Now it is fix: the next WSF will be in Salvador de Bahia (Brazil) March 13th- 17th 2018.
It is obvious that a WSF in the present international situation is extreme important.
We all should mobilize for it and many comrades should go there.

Started in 2001 in Brazil, The World Social Forum (WSF) is the largest gathering of civil society to find solutions to the problems of
our time by building concrete alternatives to the neoliberal economic model and to politics based on the exploitation of human
beings and nature.
The WSF is a meeting place for social movements, freedom of expression, citizen exchanges,
artistic demonstrations, advocacy and inspiration. It creates concrete commitments and leads to the development
of action strategies by strong networks. Its mission: to build together in a movement of international solidarity a better world founded on social and environmental justice, a social and solidary economy, a participative democracy and the acknowledgement of
equal dignity for all.
The WSF will make history by being the first
to be held in a country said of the ‘’North’’. Facing
the global crisis that is affecting all of humanity, it is crucial to go beyond certain divisions that still persist today and to invite movements and actors from all continents to act together.
