Here you will find a collection of files that sometimes are too large to display on our blog pages. Nevertheless, they represent a treasure of information and knowledge that can add value to Occupation in most places.

Feel free to download any of them and pass it on if you like it.

The Five-Fold Path of Productive Meetings 

a bonus chapter of The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups, by Starhawk, published in November 2011, by New Society Publishers

It is a great resource for any Occupy facilitator or anybody who wants to understand better the ins and outs consensus building.

From the “99%” – THE NEW COMMON SENSE

A commentator at Occupy Wall Street wrote about it:

THE NEW COMMON SENSE – This document: 1) Demands that the illegal 4th Branch of the Federal Government, “The Special Interest Branch” be expelled from unfair influence in DC immediately. 2) Explains how the three branches of the Federal government have violated the Constitution. 3) Lays out a detailed plan on how to repair the Constitution and force the government to uphold it again by taking an audit and inventory of it, rooting out all that is unconstitutional.

It can help give us more time to build a better platform, all while finally shutting the media up when they claim that we have nothing substantial to say. It’s a must read. It’s loophole free and it fully explains itself. Please take the time to read and share and discuss this most important document that has appeared on the scene and is spreading like wildfire. It’s a true gift to Occupy. I just hope and pray that we accept it and use it and add it to our toolbox.

What is next for the Occupy Movement? 

Summary report of the Occupy Toronto design conversations,

Nov. 25, 2011

It’s a remarkably coherent strategy and visioning document by Occupy Toronto, which can inspire many of the Occupy vision and structure conversations taking place in other cities as well.

Promissory Notes – from Crisis to Commons (2009)

Midnight Notes Collective and Friends gift us a perspective on crisis that has its roots way back in history:

Crisis: What it is, What it is not: After five hundred years of existence, capitalists are once again announcing to us that their system is in crisis. They are urging everyone to make sacrifices to save its life. We are told that if we do not make these sacrifices, we together face the prospect of a mutual shipwreck. Such threats should be taken seriously. Already in every part of the planet, workers are paying the price of the crisis in retrenchment, mass unemployment, lost pensions, foreclosures, and death.
