PGA Report Athens 2009

The Peoples’ Global Action had 2 Opening Ceremonies. The first was on November 1 at ONA Theater Hall where the
organizers, led by Migrants Rights International, welcomed the participants. PGA participants who were official delegates to the offi cial GFMD then left for the Civil Society Days.

On November 4, the PGA participants staged a rally at Propylaia, near the offi cial GFMD site. Carrying placards and
banners that demand rights and respect, they denounced ongoing government policies to criminalize immigrants and use them as scapegoats for the crippling global financial crisis.

After the rally, the participants, together with the official CSO delegates and representatives from the trade unions, returned to the Gazi Factory for the reopening of the PGA.
