What happened at the PGA wintermeeting (in
At the last European conference of the PGA, we decided
to postpone some decisions on organisational questions of
PGA until the wintermeeting. One of the problems was
that we did not find a new convenor (the group that
organises the next conference)

The wintermeeting took place on the weekend of the 7th
and the 8th of March, in the social centre ?les tanneries?
in Dijon, France. This is a short overview of the decisions
that were taken, if you are hungry for more take a look at
the report that was made from the notes (see

New convenor
The DSM (another world is possible) coalition from (ex)
yugoslavia proposed to be the new convenor and was
accepted. They said they will need lots of help, infopoints
should take on some of the work of calling out and
networking for the conference.
DSM will organise a seminar in June on privatisation,
which will be a test-case to see whether they are up for
organising a conference. Groups active in PGA are invited
to participate in the organisation of the seminar. We will
also have our first preparation meeting of the conference
just after the seminar. DSM says they cannot organise
the conference before the autumn, which basically means
it will not take place until April next year, when the
temperatures begin to rise again.

Gender and PGA
There is a lack of importance given to the gender issue in
the PGA network. In order to combat that it was decided
to put more effort into it. Decisions include having one
day of the next conference reserved for Gender, invite
groups working on gender, have special spaces at the next
conference where gender can be discussed and make a
flyer making people aware of gendered social interaction.
There is a gender working group coordinating some of the
preparations, it can be contacted through the process list:

The global action archive (www.globalaction.tk) is going
to be the place where all infopoints can publish and shre
their materials, calls, ideas etc. Infopoints can get more
info at: agpweb@lists.riseup.net.
Since the convenors are not very experienced the
infopoints will take over the role of networking, sending
out calls and maintenance of email lists and websites.

They maintain www.agp.org and www.globalaction.tk
(both php), and manage the caravan99 email list.
However they need lots of help, if you are interested you
can contact them at: agpweb@lists.riseup.net
They will be present at the skill sharing meeting in July
in Esturias.

Process points
What was left undecided at the last conference in Leiden
because of lack of time, most of the points concerned the
support group. We decided that all the infopoints that
want to do supportwork should be seen as the support
group, now called the european process group. They will
have an open meeting next conference and a skill sharing
meeting before. We decided to delete all the other
support group points that were left.

Global process
There was an update from the PGA in other regions and
we decided it would be good to have periodical updates
on the email lists on this. The European group working on
global process will have an open meeting at the next

The Escanda proposal
The Escanda collective has sent a proposal to organise
two different gatherings in Esturias.
1) a meeting with all the PGA convenors around the globe
1-15 of July
2) a skill sharing meeting, as an intro to support work 4-6
and 11-13 of July.
We decided at the wintermeeting it was not the right
time to have a proposal on a global convenors meeting,
more discussion needs to be had on how to advance the
global process.

G8 Evian

organisation of the anti-G8 protests in Evian from 1-3 of
