Antiwar Demonstration, March 24, 2007

This demonstration drew 5,000 people to Boston Common and was an inflection point in the organizing of the regional antiwar movement. All its organizing meetings were held at e5 and it drew substantially on the organizing time of MGA's staff. The event website is hosted and designed by MGA. It laid the basis for the successful New England-wide mobilization of 10,000 people held later that year.

Opening Parade, US Social Forum, 2007

Mass Global Action contributed to the organizing of the US Social Forum in 2007. We helped mobilize the northeast, hosted regional coordination meetings (at e5) and produced materials introducing folks to the idea of the social forum. We also hosted the early mailing lists and website. This was our way of continuing the work begun at the Boston Social Forum.
