Draft Statement

The draft statement represents the beginning of a democratic process leading towards a second People's Assembly in early 2014.

This declaration represents the views of all those who initially called for the People's Assembly.

It is open to the local People's Assembly's, union bodies and campaign groups who support the People's Assembly to suggest amendments, additions, or deletions. These will then all be discussed and decided upon at the recall People's Assembly in 2014.
