Another World Is Possible : World Social Forum Proposals for an Alternative Globalization - (Hardcover)
About this item
In 2001, the inaugural World Social Forum was held in Porto Alegre, Brazil. While many liberal intellectuals have since become deeply critical of the Forum, newer movements—such as Occupy and the Arab Spring Uprising—have nevertheless built upon its successes and innovations, highlighting how deeply the Forum’s early work still resonates with activists. First published in 2003, Another World Is Possible is an original compilation of essays and proposals gathered from the first two annual meetings of the World Social Forum. This collection not only lays out the initial aims of the movement as it came together, but it also shows how they paved the way for theoretical study of new social movements and their multiple and participatory characters. Today, as brutal catastrophes worldwide affect all our lives, the new edition of Another World Is Possible revisits the original demands of the global solidarity movement—united in its determination to fight against the concentration of wealth, the destruction of our earth, and the proliferation of poverty and inequalities.
