Taking a Pause
Andreas Whittam Smith has written this message to all supporters:
I am writing to tell you that our first public meetings were not as successful as we expected. As a result my colleagues and I, who are all volunteers, have decided that a period of careful reflection is necessary. We must rethink our plans and decide how best to go forward. Our café style format was successful but we simply did not attract sufficient numbers of participants.
While our strategy will change, our goals will certainly stay the same, as will the values that guide all our activities.
We thank you all for your commitment to Democracy 2015 since it launched last September and we would be grateful to receive your input regarding how best the movement should develop. You should be assured that your thoughts and ideas will have a real impact on how Democracy 2015’s strategy is to be reformulated and you can be sure that we will get back in touch once we have formulated a viable strategy.
