Reading an article (page 7) I read this:

Just as ordinary general covariance may be regarded as the local gauge symmetry corresponding to the global Poincare algebra and local gauge invariance as the gauge symmetry corresponding to the global abelian algebra

I would like if somebody could tell me with as much detail as possible the relation between general covariance and a global Poincaré algebra.
