Want to know what the "global wave" is all about? Go here.
An important part of it all will be a "united symbol", which can be used by all groups arranging protests/actions they understand to be part of the "global wave". Of course it is up to each group, if they want to make use of it or not.
The symbol is to be seen in combination with the "joint statement", which is the content basis for the "global wave". It can have a very powerful impact, if people see protests worldwide using the same symbol - knowing that everywhere this symbol stands for the struggle against the increasing privatisation of public education and for free and emancipatory education for all.
Therefore we ask all people who feel like making a design suggestion for a symbol to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org before July 31st and it will be published inside this forum.
On Aug. 1st a poll will be set up on the website for one week where everyone can vote for the suggestion s_he likes most. On Aug. 8th we can then determine which symbol design it will finally be.
