A delegation of activists from MENA Solidarity Network will take part in the World Social Forum in Tunis between 26-30 March. We will be joining thousands of activists from Tunisia and around the world for the event, in order to share our experiences of organising solidarity with the Arab revolutions and in particular to learn from colleagues in Tunisia about the challenges facing the revolution there.
