North American Social Forum
North American activists are struggling to find a good way to hold a regional social forum in North America. "Activists in the US face the irony of living in the most powerful country but also having the most disempowered citizenry," say Thomas Ponniah and Marc Becker in a summary of the discussion delegates had at the World Social Forum in Brazil this year.
How to engage youth and people of colour, and how to pay for the whole shebang were major issues of concern... An interesting piece that shows the North American Forum is still some way off, and why.
