Activism and BDS Beat 10 October 2012
In this video, Palestinians call for participation in the World Social Forum Free Palestine. Happening in Porto Alegre, Brazil at the end of November, the social forum is now open for registration.
The World Social Forum has been an regular convergence since 2001, but it usually covers a wide range of topics and discussions. But one weekend in November will be devoted to activism around Palestine alone. The website describes the WSF as:
an open meeting place where social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations opposed to neo-liberalism and a world dominated by capital or by any form of imperialism come together to pursue their thinking, to debate ideas democratically, for formulate proposals, share their experiences freely and network for effective action.
The even is being organized by committees in Palestine and Brazil and is receiving funding from the Brazilian government. You can register for the event here.
Jamal Jumaa of Stop the Wall, the Palestinian anti-apartheid wall campaign, gives more detail and background on the event in this interview:

Love to be there but it looks doubtful.
So allways remember Apartheid was wrong in South Africa and is certainly wrong in Palestine.
