The European Social Forum opens in Athens

"Unionists, ecologists, pacifists, economists and libertarians are gathering today in Athens," the daily reports as the Greek capital plays host to 15,000 activists and 8,000 police deployed for the opening of the 4th European Social Forum (FSE). "They will have to overcome the bitter taste of London," the newspaper observes, referring to the third Forum in October 2004, which left the impression that the movement was running out of steam and "tarnished the image of those who seek an alternative to globalisation". The event offers "an opportunity for the country to reaffirm its geostrategic and geopolitical position. If there is no true organisation in the proper sense of the term, there is a real anti-globalist tendency in Greece, deriving from our history, in the Balkans and in Turkey."
