The forum kicked off on August 9 with several hundred people marching from La Fontaine Park to the streets of Montreal. Started in 2001 in Brazil, The World Social Forum (WSF) is the largest gathering of civil society to discuss and find solutions to current global problems. This year’s theme is: Another world is needed. Together, it is possible.
