     3The yearly Membership Meeting is the highest decision-making body within May First/People Link. It meets annually to hear and discuss progress reports, approve the yearly work plan goals for the organization and elect its Leadership Committee. An internet organization run by its members is very rare, probably the only one of its kind in this country and ours reflects the belief that the Internet, as the most democratic and open communications technology, was developed by humanity to further free communication and democracy and that an internet organization should reflect those principles.
