Here's a pretty interesting critique of the World Social Forum from Alex Callinicos and Chris Nineham in the UK on ZNet. They mention how Lula's grand appearance and strong worker's party (PT) presence flouts the official WSF rules that ban "party representations" from participating in the Forum. They've also got a bone to pick with organisers about the the themes, the agenda, and the outcome. So do Kim Foltz, Suren Moodliar and Jason Pramas in their very thorough (long) report in six parts.
