The conventional role of spacetime geometry in the description of gravity is pointed out. Global Poincaré symmetry as an inner symmetry of field theories defined on a fixed Minkowski spacetime is discussed. Its extension to local P gauge symmetry and the corresponding P gauge fields are introduced. Their minimal coupling to matter is obtained. The scaling behaviour of the partition function of a spinor in P gauge field backgrounds is computed. The corresponding renormalization constraint is used to determine a minimal gauge field dynamics.
