Pittsburgh: POG G20 Resistance Update #1
Since we last spoke so much has happened, and so much more remains to do. Our last statement laid out POG’s decisions regarding the G20 and let people know about a soon-to-be formed entity against the G20.
The Pittsburgh G20 Resistance Project (PG20RP), www.resistg20.org concluded its two-day summit two weeks ago and has officially formed as a way to bring together individuals and projects to mobilize a broader resistance. The initial meeting had ~60 people, all locals. The size and structure of the project, with regular general assemblies and working groups, is a promising organizational development.
This structure is (hopefully) not a vehicle for any one particular group, anarchist tendency, or viewpoint. It will, of course, seek consensus, work to educate, and issue statements when necessary. The general website promotes flyers, posters, literature, statements, and calls to action that are submitted. Check out the new 16 page informational zine on the G20 that‘s been released. resistg20.org...
POG is excited that a larger, open space now exists for the respectful expression and articulation of views, updates, questions, plans, and dreams. We’re looking forward to utilizing it and we hope others do similarly.
This can only aid the gathering momentum, the coming storm.
It was towards that aim that we released our Call To Action and G20 Statement, which collectively laid out our group’s perspective on the summit, how we see our relationship to the new PG20RP, and why we hope to release a series of weekly updates on the progression and challenges of the September mobilization. We aimed for a comprehensive update because it allows us to avoid multiple statements on different aspects of the mobilization and reduces the number of questions people send us.
In Solidarity and Struggle, Pittsburgh Organizing Group
