                  The objective is demonstrate how the WSF is an alive process in local, national, regional and thematic forums, in many plural struggles, campaigns and alternatives for another world, developed in all the planet. The date, January 26th, has been chosen as a way to keep the confrontation with World Economic Forum, a neoliberal elite meeting always had during January in Davos, Switzerland.

                  How to get involved?
                  The global day of mobilisation and action will take place by all organisations and movements at international, national, local level concerned to get involved in it. Each network, movement, organisation will decide how to organise their own actions and will define their subjects, formats and how will articulate national and international connections.

                  - sign the global call (on the website www.wsf2008.net)
                  - disseminate it as much as possible, using its own ways of communication (newsletter, websites, newspaper, radio programme, or disseminating the call for its mailing lists)
                  - give visibility to the possible actions already planed for the week and for January 26th 2008
                  - propose national and international connections among actions

                  To global day of mobilisation and action be successful, it's needed everybody disseminate information to all regions of the planet, taking part actively in the concrete construction process of local mobilisations.
