    Some Images of Note 

    Antonio Martins from Brazil had this to say about the opening march.

    "The opening march was incredibly, huge and impressive. There were over 70,000 people walking and expressing their feelings and tribulations. It showed the immense diversity of issues the movements, associations and distinct regions of Africa have to deal with. It was much more impressive than the previous edition held in Nairobi 4 years back and a revelation of the importance of this space on social mobilisation".

    Cameroonian dinner tonight (Tue 8th) at 7 pm 

    Hey everyone – please join us for a cameroonian dinner tonight at 7 pm!

    The restaurant is just next to the university: when you come out from the campus to the street Cheikh Anta Diop and you have Just 4 You to your right, take a left instead and the restaurant is right there, just a few hundred meters a way. I’m calling them in the afternoon to order vegetarian food as well.

    Call if you have questions: 765675690 and have a great day! x Lotta

    Imprecoes das primeiras dias 

    Antonio Martins, qual imprecao de Forum de Dakar por quanto?

    A impressão dos dois primeiros dias é contraditória. A marcha de abertura foi imensa, talvez 50 mil pessoas. Revelou enorme diversidade: centenas de movimentos distintos, das distintas regiões da África, expressando uma enorme quantidade de lutas em curso. Foi muito mais impresssionantes que a abertura do FSM em Nairobi, quatro anos atrás. Parece revelar um movimento importante de mobilização social.
    No segundo dia — o primeiro de reuniões e debates –, há sinais graves de desorganização. O programa das atividades ainda não está pronto. A pequena parte que foi liberada refere-se às atividades do primeiro dia, e contém muitos erros. A reitoria da universidade cancelou a cessão de parte das salas que seriam destinadas ao FSM. Está-se tentando, de última hora, substituí-las por tendas. Mas algumas atividades já foram canceladas, o que frustra pessoas que vieram de muito longe — inclusive outros países e continentes –, com grande sacrifício.
    Os problemas — e não apenas estes — sugerem que está na hora de fazer uma autoavaliação mais profunda sobre o FSM. Ela ceveria tentar identificar, inclusive, porque certos movimentos destacados na atualidade não se reconhecem no Fórum. Por exemplo, as próprias rebeliões no mundo árabe, ou as lutas dos estudantes italianos e ingleses. É hora de fazer perguntas

    7th February 2011, Dakar

    The inbuilt instinct of organising in humans has been the cornerstone of our survival. It has also been the key determinant of the different development paths that we see today.

    Today we are struggling with forms of organising that have raised the profile of how to become sustainable. The social, economic and institutional constructs of working as units or a force have influence on the future of humans and larger ecological society.
