PGA will take place in Geneva from November 29 – December 2


A very quick update from the International Labour Conference in Geneva, where a side-event dealing with this year’s GFMD ist still going on. There will be civil society days and an interface session with the government meeting not unlike Mexico last year. Although the People’s Global Action will take place in Geneva from November 29-December 2.  This would mean the PGA will be held completely in parallel to the official GMD events, so I will check on this – I actually saw some major benefits in last year’s “one meeting after another”-approach.

Finally (for now), the local partner for this year’s PGA will be this organisation:

A lot of information has been given at this meeting, so a larger update will follow soon.
