> Dear all,
> I am part of a group of Lebanese, Palestinians and other activists  
> (designers, architects, researchers, media people) who have worked  
> together previously, mainly doing media and mapping work during the  
> summer 2006 Israeli attack on Lebanon (I am attaching one of them  
> for your information). We are also working at the moment, among  
> others, on a daily updated map on what is happening in Gaza (and  
> will send it through as soon as it is complete).
> I am working with this group of activists on a platform that will  
> facilitate the co-ordination between solidarity activities for  
> Gaza, and was hoping that you could help me with some information  
> on that if you have any.
> The idea is to:
> (a) Demonstrate in a quick reference that a lot is happening in  
> solidarity with Gaza and that a large group of people is supporting  
> the people there, and
> (b) facilitate information sharing, or at least understanding key  
> trends in the activism work taking place now to allow for  
> coordination & synergy (and thus greater impact).
> My questions to you are:
> 1. Do you know of platforms/websites, etc.. that are facilitating  
> such information sharing and co-ordination? These could be country  
> or region specific (like protest.net for example), or maybe theme  
> specific (like boycott activities, or Israel Arms trade work, etc..)
> 2. Do you know others who are active and well connected who could  
> easily provide such information in your country (if so then please  
> share their contact information or forward this email to them).
> 3. How do you usually publicize the activism you are working on  
> (how do people usually know about it?).
> 4. What do you think would be useful for you to include?
> Thank you.
