On 30th April 2005 Bristol activists from diverse political backgrounds organised to launch a Bristol Social Forum. Inspired by the World and European Social Forums, and bonded by the belief in people over profit, local social forums now exist around the world.
The Bristol Social Forum aims to be a place where people can communicate and learn from each other. Its purpose is to make links between groups and between individuals, in the belief that getting together is vital for effective campaigning and local action.
The 4th European Social Forum will be taking place in Athens-Greece from the 4th - 7th of May 2006. Tens of thousands of activists participated in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd European Social Forums which took place in Florence (2002), Paris (2003) and London (2004).
