About this book

In January 2001, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, 20,000 activists, students, filmmakers came together to share their experiences and exchange ideas about confronting Empire. That was the birth of the now-historic World Social Forum. The rallying cry of the WSF is Another World is Possible.' It has become a platform where hundreds of conversations, debates and seminars have helped to hone and refine a vision of what kind of world it should be.
- Arundhati Roy.

The World Social Forum has become a key part of the international global justice movement, attracting activists around the world. Here, Leite lays out the origins, development and challenges of the forum today.
