A grassroots movement is one that uses the people in a given district, region, or community as the basis for a political or economic movement. Grassroots movements are associated with bottom-up, rather than top-down decision making, and are sometimes considered more natural or spontaneous than more traditional power structures. Grassroots movements, using self-organization , encourage community members to contribute by taking responsibility and action for their community. Goals of specific movements vary and change, but the movements are consistent in their focus on increasing mass participation in politics. The idea of grassroots is often conflated with participatory democracy. The Port Huron Statement , a manifesto seeking a more democratic society, says that to create a more equitable society, "the grass roots of American Society" need to be the basis of civil rights and economic reform movements. The earliest origins of the use of "grass roots" as a political metaphor are obscure.

This article examines a subset of grassroots or voluntary associations that work primarily at the local level to promote strong grassroots participation in civil society. It explains that voluntary associations are often assumed to be synonymous with civil society and an engaged democratic citizenry and reviews the definition and scope of these associations and their relationships to other civil society groups. It introduces a category of associations called social change organizations and provides two examples showing how new alliances between different types of grassroots association are emerging to link local work with larger efforts to build civic voice. Keywords: grassroots associations , voluntary associations , civil society , democratic citizenry , social change organizations , civic voice.

We want to have just an off-the-cuff chat between you and me — us. We want to talk right down to earth in a language that everybody here can easily understand. We all agree tonight, all of the speakers have agreed, that America has a very serious problem. Not only does America have a very serious problem, but our people have a very serious problem. Once you face this as a fact, then you can start plotting a course that will make you appear intelligent, instead of unintelligent.

This bilingual book is several things at once. Urban Claims and the Right to the City focuses on two networks in these two cities.

For example, an association it worked with negotiated with the government for 20 years to guarantee, within a regeneration area, permanent residences of low-income families, as well as community facilities. In London, Just Space brings together campaigners with an interest in influencing planning processes.
ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Правда о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ. Сьюзан понимающе кивнула. Это звучало вполне логично: Танкадо хотел заставить АНБ рассказать о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ всему миру. По сути, это был самый настоящий шантаж. Он предоставил АНБ выбор: либо рассказать миру о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, либо лишиться главного банка данных.
Если бы ему удалось затеряться в центральной части города, у него был бы шанс спастись. Спидометр показывал 60 миль в час. До поворота еще минуты две. Он знал, что этого времени у него. Сзади его нагоняло такси. Он смотрел на приближающиеся огни центра города и молил Бога, чтобы он дал ему добраться туда живым. Беккер проехал уже половину пути, когда услышал сзади металлический скрежет, прижался к рулю и до отказа открыл дроссель.
