The World Social Forum is starting today at Mumbai, India.
It proclaims that it’s not an organization, nor a united front platform, but “…an open meeting place for reflective thinking, democratic debate of ideas, formulation of proposals, free exchange of experiences and inter-linking for effective action, by groups and movements of civil society that are opposed to neo- liberalism and to domination of the world by capital and any form of imperialism, and are committed to building a society centered on the human person”.
The first WSF was held in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre in 2001. Then 25000 participated. This time there are 85,000 dreamers/activists who believe another world is possible. More power!
