From February 6th to 11th, 2011 the 11th World Social Forum will take place in Dakar, the Senegalese capital. This is why from mid-January bus and car caravans will start their journey to Dakar from several places in Africa.
One of those caravans is the ‘WSF Citizens’ Caravan for Freedom of Movement and Equitable Development’, which will begin in Bamako. It expects 200 to 400 participants mainly from African (especially West African) countries. There will be several actions, for example against the EU’s border protection agency Frontex and illegal deportations from Mauretania to Mali, which are sponsored by the EU (read more about the Caravan).
