5-7 of November 2004 in Minsk Belarusian Social Forum (BSF) will be held
for the first time. The event was initiated by The Federation of Anarchists
of Belarus, "NAVINKI" newspaper crew, non-governmental organizations
"Belarusian Lambda League", Republican Youth Female Association "YANA",
Belarusian Social-Democratic Youth "Maladaya Hramada", Belarusian Social
Movement "RAZAM!" and by some other social initiatives.
The BSF's aim is to bring together activists of social and civil movements,
NGOs and initiatives, who are OPPOSED to neoliberalism, to the anti-social
reforms, started in our country, who are AGAINST the domination of the world
by capital and any form of dictatorship, who are FOR the society which main
value is human being, his rights and liberties, social equality and solidarity
among people. The Forum must put the beginning to the steady discussion and
elaboration of alternatives to the neoliberalism, later on and out of the
framework of the meeting itself.

In conformity with the World Social Forum Charter, Belarusian Social
Forum is based on the principles of equality and plurality of participants.
It's neither an event organized by a party or by a governmental structure,
or a religious confession. We invite to join the Forum all individuals,
social initiatives, NGOs, independent trade-unions, artistic and other
groups, who share the principles mentioned above and want to take part in
one or several following working groups:

1. Local self-government and social movements in Belarusian regions
2. Globalization and neoliberalism: impact on Belarus
3. Belarus after European Union enlargement
4. Worker's movement and trade-unions in Belarus
5. NGOs in Belarus
6. Alternative media perspectives in Belarus
7. Ecologist movement in Belarus
8. Gender issues and problems of women in Belarus
9. Minorities rights movements in Belarus
