You'll find, translated in six languages, the appel for participating to
Regional Social Forum and World Social Forum. We would like this appel be
sent to a lot of activist networks (movements struggling against poverty,
precarity, housing rihts associations, women associations, migrants
associations, workless, ...) all around the world.
SOCIAL FORUMS MUST ALSO INCLUDE THE PEOPLE'S MOVEMENTS, OR »HAVE-NOTS«
The Global Social Forum and the continental forums raise the hopes of the 2.8 billion people who live in poverty and face increasing misery, inequality, war, commercialisation of all living activity, and environmental degradation. The social forums strive to create a more united and peaceful world, where minorities and other subjugated peoples are no longer oppressed, and the environment is treated with respect.
The current actors in the GSF must strive towards a balance of power that can transform the world. The next step in the construction of an alternative to neoliberal capitalism must unite the movements fighting for the poor or 'have-nots' of the planet and support their development. Indeed, about half of humanity lives on less than $2 per day. Not only must they take part in the transformation, but they are also under threat: the logic of a neoliberal system is to eliminate an unproductive population which has no means of consumption and yet consumes non-renewable resources, and threatens to place limits on the concentration of wealth.
We demand that the Third Global Forum and the continental forums integrate the various anti-poverty movements emerging around the world, giving them a higher profile at the heart of this encounter in order to breathe new life into this initiative and to unite all the actors in the battle against the dictates of neoliberal economics.
