World Social Forum 2004, Will Be Held in Mumbai

The World Social Forum, India consultation meeting held at Nagpur, on 21-22 March, 2003, has decided to host the World Social Forum, 2004 in Mumbai in India. A brief note on the decision as well as information regarding the All India Council meeting to be held in Delhi on 7-8 April, 2003

Principal decisions of the Nagpur meeting:

Mumbai was the consensus decision based on the understanding that the WSF must be inclusive and must not be seen just as an event but as a process that will provide mass movements and organisations the impetus to deepen the struggle against neo-liberal and imperialist globalisation and also in facing the challenges of religious sectarianism that has taken on fascist overtones in India.

Resolution on organisation:

This all India Consultation resolves to constitute a Indian Council reflective of all social groups / movements / ideological groupings / mass organisations / regions including marginalised sections like Dalits, Adivasis, unorganised sector, women, and minorities reflecting the plurality of the Indian situation, opposing imperialist globalisation, communalism and casteism and committed to building another world. This India Council would have the right to co-opt members to fill gaps in representation including incorporating representatives of state processes and for functional reasons, and would meet at least once every 3 months. All members must adhere to the charter of the WSF and make voluntary contributions
