THIS IS A WORKING SPACE FOR THE ORGANIZING TEAM
People's Global Action is an international network that brings together various anticapitalist & auto-authoritarian collectives, groups and individuals agreeing on the « PGA hallmarks » read them here. PGA has been at the root of a number of mobilisations and events, including: the protests against the second WTO conference in Geneva, May 1998; international action days against capitalism (such as June 18th, 1999, as an answer to the G8 summit in Cologne); KRRS' Indian farmers' intercontinental caravan in 1999.
European PGA encounters take place every two years. They allow participants to exchange experiences & reflexions, to share skills & perspectives, to think & organise altogether, to prepare common actions. The next european PGA conference will take place in France, from August 19th to September 3rd, 2006. It will happen in two parts, in a decentralised fashion: the first 9 days will take place in 5 different locations around France (Toulouse, Dijon, Bellevue, Frayssinous, Lyon), each with specific themes in focus; they will be followed by 2 days off for travelling & chilling-out, then by 4 days in a central location (the Tanneries squatted social centre in Dijon).
This year's convenor is the STAMP collective (also called Les Timbré-e-s in french). It aims at facilitating the conference organisation process, and this wiki happens to be its virtual workspace. It contains meeting minutes and reports, documents in progress, memos and various organisation resources (by the way, we need your financial SupPort (request text available in : SouTien, SoPorte, SosTegno, GeldMittel)).
