Council Motion – Press Release

November 24th, 2011 · Occupy Content · News, Press Releases No comments
We are pleased to announce that Edinburgh City Council has set a
worldwide precedent by voting in favour of the motion to support the
aims and sentiments of Occupy Edinburgh and the aims of the Occupy
Movements as a whole. This motion was presented by the Scottish Green
Party, was seconded by the Scottish Labour Party and was slightly
amended by the SNP and LibDems. The only party not to back the motion
was the Conservatives.We regard this as a fantastic step forward in
the opening of dialogue with the Scottish government. With this
historic decision, Edinburgh City Council are setting an example in
local administration, as well as sending a message to the governments
in both Holyrood and Westminster. They have shown willingness for open
dialogue and respect alongside a fundamental commitment to the
concerns of the people they are elected to represent. The current
systems for economy and resource distribution are grossly outdated,
and as the people educate themselves we begin to demand changes.
Symptoms such as the “austerity/bailout” response of our government
only serves to solidify the attitude of cynicism toward our current
economic system, which has already moved far into general acceptance.
Local Councils are the first step in the re-population of democracy,
and should be following the example of Scotland’s capital by aligning
themselves to a grassroots paradigm that places people and community
before profit and unsustainable growth.
“ Council recognises the aims of the ‘Occupy’ movements throughout the
world and understands that they are an attempt to redirect economic
decisions to be more orientated toward the poor and disenfranchised
which is a sentiment the Council endorses. “
