Women Need to be Included in WSF Reports!

I watched the video Part One of the WSFTV and it is very well done and captures the energy and passion of the Nairobi WSF in 2007, which I attended. However there is NOT ONE woman spokesperson! NOT ONE! That sort of sexism needs to be countered. I don't know who made that video and I don't know who will make the "official" video of the Dakar Social Forum, but I hope someone tells them that this time they MUST include women! DeeDee

PS I admit I did not see part 2. I hope there are women in that one!

Its with much expectations that social activist around the world gathered again this morning to meet in the various workshop only to discover that most of the meetings have been botched due to resumption of academic activities in the host University.

From investigations,IMC-Africa learnt that the University has withdrawn its hosting rights due to the un expected population of activist and organizations that beseiged Dakar for this great meeting. 80% of the workshops has been cancelled, thereby making people to look for alternative events and venues to go to.
