The group's first press release reads as follows:
'Today Occupy Bath announced the beginning of the Bath People’s Assembly to the excitement of hundreds of strikers in Victoria Park.
The People's Assembly is an independent, democratic, non-affiliated body for discussion, debate and the formulation of ideas and proposals on local, national and global issues and policies.
Its purpose is to give all people of Bath a stronger democratic voice. It invites people of all ages, genders, abilities, races and religions to come and work together to put democracy into action.
The first meeting of the Bath People’s Assembly will be at the Friends Meeting House this Friday from 7.30-9.30pm.
A Facebook event for the meeting has been created here:
http://www.facebook.com/events/195041857248818/, with people invited to submit items for the first meetings agenda. People can also email their ideas to email@example.com.
This meeting will be the first of many.'
The first meeting will discuss the finer logistics of the Assembly, as well as debating over the key issues that are brought forward to the Assembly as agenda items.
It is expected to continue to work on the directly democratic horizontal decision making that the Occupy Movement's General Assemblies have been based on.
