World Social Forum- Mariah Fuller

Today I attended this wonderful event at the Left Forum which took place at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I thought it was a great panel that discussed the social justice struggles in Montreal between the north and south and also, Indigenous rights, environmental issues, and also student’s movements which reflect our own struggles here in the US. In the last 15 years they have been advocating changes as a collective and this marked the first year that they have come here to present their cause. Their discussion helped many attendees question our own actions that we should take toward change because we allow those in power to make unequal decisions for not only us, but the rest of the world.
