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!
