PALIAct

The Progressive African Librarian and Information Activists’ Group (PALIAct) is an initiative of a group of progressive African librarians and information workers.

We recognise that current “leaders” in the African information field have done little to break the colonial and imperialist policies and practices in meeting the information needs of working people in Africa, or to make the profession more relevant to the needs of African librarians and information workers.

We have therefore decided to take the initiative to set up an alternative organisation – the Progressive African Library and Information Activists’ Group – PALIAct.
