Josue is in contact with Jeanine, one of the contacts in Guatemala, and has offered the support of May First/People Link. In addition, Burke pointed us in the direction of [http://rightsaction.org Rights Action] as a North American organization heading up the effort (see their [http://www.rightsaction.org/articles/social_forum_021608_.html press release here]). Jamie just sent an email to them asking how we could get more involved.

    2731 * In addition, Riseup has pointed us in the direction of the [http://www.web.net/comfront/cfhems.htm Hemispheric Social Alliance], a coalition addressing similar issues but with a more political bent. Burke said that the US counterpart is the [http://www.art-us.org Alliance for Responsible Trade]. He also pointed out a [http://www.art-us.org/brazil_report recent report by Tom Louden] which indicates that the alliance seems to be a live and well (despite the dated feel of the web site). Jamie has also contacted Tom by email.
    2832 * We are also in the process of applying to be members of the [http://apc.org Alliance for Progressive Communications]. We're discussing the application in ticket #250 and are [wiki:apc_membership_app working on the application here].
