yes i agree that ignorance can be bliss, but its time to wake up and
start dealing with these issues 'seriously'.

all criticism needs to be taken seriously. wot arguments are u putting
forward against the accusations of pga as 'postmodern trickery' ? if
your only response is equating 'anarchos' and 'trots' with 'skinhead
nazi groups', i think that some pretty serious questions are raised as
to your own 'politics'

the 'space of the conference' also includes the organisation process.
why have eastern europeans been excluded from the organisation process?
why was the call printed only in languages to the west of belgrade? why
is russian seen as imperialist but not german or english? why have
complaints of groups eg. a black womens group, from the leiden
conference not been carried forward into the process for this

the crisis u face is that u are not engaging in a movement, only in
bureaucracy. if u fail to address these issues RIGHT NOW then u fail for
all time

as things stand we'd like to propose that the warning:
"Warning : Peoples Global Action is run by a bureaucratic clique riven
by racism, sexism and pro-western imperialism."
go on all printed material related to the PGA Conference in Belgrade

we don't see why this would be blocked without 'serious' debate. which
is what we expect when we confront power, be it male, white opr ruling
class supremacism.
