>What is PDAG? Philadelphia Direct Action Group is a grassroots group of
>activists planning creative nonviolent direct action at the Republican
>National Convention, Aug 1-3.

>What is the Convergence? PDAG expects thousands of activists to "converge"

>direct action need special training. The Convergence week activities are
>designed to provide the training protesters need before they hit the
>streets. The goal: to insure the safety of everyone in the street, and to
>make the group's nonviolent protests as effective as they can be.
