Call for the fourth Occupy the WSF Online Meeting on Thursday 3rd January 2013 at 19.00 GMT, at 20.00 CET, at 21,00 IST

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.

The  coming months we will continue to develop these plans. We  intend to always keep our process open to new people, new proposals, constructive criticism and fresh fuel to the fire from all the corners of the world. Therefore we warmly welcome your participation in our online meetings and/or mailing list.
