This January 22, 2008 global press conferences on Palestine, Phillipines and South Korea have started to announce details of the 2008 decentralized World Social Forum Global Day of Mobilization and Action. Listen to the first comment by Hindi Mesleh after, after the conference in Palestina. Next alternative media records will be available at wsf2008.net media center after

Millions of people all over the world will march, speak, celebrate,
and dialogue in villages, rural zones, and urban centers. They will
mobilize on the date of the 26th of January to coincide the Global Day
of Mobilization and Action with the World Economic Forum held in
Davos, Switzerland to confront this important neo-liberal gathering of
the elites.

In these same days the ?old? world, represented by the World Economic
Forum complete with its economists, experts, and ideologies that
produce violence, exploitation, exclusion, poverty, hunger and
ecological disaster and deprive people of human rights, will meet in
Davos as usual. In contrast, the people?s movement of movements will
raise their collective voices and take action all around the globe for
the World Social Forum 2008.

The World Social Forum is an open space where social movements,
networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations come together to
lift up issues, debate ideas democratically, formulate proposals,
share experiences, and network for effective action. These movements
are opposed to neo-liberalism and a world dominated by capital and all
forms of imperialism. Since the first worldwide encounter in 2001, the
World Social Forum has become a permanent global process seeking and
building alternatives to neo-liberal policies.

World Social Forums have taken place at the end of January at
different sites throughout the world each year for the past seven
years, and their spirit will continue to be reflected in the
activities planned at those same sites and worldwide in 2008.

This January 22nd, at least 18 press conferences are going on.

- Atlanta, USA
- Zurich, Switzerland
- Chennai, India
- Mumbai, India
- Erbil, Iraq
- Rome, Italy

- Belem, Brazil
- Mexico City, Mexico
- La Habana, Cuba

The press conferences are highlight actions happening in each country
as well as stories from the front lines of people?s struggles.

Millions of people, workers, organizations, networks, and movements
around the world are struggling, against neo-liberalism, war,
colonialism, racism, and patriarchy with rich and varied proposals of
real-life alternatives. They represent all ages, peoples, cultures,
and beliefs united by the strong conviction that ANOTHER WORLD IS
