World Social Forum on Science and Democracy March 14th, evening

This event is the latest in a series that have taken place every two years, in conjunction with the World Social Forum. This year, the event will be in Belem, Brazil and we have organised to view a live stream of the event at the Balham Bowls Club pub, 7-9 Ramsden Rd, London SW12 8QX. The pub is close to both Balham overground and underground stations.

The streaming will be from 5pm to 9m: the idea is to be quite informal and sociable and to discuss the talks amongst ourselves. The likely schedule of talks (translated from Portuguese, with UK times) is below, although this is still subject to change. In the event of problems with the live streaming, we will screen a technology politics-related film. We look forward to seeing you there.
