  1. Our solidarity will be based on respect for a political diversity within the struggle for social, economic and environmental justice. As individuals and groups, we may choose to engage in different tactics and plans of action but are committed to
    treating each other with respect.
  2. We reject all attempts to create divisions among our movements. We agree to not publicly criticize other parts of our movement or cooperate with state or media efforts to portray good protester/bad protester.
  3. The actions and tactics used will be organized to maintain appropriate separations of time and space between divergent tactics. We will commit to respecting each others organizing space and the tone and tactics they wish to utilize in that space.
  4. We oppose any state repression of dissent, including surveillance, infiltration, disruption, police brutality, and limiting our actions to “free speech zones”. We agree not to assist law enforcement actions against fellow activists.
  5. We will work to promote a sense of respect for our shared community, our neighbors, and particularly poor and working class people in our community and their personal property.
  6. We remember that, when all is said and done, our greatest victory will be an activist community with a renewed sense of strength and unity.
