The World Social Forum (WSF 2018) will take place in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, from 13 to 17 of March. The main territory will be the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA), but the WSF will spread through the public, cultural and peripheral spaces of the city. It will have seminars, plenary sessions, workshops, cultural activities, conferences, marches and acts through the city.

Resistance Encounter

The dreams of humanity today are confronted with the fundamentalisms of wars and xenophobia and systems of domination with their new ways of striking liberties and democracies.The ability to resist is violently challenged. That is why the organizations and movements aligned with the Charter of Principles of the World Social Forum again call themselves together to gather their diversity of struggles and join forces for resistance.

Salvador 2018 will be this moment of encounter: horizontal, self-managed, determined.If you agree with the WSF Charter of Principles, you are already a part of it. Contribute, in person or at a distance.The Salvador meeting will be networked, with everyone who wants to participate.
