CBTU Will Be At The World Social Forum!
The CBTU will be present at the World Social Forum being held in Montreal from August 9 - 14, 2016. Created in 2001, in Brazil, the World Social Forum (WSF) is the biggest civil society gathering aiming to find solutions to contemporary issues, by establishing practical alternatives to the neoliberal economic model and politics founded on human beings and nature’s exploitation.
The WSF is a place of convergence for all social movements. Its aim: building together, in an impetus of international solidarity, a better world based on social and environmental justice, social and supportive economy, participative democracy and the acknowledgement of equal dignity of all human beings.
This is the first time the WSF is being held in North America. In light of the global crisis affecting all of humanity, it is crucial that we surpass the cleavages persisting and to invite movements and actors of solutions from all continents to act together.
