Dinamizzazione delle Assemblee

Download here Proposta abbozzata per la dinamizzazione dell’Assemblea di Sol. Questo documento e’ stato elaborato dalla commissione di dinamizzazione delle assemblee della Acampada de Sol con una doppia finalita’: da un lato quella di favorire la rotazione dentro la propria commissione di dinamizzazione delle assemblee; dall’altro lato quella di proporre soluzioni pratiche e offrire un possibile modello di lavoro alle altre assemblee, commissioni o gruppi di lavoro che stanno nascendo. Questo documento intende chiarire anche che l’assemblea di Sol, nonostante il gran valore simbolico che le viene attribuito, rappresenta e decide in forma libera e indipendente sull’accampamento di Sol, e non pretende rappresentare nessun altro. Perdipiu’ incoraggia tutti coloro che vogliono decidere sui loro spazi di lavoro, quartieri, municipi o edifici, di organizzarsi in assemblea e di decidere loro stessi/e sulle proprie vite. Da qui non possiamo fare altro che offrire un modello di funzionamento costruito sulla pratica e affermare che e’ stato sperimentato in assemblee dai 20 ai 3000 partecipanti. In qualsiasi caso non si tratta di un modello chiuso, e invitiamo a tutte le persone a provare a migliorarlo, giacche’ e’ cosi’ che lo abbiamo sviluppato.Il concetto di assemblea Uno spazio dove si trasmettono informazioni e proposte per cercare di arrivare a un consenso. Il concetto di consenso Le assemblee di Sol si sono autodefinite come spazio di decisione basato sull’orizzontalita’ in cui non si vota ma si prova a forgiare un consenso….
