1. Action

The group have created a facebook page:


They have basically focus on create links and contacts, among them World Social Forum

2.   Global call

Basically they have read different proposals from all over the world.
They have also opened a group on n-1 for enabling larger participation:


They have also created a tool to facilitate discussion that will  be launched on Monday February 20th:


-The contact email is globalcall@metabilly.org

It is reported that for the 15O we did not make a Global Call, since it is difficult to resume all demands on a global one. And some people do not think is necessary for 12M15M. they argued that local call is better to adapt to each different context.

It is said that the debt could be a possible connection point, because surely all agree we would be annulled.

3. Methodology

The group was empty. Facilitators group takes over, as it is the work that has already being done.

4. Technical Group

The group was empty. It remains open pending to be formed and which you will find necessary technical group.

POINT B (information, questions, suggestions …)

There is open a talk of possible changing/rotating the schedule of meetings in order to facilitate  China participation (due to different timing).
