World Social Forum Video Call
Call for 1-minute video
in preparation for the Global action day on January 26th, 2008
Participate in constructing a great collective audiovisual story, sharing a 1 minute video to say that: "An other World is Possible"!
The 26th of January 2008 will be a long world-wide day, of colors, mobilisations, performance artistic, direct actions, meetings, where we women and men who recongnize ourselves in the Charter of principles of the World Social Forum will be protagonists.
We, who in these years, from Seattle in '99 to Port Alegre, Genoa, Mumbai, Nairobi, Cancun and many other places of the Earth, have learned that another narration is possible and that the right to information is a right to freedom;
We are launching this call to artists, musicians, directors, filmakers, media activists, telestreets, webtvs, communication and information professionals and to all who want to contribute to tell in a 1 minute video that another World is really possible and live today!
Let's create a huge collective multimedia story, "a visual" mobilisation on the web, that will accompany us to the Global Day of Action and continue until the World Social Forum in 2009 (Belem, Amazons). It is our testimony, the dissemination of our ideas, our dreams, our fights, of who can no longer stand this corrupt world and knows that there are many alternatives!
We propose therefore to use the website www.wsftv.net as a common platform, but also to develop it together; it will be connected to the www.wsf2008.net portal as a tool in order to exchange the videos and to redistribute them in one gigantic "virtual public square", to use "the free" means that Internet offers as well as to reach out to those who don't have access to the Internet, by copying and redistributing the audiovisual materials offered for this event.
January 26, 2008 will be the enormous construction of a worldwide network -- an informative one that for a day shall be on the center of the stage.
We must "occupy" the mainstream information and show that there are many alternatives!
Let's try to inter-communicate from all parts of the Earth and affirm that "Another world is possible"!
