Monastir (Tunisia), 12th to 17th July 2012
We invite you to join us in Monastir, from the 12th to the 17th of July, where we will launch together the process towards the World Social Forum 2013.
At the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011, Tunisian people, quickly joined by Egyptians, have launched a global wave of protests, insurrections, revolutions, indignation and occupations, which spread all over the world.
From Maghreb to the Middle-East, this wave has initiated a deep political upheaval. In Europe, it is a source of inspiration for all those who struggle against austerity. In the United States of America, it questions the power of financial institutions, of banks and of the weight of debt (be it households’ or students’ debt). In Chile, Quebec or Mexico, it takes the shape of mass mobilizations for the free access to education. In Senegal, it has definitely planted the claim for a real democracy, which would put an end to corruption, prevarication and nepotism.
