The attached document is a proposal for specifically how to make decisions in the Occupy Movement.

Occupying Organization 1.5.pdf

This proposal is based on the core values of inclusivity, transparency, power-equivalence, respect, nonviolence, effectiveness, and fun.  

The underlying framework is sociocracy.

With the intent of supporting these core values, all questions, comments, and improvements are gratefully accepted!
