The Village Under the Forest
by Mark Kaplan and Heidi Grunebaum

As a child in South Africa, writer/narrator Heidi Grunebaum put her pennies in a box to help build a forest in Israel. 20 years later she revisits the forest she helped finance, only to find that it was not a project for growth but rather one that would disguise deliberate obliteration.

Under a cultivated plantation called ‘South Africa Forest’ are hidden the remains of the destroyed Palestinian village of Lubya. Prompted by a questioning of what it meant to be complicit with Apartheid, the film tackles the question of responsibility in light of the erasure of the village.

World Social Forum

World Social Forum 2013

26 - 30 March, 2013
Tunis, Tunisia

The World Social Forum is a space to democratically debate ideas, deepen reflection, develop proposals, share experiences and connect social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations which oppose neoliberalism, the domination of capital over the world and any type of imperialism. The first global convening in 2001 led to a global process of research and development of alternatives to neoliberal policies. This process is inscribed in the WSF Charter of Principles.

The World Social Forum is characterized by its plurality and its diversity. It is neither denominational nor governmental nor linked to any political party. It's goal is to facilitate connections, through decentralized and networking practices, among organizations and movements involved locally and globally in concrete actions aimed at building another world, without trying however to be a representative body of global civil society. The World Social Forum is neither an association nor an organization.

Proposing an activity The main part of the activities held during a WSF are the result of proposals coming from organizations and movements from all around the world. To achieve that, several steps have to be implemented :

- From 15 October to 1 December 2012 all the organizations can submit proposed activities (discussions, workshops...) through the website, indicating the thematic area in which this activity will be included.

- On the 1st of December 2012, the proposed activites stage will be closed. All the submitted activities will then be published on the website, with the contacts (email, phone number...) of the persons who submitted them.

- 2 December to 1 February 2013 is the amalgamation or « agglutination » phase for activities to be held in Tunis. This in a very important and core part of the WSF process and rôle: Promoting the exchange of experiences and the development of international actions and campaigns.

- 15 January until 1 February is when all activities are registered on the website, with details provided regarding room size, translation needs, date and time preferences, whether or not an "expanded" (off site) activity will be organized... Your "thematic area" will have been chosen to enable us to organize physical spaces at the main site of the Forum. It is also at this step that you can express your choices for the "convergence assemblies" which take place during the final day.

- In early March the program will be published on this website and in a printed version.
