A movement of Ideals
The Freedom Committees are non-profit association formed with the intention of spreading the values of freedom fulfilled on cultural and political bases. We believe in the ideals of liberalism, reform, federalism and direct democracy. Our main objectives are to unite people have similar beliefs and are interested in influencing the political arena to defend individual rights.
The Association has a Head/Chief Committee, which is headed by both the Head or Chief Committee and General President, authorities and give the main guideline to political and cultural activities. It also consists of an Executive Committee whose members are chosen, by vote, from the associates the Head or Chief Committee. In addition, it includes Regional Committees that are autonomous in their function and have a federal link with one another organising their own initiatives and events.
The Chief Committee includes intellectuals, artists, journalists, writers and professionals who are willing to dedicate some of their free time and to publicly use their names in order to defend their shared ideals. Admission to the Chief Committee is by invitation only. The people invited to join the body are renowned in their field and active in upholding their principles of freedom. The General President is elected within the Chief Committee and acts as an international guide (contact) of the Association.
The Executive Committee is elected during the annual General Meeting from the members of the Chief Committee. Its main function is to lead the Association in its practical activities. It also designates a President and a Spokesman: their task is to carry out the purposes of the whole movement during the year.
The Regional Committees are spontaneously formed on the basis of the adhesion of at least 9 members. Each Committee gives itself a name, it chooses a President and a Spokesperson but requires approval from the Executive. They carry out cultural and political initiatives with full financial and organisational autonomy, while remaining within the framework of principles given by the Association. They can ask the Chief Committee or other Regional Committees to support their projects.
Any Association provided it goals, activities and initiatives are compatible with the movement, may ask to be acknowledged as a Regional Committee. The Association requesting admission may also retain its own name and constitional body in its original form, provided the Association does not belong to any political party.
Groups of Regional Committees can elect a Representative, which is a member of the Executive Committee.
A General Meeting is held once a year. Its agenda includes, electing the General President, ending the Executive Committee, of renewing offices and of determining through internal elections the general orientation of the movement and its initiatives.
The Goals of the Freedom Committees . Are both cultural and political. Their aims are to facilitate culture freedom, promoting the liaison and cohesion in action among all those who believe in these ideals, regardless of personal affiliation to a political party: supporting the rights of all citizens in the choice of political programmes and in the compilation of the electoral lists. They would also like to encourage and development of professionally competent politicians and sustain every form of direct democracy.
