WORLD SOCIAL FORUM, Caracas, Venezuela
The majority of goods and services, from coffee to phone calls can be gotten in the informal economy of Caracas. The woman pictured was selling small cups of coffee for 300 bolivares, or about 30 cents.
The World Social Forum is an
annual gathering of social justice activists from around the world. The Forum
provides a place and time for people from various human rights struggles to
gather and exchange ideas, strategies, stories and perhaps most importantly,
support. As they say at the Forum “otro mundo es posible”— another world is
possible. PHOTOS AND TEXT BY ELISA GURULÉ [MWRO
