ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE: CULTURES OF RESISTANCE - Toronto World Social Forum, January 26th

ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE: CULTURES OF RESISTANCE

SAVE THE DATE for Toronto Social Forum 2008!

DATE: Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 7 p.m.
PLACE: 55 Gould Street, Ryerson Student Centre
INFO: tsf@ryerson.ca

This year the World Social Forum has called for a Global Day of Action in
the week of January 26th (the usual date of the WSF gatherings). More than
1,600 organizations and individuals around the world have already signed
the call committing to organize activities during that week. In Toronto we
intend to be part of this worldwide movement.

As our part of the Global Day of Action, the Toronto Social Forum is
inviting organizations and artists to come together to represent our local
struggles and cultures through music, performance and art in a public
event.

As the Global Day of Action is close to the date of the twentieth
anniversary of one of the greatest victories of the women's movement in
Canada and in Toronto - the Supreme Court's Morgentaler decision striking
down the abortion law - we will kick off our evening of culture with a
tribute to that victory and the women's movement today.

This evening will be a gathering of communities and movements from across
the City to celebrate activism and global/local connections.

If your organization is interested in co-sponsoring the event, please
contact tsf@ryerson.ca for more information. A limited amount of tabling
space will also be available - please contact us by January 14th to book
space.
