to elevate that particular human right as a top priority. Then, second, everybody was given the opportunity to vote for their preferences using 3 stickers they would place in a grid of priorities. This was called dot-mocracy. Third, people split up in groups discussing specific priorities, and fourth, after the group discussions had taken place, a tentative calendar of event was created while sign up sheets were distributed to gather names and contact information. At the end of the group discussions, group representatives had the opportunity to present a summary of ideas shared in their group’s.

Since 1995, just 10 percent of subsidized American farms -- the largest and wealthiest operations -- have raked in 74 percent of all subsidy payments. Yet, only a tiny fraction of the farm bill funding goes to programs that support healthy fruits and vegetables.
