00:27 01:01 Being introduce Prioritaire Well I remember being introduced to that concept after the WTO protests in Seattle in 1999, so I come with just a little bit of familiarity with the concept and seeing people talk about it over the years. It often comes attached with things like the solidarity economy, and trying to figure out how to make more.... how to pre-figure out what we want in the future by getting people used to what the future might be, but starting today.
1:20 02:52 exépriences connues à New York Pertinent Well I don't know how many use that language but I give as an example one of the most important movements in NYC, was turning a lot of abandoned lots into community gardens and it had some celebrity support from um.. Bette Midler. And as a result you have these properties all over the city, but especially in places that were the subject of a lot of inattention, followed by gentrification, and then communities came together to protect these empty spaces because they engaged in a lot of free labor to make them nice places. And you can see evidence of that all over the city, it's a kind of visual reminder. 



Another more recent example is the growth of the participatory budgeting movement. Now in NYC, I don't know what the number is exactly, but it could be a majority of the city council districts in the city all have participatory budgeting, um, and it reminds me that I first learned about that concept attending the first WSF in Porto Alegre, where I think it spread from there. And I also know that the city is now - and this is interesting to talk about our government doing this - the city is now investing in coops, trying to encourage people to run their own businesses cooperatively as worker co-ops, in part to raise the incomes of people who otherwise might be stuck in service jobs that have no capacity for growth.
6:24 07:01 Politic in USA and commoning idea Prioritaire 06:24I think that what I like behind the commoning idea is that, politics in the US, even more so I think than in other countries, is a very specialized, technical profession, and it makes a huge difference what access a person has to resources, not just money, but expertise and relationships. So I think about how do you democratize politics - what kinds of tools are at our disposal to make achieving political change more accessible to more people and less conditional on what a more sophisticated operation is able to provide.
