>Peoples' Global Action (PGA) is a way for anti-capitalist direct
>action groups and movements to communicate better, to share stories
>of their struggles, and, with any luck, to inspire eachother and
>others. In the past it has helped to network global mobilisations
>like J18 1999 and that against the World Bank and IMF in 2000, as
>well as supporting action caravans heading towards summit
>mobilisations. More recently it has had a more local focus, as many
>groups particularly in Europe have been setting up permanent or
>temporary centres, some of which act as PGA 'infopoints'. The London
>infopoint is the London Action Resource Centre (or LARC -
><http://www.londonarc.org/>www.londonarc.org), which is used and
>supported by groups like London Indymedia, Destroy DSEi, Rhythms of
>Resistance and London Rising Tide.
>This benefit is to help towards the travel costs of delegates from
>the global south to the next PGA meeting. For more info, email
