by Lilian and Betania of the Feminist Dialogs.
(summary translation of the interview)

On the question what was her impression of this WSF, Lilian Celiberti responded:
This forum had two very contradictory faces. On one side there is the strong and very active African Participation, many women, youth and other organizations.
And on the other side there is the very poor logistical organization. A dialog needs certain preconditions such as venues and translation. Otherwise it is impossible to share, exchange and enrich each other. To organize a WSF means to provide the space that the different struggles of the world can come together. These preconditions were not given in this WSF.
