... From Porto Alegre !!

28 January 2005 (Porto Alegre, Brazil)

The WSF is gathering momentum and there is great excitement in the air that “Another World is Possible.” At the FoEI tent, this evening (28th January) awards were given to selected communities who have had outstanding struggles against transnational corporations engaged in destructive extraction of resources in their territories. The beautiful certificate given out to them has written on it “Another World is already happening.” On Sunday evening, an award will be presented to the Ogoni people of Nigeria for their courageous struggles against Shell.
Of the events I said I would participate in yesterday, I ended up taking the stand in only one: reading resistance poems from my collection: We Thought It was Oil but it was Blood. More Details


January, 30th

Saturday, 30 January was a great day at the WSF. A major event I participated in was the Creditors' Public Assembly at which the people declared, "WE DON'T OWE, WE WONT PAY!" There were testimonies from across the world denouncing the so-called external debt as illegitimate, odius and repugnant.
In the evening, yes in the evening...Great singing by Ricardo Carere of the World Rain Forest Movement. He sang songs from his new CD titled "28 Greatest Hits." Strumming away at the guitar, I was astounded because I could never have guessed he was a musician besides being an international forest campaigner. Read More ...


Getting set to go back to the trenches

This is my last posting from PoA, folks…

It is estimated that over 100,000 citizens of the world gathered in Porto Alegre for this year’s World Social Forum (WSF). Gathered around the banks of Rio Guaiba, along the fields of Harmonia and Marinha…. In the Gasometro cultural centre and in the warehouses of the port docks, these citizens convinced that another world is possible; they discussed and strategize in a vigorous and interactive manner on the way out of the wood for us all.
The next gathering of the world’s citizens in this manner will be at WSF 2007 and this will be held in AFRICA!
