A number of people from the conference are taking the initiative to update and improve the PGA infopoint system. The idea for PGA infopoints was initially discussed at the Leiden Conference in 2002 as a better way to spread information on the PGA network and to build connections between our active struggles. Infopoints were seen as important because PGA does not have membership nor is an organization but needed a way to share our history with others.
More concretely, infopoints succeed by taking local initiative to outreach with groups in your area and promoting the PGA network as a communication tool for our struggles. We are also trying to assemble a package of documents to make this distribution of info more simple. Its also encouraged to adopt the documents to your own local needs and contexts. Having a functioning network of infopoints will strengthen our communication and provide important visability for the network.
As you may know the Infopoint List for europe is terribly out of date so we wanted to ask you a few questions.
