"Another World is Possible" is a rousing account of the 2002 World Social Forum that will inspire activists everywhere. "What we've been doing all week here is telling each other rumors, about creative and brave resistance, telling each other stories, that are true stories, that it is possible." Naomi Klein. What if 51,000 people from 131 countries put their heads together to discuss what is wrong with the world and how to work together to change it? In early 2002, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, public officials, representatives of non-governmental organizations, indigenous nations, farmers, and labor -- including 11,000 young people -- gathered for the World Social Forum. After watching this inspiring film we will look at films that document the protest movement in the Bay area after the war started in 2002. Following these films Not In Our Name will lead a discussion on the protest movement and world social forum.
Admission is free/donations appreciated.
