Great to read that - and how - you were touched, Scarletwine!

Little changes can make a big difference.

Well, I surely hope this speech gets more than 130 views.

Great post!

I love demonstrations as well, particularly the anti-war demos of the last year. I can't wait for February 15th where we're expecting to have at least half a million people on a march through London

I don't always agree with all the speakers at those rallies, but I agree with what you said: the main issue overrides all the smaller disagreements. We might disagree on every other issue but if we're united in our opposition to war then we should all work together to have the strongest possibly opposition to war.

whenhiphop, did you get Arundathi's speech from the World Social Forum website? I haven't read it yet, thanks. I was on vacations.

I watched the last conference of the World Social Forum III. The theme was How to Face the Empire. In the link below is the other speech, by Noam Chomsky.

Ah, thatīs okay whenhiphop If you can read in other language than english you can check the link below, the libray of alternatives section of the WSF website. There are lots of good reading in english, spanish, portuguese, french and italian.

And in case you donīt know, the 4th edition of the World Social Forum will be in India, in 2004. Guess itīs easy to wonder why, by reading Arundathiīs speech.

Tchau
