Our (Occupy Eugene)
solidarity (unity)
will be based on respect (Respect: esteem for or a sense of the worth or excellence of a person, a personal quality or ability, or something considered as a manifestation of a personal quality or ability. example: if we all have respect for each other, that all debate will be from a source of esteem and self-worth of the movement, and therefore not detrimental to the movement, but strengthening.)
for a diversity of tactics (nonviolent)
and the plans (nonviolent)
of other groups.

2. The actions and tactics used will be organized to maintain a separation of time or space.
