The UFAA is the United Front Against Austerity. We are a coalition movement advocating a Post-modern New Deal that does not compromise on its own values. We advocate the creation of a set list of goals and objectives; these are DEMANDS.
The OWS philosophy as I understand it was no concrete demands. We at the UFAA believe this to be great for mobilization but politically a dead end. We appreciate the protests and work done by OWS but now is time for the political end. You have opened up the world's ears now we have to give them the ability to do something about it!
What A Coalition Means: -We have set goals but are not one entity -We Consist of Many Political Entities--We are modeled on Syriza -We take on anti-austerity measures and social justice -We view fixing the American Economy, raising wages, protecting unions and maintaining the social safety net as an emergency that must take precedent.
What We Are Not: -We are not anarcho-capitalist nor Marxist in nature, though our coalition consists of some Marxists -We are not exclusive -We are not yet a reformist movement as emergency programs take precedent -We are not funded or controlled by outside sources we are self-sustained -We do not allow attempts to split and "factionalize"
Please, take the time to read our program. We need you to partake in the UFAA and support us even if you do not fully agree. We NEED solidarity and it will come from Occupy.
Thank you friends, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
