What is behind the current protest movements which expand worldwide? Are = they spontaneous or coordinated? To which objectives do they respond? Do = they really seek "world peace"? Why are they silent regarding the crimes = of the dictatorial regime in Iraq; the cruelties of the Colombian = narco-guerillas; the violations of political and religious rights in = communist countries such as China, Cuba, North Korea & Laos, the = persecutions against Christians in Muslim countries; and the pro-Castro = despotism of Venezuelan President Chavez? We hope that this article = about the recent World Social Forum, which we distribute under our = exclusive responsibility, will shine the light on all this. Hope to hear = from you.

The World Social Forum 2003: Its Networks, Goals and Strategies

* "Liliputian" and "Invisible" tactics give the appearance of = spontaneity to what in reality is a gigantic protest organization

* Short and medium term objectives for Europe, the United States, Latin = America and India

Until recently, leftist movements were set up in hierarchical fashion, = around a party or a mass movement type group. Today, the model in vogue = is the network, a kind of "(dis)organization" which "does not possess a = hierarchical structure nor a headquarters," counting only on "nodes" in = whose intercessions are united "horizontally" hundreds and thousands of = protest groups. It's what explains the Italo-Brazilian Jose Luiz Del = Roio, an intellectual whose participation was decisive in the Third = World Social Forum (Porto Alegre, Brazil, Jan. 23-28, 2003), director of = the Italian marxist association "Ponto Rosso" (Red Point).

The strategic advantages of an organization of networks set up = horizontally and not hierarchically are great. To illustrate this, Del = Roio gives as an example the Italian "Liliputian network," whose "moral = leader" is the Catholic priest Alex Zanotelli, one of the most active = figures of "liberation theology," and the leftist Catholic in Italy, a = sort of Friar Betto of that country. The name and way of acting of that = network makes reference to the work of the Irish author Jonathan Swift, = in which a multitude of tiny midgets were able to neutralize the = gigantic Gulliver.

The "Liliputian" strategy consists in building the largest possible = worldwide network, constantly conquering space and influence in front of = public opinion so as to obtain the isolation, relegating to = unimportance, and "an ever narrower, tighter and thick" fence = surrounding the actual Gulliver, represented by the conservative America = government and by so-called neo-liberalism. Another tactic of the = networks mentioned by Del Roio is the "invisibility" of action, inspired = by the Zapatista guerrillas of Chiapas, which makes it difficult for the = adversary to detect the identity of he who opposes him. In the mass = demonstrations in Italy, this "invisibility" was reflected in tens of = thousands of protesters wearing "tutte bianche" (all dressed in white = clothes), "almost as if they were ghosts."
