Report from the Asian Social Forum, 2-7 January, Hyderabad, India

Asia Social Forum pledges to resist globalisation and imperialism.

The Asia Social Forum (ASF) concluded as a major success on 7 January 2003, not only with the strong participation of all the countries from Asia but also in solidarity building and forming new leaderships in the social movements that have begun the activity to resist militarism, globalisation and imperialism. A gathering of over 14,000 people reaffirmed their unfaltering commitment to make another world possible, as this is felt as an utmost necessity for the whole Asian region. Eminent economists, political thinkers and activists addressed the plenaries that were aimed at contributing to the analysis and the strategic thinking to the anti-globalisation struggle.
