How common is the common space? GFMD Civil Society Days start in Puerto Vallarta..


Hola everybody from Puerto Vallarta, a good place to clear the smog-filled lungs after 10 days in Mexico-City. If the “official” proceedings will also bring a breath of fresh air has yet to be seen… The most interesting aspect for me will be the “common space” deliberations, but who will be allowed to participate in them? Apparently, I can, but

not everybody did get the sticker I tried to mark in the picture posted above. From what I heard, you would have to have participated in a previous meeting to be allowed in the common space. But I met several people wo participated previously and did not get the sticker and vice versa.

Also, this access rule seems to refer to the start of the government meeting on Wednesday. Many delegates were not aware of that and some have booked their return flight for that time already.

I hope they find a good solution, because the lack of communication on this matter caused a lot of unrest in Athens last year…

I’ll keep you updated…
