People’s Assembly World Social Forum on Migrations

segunda-feira 18 de outubro de 2010, por Nelsinho Pombo,

On Monday, October 11, 2010, the People’s Assembly of the World Social Forum on Migrations convened to agree on a final declaration. The committee presented a declaration to the participants of the assembly, who made comments and suggestions. Eventually, the assembly voted unanimously to approve the declaration. One participant suggested changing the date of the declaration to October 12 to coincide with the day Columbus arrived in the Americas, but the assembly decided against the suggestion. The assembly observed a minute of silence in memory of those migrants who lost their lives. Later, the committee announced its decision that the next social forum on migrations would take place in South Korea. Finally, more than 30 organizations proposed that the People’s Assembly should commit itself to organizing a day of strikes and marches on December 18, 2011, the date the United Nations General Assembly adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, in addition to more mobilizations December 18, 2010 and May 1, 2011. The proposal was approved unanimously.
