Rising Tide UK adopterer PGA prinsippene

Posted by Fredsvenn den november 6, 2007

As of May 2007, following discussions at our 2007 National Gathering, the UK Rising Tide network has adopted the Peoples’ Global Action Hallmarks.

Peoples’ Global Action (PGA) is a network for spreading information and coordinating actions between grassroots movements around the world. These diverse groups share the same opposition to capitalism, and commitment to direct action and civil disobedience as the most effective form of struggle. PGA grew out of the international Zapatista gatherings in 1996 and 1997, and was formed as a space for direct and un -mediated contact between autonomous groups.

PGA Hallmarks

1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism; all trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote destructive globalisation.

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 beings.

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.

    mark that these pga-systems make use of several third-party service providers for managing communications between autonomous groups. these archive and analyse traffic that passes through their channels. pga is not on any of their material warning against this risk. i think we must wonder on whos initiative the pga was constructed and with what purpose and who is monitoring and pulling the strings of the system today. the first half of the last question we know a partial answer to: google, the nsa, the cia, at the least! i am a pga member, but will not start using any of their communication, calendar forae and other services until we ourselves control the means. contact me in a verifiable way and i’ll dispatch a courier.
