Dear participants of GlobalDebout international weekend of May 7th & 8th, 15th #olsx #occupy #globaldebout #londondebout #nightassembly

Dear participants of GlobalDebout international weekend of May 7th & 

While the detailed report of last weekend's workshops is being 
finalised, find below a short summary of the decisions taken on Sunday 
8th during the final plenary in Paris: 

The different workshops organised during the GlobalDebout International 
Meeting of May 7th&8th, decided together on various initiatives 
including a common action. This GLOBALDEBOUT action will be held on 
SUNDAY 15MAY in many cities around the world, calling for the occupation 
of public spaces where assemblies can take place, so people can gather, 
debate and decide on next steps. 

At 20h00 (CET), we will all be connected through a simultaneous 
Mobaction consisting on: kneeling down on the floor of our squares for 
one minute and then rising up while shouting (all wearing colorful 
clothes for this day). 

After the plenary session of the 8th, a working group including 
international participants worked on a boycott project and developed 
some ideas (more information coming soon) to launch a common boycott on 
May 15th, for all movements participating in Global Debout. 

In regards to communication and social networks, we have decided a 
common design line that includes slogans and symbols, but keeping in 
mind the decentralised nature of our communication: think global, act 
local. Each city will develop its own slogan, accompanied by the global 
slogan "They have millions, We are billions!". 

For May 15th, we will be using the same hashtag everywhere: 
#Globaldebout + #YOURCITYDebout (#RomaDebout, #LondonDebout...). This 
way we will be able to gather all materials produced: videos, photos, 
memes, gifs and streamings towards 15May. 
In addition, we suggest each local group to include ''contacts with 
local press'' in their communication strategies. 

We will set up a global streaming for 15may with streamers in each city 
available from a common web stream (more details to come), allowing each 
square to project livestreams of different squares around the world. For 
this, we need contacts of at least one volunteer from every city. Please 
contact GD Live telegram group: . 

We have also pointed out the need of solidarity between squares; "If 
they touch one of us, they touch all of us". 

On May 15th, let's act! 
In our neighborhoods, our towns, our villages. 
It is time to connect, to stand up all together. 
On May 15th, let's occupy public spaces all over the world, for a 

                        They have millions, we are billions!
