The 10th edition of World Social Forum (WSF) is kicking off tomorrow – Sunday, February 6 – in Dakar, Senegal. Until February 11, thousands of delegates from various civil society organizations will be meeting together within the context of capitalism in crisis, which calls for novel, global solutions. The Confédération des syndicats nationaux will be there once again this year.
Nine people form the CSN delegation, which includes its vice-president, Louis Roy. On February 9, he will lead a special workshop on the Quality Public Services – Action Now! campaign. This campaign was launched last fall in Geneva by the Council of Global Unions, which brings together large democratic union federations from all countries. One of its objectives is to convince municipalities and public administrations to become involved in promoting and defending public services, particularly by endorsing a global charter.
