A one day seminar within DAAR’s reconstruction of the Palestinian Parliament, A Common Assembly will consider the new nature of political action and association, against the background of current collective protest in the Middle East and around the world. The term Common Assembly describes a radical form of political participation, revolutionary protest and collective action – from Cairo’s Tahrir Square, St Paul’s Cathedral – and Nottingham’s Market Square. These forums have changed the meaning of the words common, assembly and occupation.
