Welcome on the Internet site of Polycentric World Social Forum

The forum of Bamako, a global event!

The forum of Bamako is one among the three polycentric events planned for January 2006; the two other events should take place simultaneously from January 24th to 29th respectively in Caracas (Venezuela) and Karachi (Pakistan).

As a global event, the forum of Bamako participates to the whole dynamic of the World Social Forum which is a frame of concertation and dialogue, of information and experiences exchange, of fights and popular resistances; But the forum of Bamako is also a space to make credible and good alternatives,for more consideration to initiatives toward building “Another Possible World”.

The forum of Bamako, a significant political event!

The forum of Bamako is of paramount importance to People in Africa who are victimized of the neo liberal system which is itself synonymous to violence, suffering,and poverty and exclusion to over one third of the global population. This meeting will thus offer to progressive forces in Africa a very first opportunity, following to the huge range of popular resistances during the nineties, to significantly set their fights and their alternatives in a global seeking of the construction of a fair world with more solidarity and respectful of People’s sovereignty.

The forum of Bamako, an enrooted cultural event!

The forum of Bamako takes roots both in the rich Malian and African cultural soil which makes Mali’s cultural patrimony. This meeting will thus offer the opportunity to visitors to find out Mali’s past and present symbolic places such as:

  • Djénné, the fascinating city
  • The mystic dogon country
  • Tombouctou, the mysterious
