Working groups

The purpose of a working group is to build a debate support dossier, a sort of strategic thinking "kit" and "tools" for those working on behalf of social movements, which will be freely available and freely distributed. Each group shall set up its own working method. Each working group will have at least one group leader. The group may be conducted in partnership with one or more magazines, websites and/or publishers. The dossier shall consist of articles, interviews and other relevant documents. The issues and visions of the social movements will be the focal point. They will also try to address different points of view depending on the regions, the languages, the types of movements, and the topics.

Indivisible justice: Why supporters of Palestine must stand with other oppressed communities

The necessity to denounce and oppose all forms of racism, sexism, xenophobia, classism and more must inform the activism of POOPs (Progressive only in relation to Palestine), who need to understand that Palestine is not an exception, and that linking it to other struggles is not a dilution, but critical engagement. It must also address to the large percentage of liberals ho are afflicted with PEP. They are progressives except in relation for Palestine.
