Some Lessons from A Setback

Nov 13, 2007 Published under Introspection, OneVoice Movement

What are some of the lessons from the painful postponement of the OneVoice Summit?

· to stand strong on our principles, and not let anyone define who we are;

· to anticipate threats and challenges and plan better to prevent anyone from derailing non-violent actions that are consistent with the Will of the People;

· to brief all constituents directly, even those who may be suspicious of or threatened by OneVoice, to clarify the sincerity of purpose and nobility of the goals of the Movement;

· to not be swallowed by hatred or contempt, and to not attack anyone as an individual, but rather to point out that the ideology of absolutism must be overcome;

· to be exceptionally clear and transparent about all we say and do;

· to work more strategically

· to avoid centralization of authority;

· to empower youth leaders;

· to strengthen alliances and emphasize partnerships;

· to demand the highest standards of transparency and professionalism from all of us;

· to never lose sight of why we are doing what we are doing.
