Another Left is Possible!

SSP member with Rifondazione flag, Florence anti-war demo.

The European Social Forum saw a movement essentially led by the left but not dominated by it. The key role of Rifondazione was clear but Bertinnoti made clear that they did not seek hegemony over the movement, they are just a component part of it. This is the key lesson of the forum, and without this approach the forum would probably not have taken place.

The anti-war demonstration was also quite remarkable, with up to one million attending. The SSP delegation was given a very warm welcome by Italian activists and the people of Florence. The demo is an experience few of us will forget.
