The 2013 edition of the World Social Forum (WSF) which was held for the first time in North Africa, two years after « The Jasmine Revolution« was intended from the outset as a support to the democratic process in Tunisia.
The Forum was as always a highlight of debates and exchanges between actors from different social movements from all continents who work in their own way for a « another world » a more just, more equal world, beyond capitalism.
Different African social movements from several African countries, concerned with different issues, notably human rights, women, migrants, farmers, fishermen, environmentalists, social and development activism, but also journalists took a active part in the various « assemblies of convergence », « forums » and workshops and participated in the media coverage of this great forum.
