(r)evolutionary committees are an instrument of peoples (r)evolution. They are
composed of liberated men and women having discovered through their reading
and studying of the Green Book the fallacy
and falsehood of modern liberal democracy as well as the brutal realities
of modern exploitative societies. Affirming a new advanced and democratic concept of human rights embodied in the Green Charter they organize themselves with others and
form a (r)evolutionary committee in order to pool resources and work together for the people's (r)evolution.
The Mathabas (Headquarters)
are their permanent address. All the (r)evolutionary committees constitute
the Green Charter Movement (GCM).
The GCM is the organized political and practical framework and structure
that encompasses the green (r)evolutionary force. It is the nerve that mobilizes the
masses and the instrument for the propagation of the new civilization. The
GCM is not an instrument of power and does not practice it. Only the people
have the right to power and authority. The GCM cannot even act as the executive
instrument of people's power. That is the task of the popular committees set
up by the people once they have embraced direct democracy and organised themselves into people's conferences.
The true and only aim of the GCM is to educate, guide and organize the masses
to regain their usurped power and authority, and to exercise it directly without
any representation. When the masses achieve this goal, the task of the (r)evolutionary
committee is that of helping to consolidate the authority of the people. Guided
by the thesis of the Green Book, The (r)evolutionary committee works
among the people in its area to prevent the return of the traditional instrument of governance
(political parties, sects, classes, bureaucrats, interest groups) and the return
of the culture of exploitation, domination and oppression.
The method of joining a a (r)evolutionary committee is by way of self conviction
and self assignment. The most distinguishing feature of the GCM as against
other traditional political organizations is its openness and flexibility.
The sole criterion for becoming a member is belief in the thought of the theory
of the masses as postulated in the Green Book
and the courage and determination to apply it. Therefore, a GCM member is
an epitome of the new ideal human being - a living example of liberated and
emancipated humanity, of good manners and skill. Consciouness and deeply rooted
belief in the masses culture are the safeguards from deviating from the course
and becoming another authoritarian political party or "revolutionary movement."
The GCM is distinguished from others by its reliance on democratic precepts
and practice. This permeates, informs and directs all its organizational structures,
mode of operations, relations among members and more importantly their interaction
with the wider society. The Movement holds as cardinal truth, the Green
Book aphorism which states that knowledge is a natural right of every
human being... Ignorance will come to an end when everything is presented as
it actually is and knowledge about everything is available to each person
in the manner that suits him or her.
Thus guided, the (r)evolutionary committee plans its programs and activities daily, weekly, monthly
and annually. The (r)evolutionary committee employs dialogue and convincing as a method of propagating
and defending its ideology and beliefs, and of unmasking other ideologies
that stand in stark contradiction to people's authority.
