> not sure whether this list is of interest to any currently active
> indymedia activists - it was used a lot in the beginning of European
> indymedia networking, but I doubt that new activists even know about it?
> In any case I just saw that in the ongoing preparation for the next PGA
> conference in August in Greece indymedia is mentioned
> -> http://europe.pgaconference.org/en/greece_08/topics. Is this because
> indymedia activists are involved in the preparations or because they
> want to attract indymedia people or because indymedia *should* be more
> in touch with PGA activities?
> ** see: **
> digital struggles , hack labs , autonomous servers and indymedia tools -
> in a world, dominated by mainstream media where the facts are hidden our
> goal is to give a voice to the voiceless, to prevent censorship and
> commercialization of one of the only remaining outlets of free speech,
> the internet. To counter the alarming commercialization of the internet,
> we pour healthy doses of non-censored, non-commercial subversive
> information into the net. We should promote hacktivism and all groups
> that share this philosophy with us.
> I'm still a great fan of real life networking, though I probably won't
> be able to go.
> And here the forwarded invitation starts:
> PGA - People's Global Action - started in 1998, it has been a tool and a
> diffuse structure coordinating groups and people sharing common struggles
> and practices, in accordance with various anticapitalist and
> anti-authoritarian principles (see the hallmarks). PGA initiated the
> Intercontinental caravan in 1999, as well as international action days of
> actions against the G8, the WTO, the World Bank, the IMF... In Seattle,
> Genoa, Prague, and in a number of less popular events, PGA was a driving
> force behind numerous actions and reflections. At the convergence of
> international initiatives and local struggles, groups close to the PGA are
> now looking for new drives to challenge stagnation.
> In Europe, groups who identify with the PGA principles meet about once
> every two years, through the initiative of a "convenor" collective. Since
> 1998, these conferences have been the opportunity for several days of
> exchanging practices and knowledge, and of establishing bonds, which allow
> us to be better organized in common actions.
> The 5th gathering of Peoples Global Action in Europe this time will take
> place in Greece.
> A responsibility of organizing and coordinating the discussion that opened
> in the last meetings of PGA europe has taken by a decentralized network of
> activists and collectives in Balkans. Thats exactly and the essential
> advantage of this initiative. The convenor is not a local collective like
> other conferences in the past but a vital balkan decentralized network. On
> the preparation all of these months several questions , problems as well
> as ideas for taking action are allready mentioned by all of us who involve
> with a conference here!!! Again in the Balkan region!
> We would like to open a long discussion about local activism in
> combination with a global perspective. In other words we want to discuss
> about the future of the PGA network and its process as well as the various
> projects , topics and ideas for action.
> As a reference example : the following topics that we are allready working
> or we want to invite people to open meeting spaces during the PGA
> Autonomous spaces and squating , patriarchy , gender , radical feminism ,
> anti repression , anti militarism , biotechnology , environmental
> struggles , indigenous spaces , antiglobalization , G8 , DIY activities
> and sharing skills , fanzines , infoshops , PGA infopoints , land and
> autonomy , eco communities , digital struggles and autonomous servers ,
> indymedia tools , precarity and flexibility , radical theory , productive
> networking , local alternatives , activism , other , be continued
> 1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism; all
> trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote destructive
> 2. We reject all forms and systems of domination and discrimination
> including, but not limited to, patriarchy, racism and religious
> fundamentalism of all creeds. We embrace the full dignity of all human
> 3. A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that lobbying can
> have a major impact in such biased and undemocratic organisations, in
> which transnational capital is the only real policy-maker.
> 4. A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support for social
> movements' struggles, advocating forms of resistance which maximize
> respect for life and oppressed peoples' rights, as well as the
> construction of local alternatives to global capitalism.
> 5. An organisational philosophy based on decentralisation and autonomy.
> PGA is a tool for coordination, not an organization. PGA has no members
> and does not have and will not have a juridical personnality. Nor
> organisation or person represents PGA.
> if you wanna take part on the meeting we need the following information
> from you !! please send us as soon as possible at con2008 w no-log.org ..
> have it in mind that our dynamic is not the best one and we need a lot of
> international support and definitely to know how many people are planning
> to join the meeting .. you need also sleeping bags and probably a tent ..
