7th World Social Forum Underway

The 7th World Social Forum is currently underway in Nairobi, Kenya. The World Social Forum held its first meeting at Porto Alegre, Brazil in 2001. Last year the World Social Forum was held in Caracas, Venezuela at which Hugo Chavez was a key participant. This year, Atlanta is hosting the first US Social Forum June 27 - July 1.

The 7th edition of the World Social Forum brings the world to Africa as activists, social movements, networks, coalitions and other progressive forces from Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Caribbean, North America, Europe and all corners of the African continent converge in Nairobi, Kenya for five days of cultural resistance and celebration.
