06-11 Feb: World Social Forum
  • :2011-02-06 To 2011-02-11
  • :Dakar, Senegal

The World Forum in Africa will constitute a unique opportunity for global social movements to develop their critique of world capitalism in the light of the crisis, to achieve a better understanding of the new issues at work in today’s world, to prepare democratic and popular alternatives and to reflect on the future of the World Social Forum itself, as an open space.

This event will also be extremely important for African peoples. For them, it will constitute an unprecedented opportunity for collective democratic expression and will enable them to move towards a way out of the political, institutional and economic deadlock that has been imposed on them by their ruling classes, by the great powers, and by the international financial institutions.

After organising the polycentric Forum at Bamako in 2006 and the WSF at Nairobi in 2007, the Dakar Forum will be an opportunity to consolidate the achievements of the African social movements and the forces of progress on the continent and to compile a striking and visible record of their struggles and alternative solutions in the global search for a just world.
