Opening Event World Social Forum Nairobi 2007
by A visitor
This is the opening ceremony of the World Social Forum in Nairobi in 2007 with speeches, music and dance. The opening took place in Uhuru park - a park where a lot of political rallies are.
The World Social Forum (WSF) is an international forum of people and groups who want to change society to make it more equal, to protect the environment, etc. They hold international meetings every few years.
The Nairobi event was great. There were 66,000 people present from 110 countries. I was there with some friends from Germany and the Netherlands. The organisation was pretty chaotic on the first day, but after that it went OK.
