CALL FOR FILMMAKERS, VIDEO ARTISTS, MEDIA PROFESSIONALS, COMPUTER BUGS,
BE PART OF THE WORLD SOCIAL FORUM... SEND A LETTER TO 100,000 PEOPLE WHO
ARE GATHERING IN MUMBAI,INDIA TO MAKE ANOTHER WORLD POSSIBLE
In the three years since its inception the World Social Forum has become
an international landmark. In an era where corporate globalisation is
presented as an inevitability, where the neo-liberal notion of development
increasingly pervades most governments and undermines traditional
cultures, thousands of activists, artists, academics, economists, writers,
students, farmers, workers and many others will gather to protest this
domination of capital over humanity, with vitality, wit and vision and to
celebrate an alternative view of democracy and development because ANOTHER
WORLD IS POSSIBLE.
In 2004 the World Social Forum will take place in Mumbai, India
