World Social Forum 2005

World Social Forum 2005: An Irish Eyewitness Report - International Rights and Freedoms
The fifth World Social Forum (WSF) which took place last week in Porto Alegre, Brazil was a vital event for all those who are concerned with the state of the World. The WSF showed clearly that five years on from the Seattle protests, the ‘alter-globalisation’ movement continues to grow in strength and importance. 120,000 registered for the forum, almost 200,000 took part in the opening march and 352 proposals and calls for action came out of the more than 2000 panels and workshops that took place.
The WSF was post-tsunami in the pre-tsunami era.
