From 26-30 March 2013 the World Social Forum (WSF) will take place in Tunis. The WSF is a global meeting bringing together civil society organisations, social movements and activists to discuss our struggles to build another world.
In the recent meetings of Agora99 and Firenze10+10 a diverse group of individuals, active in 15M, Occupy and other horizontal grassroots social movements and networks around the globe, started to talk about the possibilities to participate in the WSF in Tunisia, recognizing this can be the right time and place to come together and share our experiences and practices.
To discuss and organize our participation in the WSF, we started an open communication process through regular online meetings and an inclusive mailing list which is a space open to a variety of initiatives, gathering particularly participants from the various movements mostly emerged throughout the year 2011 (Tunisia, Egypt, Senegal, Morocco, Spain Chile, Usa, Quebec, etc).
During previous meetings many proposals have been suggested: a series of assemblies within the official program of the WSF, an open space about the future of our struggles, communication skill-sharing workshops, a camp and caravan in Tunis, and more. In order to make our these activities as open and inclusive as possible, we also discussed the options of a solidarity fund for travelling and interactive live connection with our activities in Tunisia.
