Press release

23 March 2015 by CADTM International

WSF 2013

The World Social Forum is taking place this year in Tunis (Tunisia) from 24 to 28 March. The CADTM, which has been an active organiser since the beginning, has sent a forty strong delegation coming from nineteen different countries and four continents. Members from Belgium, France, Switzerland, Spain, DR Congo, Benin, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Togo, Niger, Mali, Senegal, Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Congo, Morocco, Haiti, Argentina, India and Pakistan will be present. This strong presence is the best message of support against all forms of fundamentalism that can be sent to the Tunisian People in their times of difficulty.

This participation by the CADTM network is a step forward in our plan of action to develop radical alternatives that will lead to the emergence of a World based on sovereignty, solidarity and cooperation between peoples, respect for the environment, equality, social justice and peace.

To this end, the CADTM organises, or co-organises, a large number of workshops on various topics. It also takes part in several “Unified Assemblies”. These workshops will discuss the problems of the debt and the current general mobilisation in favour of audits, particularly in Greece. They will discuss the effects of free trade in the North (TAFTA) and in the South (Economic Partnership Agreements, DCFTA, etc.), spoliation and the food crisis, the new policies of the International Financial Institutions (IFIs) in North Africa after the “Arab Spring” of 2011 and tax justice. CADTM members will also moderate workshops on women’s struggles against abusive micro credits and the necessity of disobeying creditors.

During this WSF, the CADTM takes an active part in building and strengthening social movements everywhere in the World. All along the Forum and the Social Movements’ Assembly the CADTM network will contribute, from an Internationalist perspective, to building a far reaching social movement, popular, conscious, and mobilised for “another World that is possible”.
