Real Democracy Now – Geneva (RDNG) will join the call for global demonstration on Saturday 15th of October, under the common slogan “United for Global Change”. We publicly announce a peaceful demonstration for that day at the Place des Nations in Geneva, around 1pm, in front of United Nations main gate.
Our demonstration has 2 main goals:
1) CITIZEN DEBATE: We want to get together all citizens of Geneva that are unhappy with the current international political situation, more specifically the management of the economic crisis, to freely express their dissatisfaction, their opinions and proposals.
2) CITIZEN GLOBAL RESCUE PLAN: We want to propose, as a citizen assembly, 3 specific and urgent measures that we feel would represent a first step out of this economic crisis, without causing further problems for citizens:
2.1- YES TO CUTS (of privileges): end of tax havens.
2.2- YES TO AUSTERITY (for the rich): progressive tax - Buffet law for millionaires.
2.3- YES TO TAXES (on speculation): Tobin tax.
These 3 measures constitute part of our peaceful demand for a REAL DEMOCRACY NOW. Specifically, urgent reforms for Governments to really take control of the free-markets, and for Citizens to really control the Governments, not the other way round.
Our Demonstration as part of 15-O is also an Assembly: we want to open the debate to all citizens of Geneva. This will be the sixth time that RDNG occupies a public space, after having demonstrated peacefully at the Place du Bourg-de-Four (20/05/11), Bains de Pâquis (28/05/11), Place de la Navigation (19/06/11), Rue du Léman, in front of the Permanent Mission of Greece before United Nations (24/06/11) and Place de la Navigation (23/07/11).
