AfD Participating in the US Social Forum

Another World Is Possible - Another U.S. Is Necessary

AfD Participating in the US Social Forum

June 27 - July 1, 2007 • Atlanta, GA

Tired of crumbs from the Master's table!
No more using the Master's tools and playing by the Master's rules!

The Alliance has joined with many hundreds of organizations to help organize and mobilize for the United States Social Forum. This Social Forum is part of the rising global peoples’ movement and is bringing together a broad spectrum of groups and individuals from across the U.S. under the banner of Another World Is Possible – Another U.S. is Necessary!

The USSF will provide space to build relationships, learn from each other's experiences, share our analysis of the problems our communities face, and bring the renewed insight and inspiration and the vision and strategy needed to realize another world and to build a real people’s movement in the U.S. – so urgently needed!

There is an Opening Day March and Evening Plenary and the final People’s Assembly on Sunday July 1. There are over 900 workshops, strategy sessions and other plenaries each day. There is a film festival, more marches, concerts, cultural events, and a children’s social forum.

The Alliance has joined with others to create the Democracy Tent and is sponsoring a number of workshops on the Democracy Track that feature all manner of community actions against corporate rights and the skills and training workshops needed to build a democracy movement and end corporate rule. Check here for AfD’s workshops.

The Alliance also joined with many groups in the Water Allies Network and others to create the Water Tent and is sponsoring workshops on the Water Track as well.

We hope to see you in Atlanta. You don’t want to miss this this event – so register today. There are still hotel rooms available.

If you can’t make it to the Social Forum, we’ll keep you informed about how AfD and the democracy movement continue to gain momentum and build after the Forum. Our new Local Democracy Action Tool Kit will soon be available.
