With a contagious energy and a brilliant array of colour the World Social Forum burst onto the streets of Porto Alegre, Brazil, yesterday evening. More than 120,000 people marched through the downtown with banners, puppets, drums, chants and songs. Most of the banners and placards decried U.S. imperialism, the war on Iraq and the FTAA, but the march seemed more like a celebration of the growth of the social forum movement than anything else. Watch for more rabble in Brazil - voices from the third annual World Social Forum in Porto Alegre.

There have always been common issues between the left in Quebec and the left in English Canada, but that commonality ended when we arrived at electoral politics. Most of the left in Quebec supported the Parti Quebecois, and in English Canada the left was divided between those who supported the New Democratic Party and those who turned their back on electoral politics.

Yasser Akawi is what they call an Arab Israeli - a Palestinian with Israeli citizenship. He works for Physicians for Human Rights, an organisation composed of both Jewish and Palestinian doctors. But his passion is with Ta’ayush. It too is an organisation composed of Palestinians and Israelis. (Ta’ayush means "living together.")
