On April 15 #ExtinctionRebellion will shut down London, demanding a sane response to the climate crisis, guided by citizen assemblies.

If you support this plan, you need to know about #vTaiwan - the world's most advanced citizen participation process.

Mini history: 2014 Taiwan political crisis triggers Sunflower movement (cf #brexit). Students occupy parliament for 3 wks to demonstrate what modern deliberative democracy looks like (excellent facilitation + total transparency + meaningful participation for all stakeholders).
This sparks a massive peaceful transfer of power from parties to unaffiliated citizens (many leading political figures are independent).

Taiwan is probably Earth's most open, participatory, digital, post-party democracy.
