Nairobi, Jan 17 (Prensa Latina) The right of the nations to self-determination, an economic order without transnational control and greater participation of the people stand out in the agenda defined for the VII World Social Forum in the Kenyan capital from January 20 to 25. The calendar has not been scheduled for more than 1,300 self-organized activities (registered by several social movements), sources of the Organizing Committee told Prensa Latina. For the WSF coordinators, the discussions to reach consensus on the main "other world" space at a planetary level are arduous. Jose Miguel Gonzalez, member of the International Council of the Forum, stated that the attendees, expected to be between 80,000 and 120,000 delegates from all over the world, will give special attention to nine subjects that constitute the main objectives. Constructing a peaceful world, justice, ethics and respect for spiritual diversity, liberation of the world from multinational domination and financial capital, and the democratization of knowledge and information are among the themes. Gonzalez, also representative of the Cuban Workers Central union, said they plan multiple events to assure sustainable and universal access to humanity s common and sustainable resources and benefits. hr ccs mgs ucl PL-36
