What do you propose the first proposal is then?
- Rename the DAO to JusticeDAO or leave it as AssangeDAO?
Then if JusticeDAO - the community would come up with a new mission and vote on it?
Then if AssangeDAO - the community would vote on a new mission/vision and vote on it?
If the core mission remains to Free Assange - it does not mean that proposals can’t go up that aren’t directly related to Assange.
Lots of things are connected to Assange, directly or indirectly, like freedom of speech and information, whistleblowers, WikiLeaks, Cypherpunks. And these things can extend the Assange community.
But we must be careful about mission creep. Free Assange is not a limitation, but on the contrary.
If instead the mission becomes more indeterminate, there will be endless discussions about whether the DAO should throw its efforts behind things that are completely unrelated to Assange and what he stands for.
The Assange family have made it clear that if the mission is to Free Assange and the DAO does remains focused on Assange, they will have the DAOs full support as well as Julian’s full support.
Conversely, if the DAO votes to not focus on Assange as it’s core mission, they may not offer their full support to the DAO as they spend 100% of their time campaigning solely to Free Julian Assange.
The imprisonment of Julian Assange is not just the imprisonment of one man, his extradition case sets a massively dangerous legal precedent. Freedom for Julian is freedom for us all.
Edit: If you have a better vision/mission statement for “Free Julian Assange and support projects/people/initiatives for in which he stands for and supports” then I am definitely open to hearing this.
I think this is difficult to define to avoid scope creep.
