Programme_WSFThe Global Campaign will be present at WSF under the umbrella of the Convergence Space: “PEOPLE AND THE PLANET BEFORE PROFIT! Moving away from Free Trade and Extractivism to Dismantle Corporate Power. ”, that is convened by more than 100 international, regional and national movements, networks and organisations.


As part of the World Social Forum the space provides an opportunity for groups and movements, that battle everywhere against extractivism and work for social justice, attack the architecture of Free Trade and Investment Agreements, challenge daily the power of corporations, and fight for climate justice, to come together. The aim is to build momentum and strengthen the coordination of front-line, direct, non-violent, disturbing and anti-systemic actions to confront the neoliberal capitalist system.

Moving Away from Free Trade and Extractivism to Dismantle Corporate Power” on August 12, from 4 pm to 6 pm (UQAM – Pavillon A – Local A M050)
