Message for Lebanese NGOs:

Dear colleagues,

Hope that this new year brings closer the social justice that you are all working so hard to attain.

This is a reminder that the deadline to register your organizations and activities in the World Social Forum (WSF) is at the end of January. (

The 2013 WSF is taking place in Tunis from the 26-30th of March.

This global event is an open meeting place for reflective thinking, democratic debate of ideas, formulation of proposals, free exchange of experiences and interlinking for effective action, by groups and movements of civil society that are opposed to neoliberalism and to domination of the world by capital and any form of imperialism, and are committed to building a planetary society directed towards fruitful relationships among Humankind and between it and the Earth. (from the WSF Charter:

It is very important that Lebanese social movements and civil society actors take part in the WSF in order to join our local struggles/fights for social justice with those of other movements worldwide.

 Please note that this year’s forum is extended: you can register and participate in the WSF even if you cannot send a delegate to Tunis. In fact all organizations/ movements that agree with the forum’s Charter of Principles are encouraged to share their message, experiences and vision. For more information on Tunis Extended:

If you are interested in participating in the WSF and would like to receive updates and coordinate with other Lebanese organization please join the Lebanon – wsf discussion by subscribing to our mailing list: or by sending us an email asking to join the list.

As volunteers for the 2013 WSF we would be happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding the forum.

Best regards,
