Real democracy is rising on the horizon

Collaboration, Society

The current system is unsustainable. It is undemocratic and unjust. We need alternatives; this is where we work towards them.What is needed is a democratic alternative to the political-state system. This alternative must be built by people’s assemblies across the country, to facilitate a new constitution guaranteeing:

  • full social and political participation
  • a new and popular democratic sovereignty
  • a common, structured political economy that delivers social equality and wellbeing for all

It is proposed this insertion be linked to a call for the formation of people’s assemblies in neighbourhoods, workplaces and education establishments across the country, and for a day of action in  support.
