Social Forum of Eastern Europe and Cooperation between East and South - March 2016 - Wroclaw, Poland

The initiative of Forum has been born as the result of discussion with our friends and comrades from Hungary, Bulgaria, Serbia, Ukraine and others countries. We recognized that it is a time to start the discussion, exchange the experiences and join in the fight for the better world.

Together with friends and comrades from North Africa and Greece we analyzed the political and economical situation in our regions finding many similarities. Construction of solidarity among societies which are under the pressure of peripherisation is one of the main aim of Forum.

During the Forum we want to analyze the past time of so-called real socialism but we want mainly to focus on our common cooperation and actions now and in the future. Our aim is to build the links among left organizations and activists in our region and Mediterranean area and struggle together!

Join us!
