Objectives of the Forum: 

To support the vital, on-going expansion of social justice movements in Iraq, Iraqis and internationals are working together to establish an Iraqi Social Forum that will be an open political and social space for movements, organizations, and individuals, who share a progressive agenda, to gather together in Iraq. The Forum will facilitate the exchange of information and coordination of activities among Iraqi civil society organizations. Several Iraqi NGOs and unions are already working under the slogan “Another Iraq is Possible”, to organize a Forum based upon the principles of the World Social Forum Charter, which unites people worldwide who struggle for human rights, peace and social justice, and against neoliberal policies and militarism. The Forum is planned for September 2013 in Baghdad. In the spirit of the Arab Spring, the Forum organizers have declared, “through the power of the people we will build democracy and respect for human rights; corruption must end; we will provide food and work for our youth”.
