14. OK, I hate to dash cold water on this, BUT
this document is nothing but a list of grievances. Which is fine as far as it goes (you have to analyze what's wrong before you can fix it), but the "action" part of it consists of nothing but platitudes. You're NOT going to redress these grievances by "peaceably assembling" or "occupying public space". And "creating a process to address the problems we face and generate solutions accessible to everyone" is worthless if the people who have the power TO implement those solutions, don't WANT to implement the solutions.

I have a question for the New York City General Assembly. The abuses you listed cross a WIDE range of economic sectors, industries, and companies. And of course government complicity WITH these corporations across those sectors, industries, and companies. Why someone would be led to believe it was a SYSTEMIC problem. :sarcasm: If this is the case, why should anyone reasonably expect these corporations to go along with your solutions? ESPECIALLY when these corporations not only allowed, but actually ENCOURAGED the abuses.

I like the list of grievances, but the "action" part leaves a lot to be desired.
