> was “People’s Struggles, People’s Alternatives”. The World Social 
> Forum is expanding democratic spaces for those seeking concrete, 
> sustainable and progressive alternatives to globalization. 
> Both conferences triggered us to think about the question: “What’s 
> after capitalism?” Take a look at how some of our participants at 
> September’s Table of Free Voices answered the question. Then share
