In the first decade of the World Social Forum Process a network of alternative media established itself – especially in Latin America. The fight for communication rights and a transformation of the commercialized media sector, which hardly ever reported in favor of social movements and almost always in favor of the ruling classes owning the major media, was achieved in some countries. Since the revolutions in North Africa which were also initiated and maintained through media activists and now also with the threat of political backlash in the region, there is a widespread interest in communication rights. So time to network and exchange ideas! The seminar will hopefully be one small step in this process. We will also try to make use of the WSF extended to make a connection with Quito and Mexico City. This seminar and workshops with all the speakers will also be part of the FREE MEDIA FORUM which is taking place before (24th and 25th of March) and during the WSF.
