Thursday, January 27, 2005: Lula!
In the morning, Lula spoke at the Gigantinho stadium where he helped launch the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (see http://www.whiteband.org/).
the afternoon and evening, I spent time at Puxirum,
the space for Indigenous peoples at the WSF. I am posting information from
those events to the Ecuarunari web
please visit that page for more information and photos. On the right, kids slide
down the hill at Puxirum.
"Towards a new international financial order" is one of many panels that NIGD organized at the WSF. Here NIGD member Mika Rönkkö listens to Eric Toussaint's presentation. We will post reports on these panels to our website http://www.nigd.org/.
